Kimye watchers, many of you may have been cynical about whether this pair of fame-loving stars would ever be able to make a heartfelt commitment. Don’t you think the answer is yes now?

Kanye West, your intricately thought-out marriage proposal to Kim Kardashian demonstrates the deep sincerity of your love for her. After Kim’s 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries — which ended with her filing divorce papers in a move that took Kris by complete surprise — a lot of Kardashian-watchers wondered if Kim could ever have a real romance that was definitively not manufactured for the reality TV cameras. But you have proven them all wrong, Kanye!

Kim Kardashian Proposal Video Shows Kanye West’s Real Love For Kim

Many people wondered if Kim’s new relationship with Kanye, which started just a couple months after her split from Kris, was just another Keeping Up with the Kardashians plot device. Since Kanye isn’t exactly known for being fame-shy, their relationship seemed like a perfect made-for-a-season-of-TV romance.

Of course, Kanye complied by appearing in a season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, but all these doubters should give it a rest after watching the new video of Kanye getting down on one knee and proposing to Kim in the middle of AT&T Stadium in San Francisco while an orchestra played Lana Del Rey‘s “Young and Beautiful.”

Kim couldn’t have looked happier, and she appeared to be crying tears of joy in the video! And then the couple kissed and embraced in a very long, loving, real-looking hug of happiness. The scene may have been filmed for KUWTK — in fact, it looked like it was — but it truly seemed like Kim was taken by total surprise with Kanye’s proposal. She may have been expecting a special birthday present, but not this big moment — at least not then.

In any case, you have to admire how lovingly Kanye put together the whole beautiful, detailed proposal. He booked the stadium, he arranged for the Jumbotron to say “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”, he had a 50-piece orchestra, he had big, big Roman candles going off to illuminate the sky, and he arranged for their nearest and dearest to hide out in the dugout until after his proposal and then surprise his new fiance. All the women were dressed to the nines in gowns, including Kourtney Kardashian in red. Even Jaden Smith, Kylie Jenner‘s boyfriend, made an appearance.

The proposal turned into a full-blown party, and why not? There’s lots to celebrate! Kim is beaming in an entirely genuine way in all of the photos — truly happy that her longtime love and the father of North West would now be her life partner.

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Have Found True Love

I think it’s easy to be cynical when two very high-profile people who both enjoy media attention fall in love. But Kanye, 36, has reportedly been crushing on Kim for years. Meanwhile, Kim, 33, liked Kanye as a good friend for many years, but kept getting involved with men who were wrong for her.

But in this case, Kim will be marrying her best friend, which is always the right thing to do. The reality star shared her excitement with E! Online, saying, “I get to marry my best friend!” We know that Kanye was totally excited about proposing to Kim, too. In fact, reported EXCLUSIVELY that Kanye told a group of fans that he couldn’t wait to make Kim his wife.

Kanye’s loving being a dad even more than he ever thought he would, and he’s also loving Kim’s extra curves and was in no way bothered that it took her a few months to lose the extra weight in a healthy way. That too shows that he loves Kim for the right reasons, and that she has the right support from her man.

So let’s all give Kim and Kanye giant congratulations and best wishes on their upcoming marriage. Did you think that Kanye’s proposal was completely romantic, HollywoodLifers? Let me know.
