Though Kanye’s proposal to Kim on Oct. 21 was absolutely lavish, he was able to keep it under wraps from the entire Kardashian family besides Kris Jenner. Not even Kourtney and Khloe saw it coming!
Kanye West, 36, apparently had a ton of tricks under his sleeve as he prepared for his elaborate proposal to Kim Kardashian on Oct. 21. We aren’t the only ones who didn’t see it coming — reportedly Kim’s sisters Kourtney and Khloe were also kept in the dark!
The Kardashian Sisters Shocked By Kanye West’s Proposal
Most of the family actually had plans to be elsewhere on the night of the engagement — a spa getaway in Arizona, according to E!. As Kourtney, Khloe, Kris, and Kendall planned to head to Arizona for the relaxing vacay, they suddenly received word that Kanye had a birthday surprise for Kim, and that he wanted the family to be in attendance for it. So they had no choice but to cancel and travel to San Francisco.
“Only Kris knew it was a proposal. Her sisters didn’t know,” a source close to the family told E! News. “They just thought it was a birthday surprise.”
But not only did Kanye trick the family into coming to San Fran, he also tricked them into hiding it from Kim!
“The word came down on Friday that Kanye wanted to surprise Kim on her birthday,” the insider explained.” So, the Arizona trip was canceled, but everyone told Kim they were still going to Arizona.”
Ha! How slick are those Kardashians? “Khloé even talked to Kim on the phone that afternoon and pretended she was in Arizona, but she was actually in her hotel room in San Francisco.”
Just imagine how shocked the sisters were when they arrived at AT&T Park to discover that they weren’t just tricking Kim — they had also been tricked!
Kanye West Proposes To Kim Kardashian On Her Birthday
As we know, Kanye is no stranger to putting on a show — literally! On Oct. 21, the rapper proposed to his longtime girlfriend and mother of his child with an extravagant engagement celebration took place at San Francisco’s AT&T Park with approximately 100 family and friends in attendance.
“Kanye rented out the stadium, and proposed on bended knee while a 50-piece orchestra played,” E! reported. The band performed Kanye’s song with Ne-Yo and Keri Hilson, “Knock You Down,” as soon as Kanye proposed, and they also performed Lana Del Rey‘s “Young and Beautiful.” The stadium’s jumbotron read in caps, “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” Aw! How romantic and sweet!
He presented his bride-to-be with a flawless 15-carat diamond from jeweler and close family friend Lorraine Schwartz! Fireworks and Roman candles exploding in the sky finished off the celebration. Such a cute couple, and what a perfect proposal.
