Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Engaged On Kim’s 33rd Birthday
“Kanye wanted to make Kim’s birthday something she would never forget. Kim is on cloud nine and couldn’t have asked for anything more on her day. She is in a great place with her child healthy and happy, and now getting engaged seals the deal on her happiness,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “When it comes to Kanye and marrying him, her thoughts are, ‘Three’s a charm.'”
HollywoodLife.com also spoke to E! who released this statement to us:
“We’ve always known that Kim is a big believer in love, and we are thrilled for her and Kanye. It sounds as though Kanye’s surprise proposal was befitting for this incredibly romantic couple and we look forward to sharing many more magical moments as the family celebrates Kim and Kanye’s exciting next chapter.”
Kanye’s lavish proposal was picture-perfect romance! He flew her to San Francisco, CA, blindfolded her and then took her to AT&T Park, TMZ reported.
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, as well as Lana Del Rey‘s “Young and Beautiful.” Kim’s family was also involved with the proposal! They hid in the dugout and then ran out after Kanye asked Kim to marry him! Sister Kourtney Kardashian is the first to get to Kim, embracing her, while Rob Kardashian shakes Kanye’s hand first from what we see in their engagement video. Jaden Smith was even there! SO cute!
The stadium’s jumbotron also read,”PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” Kanye previously asked Kris Jenner for permission to propose. Aww!
Kanye 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. Now that’s how it’s done!
We’re so excited for the adorable family of three — especially since we knew that Kanye told Kim and fans at his Oct. 20 concert that he was going to marry her!
Kanye West Told Fans He Wanted To Marry Kim Kardashian
Before he took the stage in Seattle to kick off his Yeezus concert, Kanye announced to Kim and a crowd of fans that he’s planning to put a ring on her finger — one day before he proposed!
“One day I’m going to marry you,” Kanye said to Kim in front of the group, a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
That day might have come sooner than Kim thought it would!
“Isn’t my girl the most beautiful woman ever — no, I mean ever? One day she’s going to be my wife,” Kanye stated, another lucky fan told us. We’re told Kim blushed from ear to ear and said, “Kaaaanye. You’re too much,” and gave him a kiss!
This will be Kim’s third marriage. She married music producer Damon Thomas when she was 19 in 2000, with the divorce finalized in 2004. Then, Kim married Kris Humphries in 2011, with the divorce finalized in 2013. Kim began dating Kanye shortly after ending her marriage to Kris, even though the newly engaged duo have been friends for many years. The couple’s 4-month-old daughter, North, was born on June 15.
We can’t wait for Kimye to tie the knot! What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you happy that Kim and Kanye are engaged? Let us know!
