Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ‘engaged’ following fireworks-laden proposal


Kim Kardashian is reportedly engaged to rapper Kanye West after he popped the question in lavish fashion.

According to the US website E! Online the Yeezus star – who is the father of Kim’s baby daughter North – surprised her with a romantic proposal on her 33rd birthday at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.

The site claims that Kanye even went so far as to rent out the entire stadium – which is close to San Jose where his Yeezus tour is set to continue – in order to ask Kim to marry him.

And he apparently popped the question to a backdrop of fireworks, candles and an orchestra before presenting Kim with a 15 carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring.

Local reporter Leah Garchick from the San Francisco Chronicle later tweeted: ”She said YES! At AT&T Park, w/ 50 musicians playing on field, @KanyeWest proposed to @KimKardashian tonight. All systems go! @sfgate”.

The surprise was made even bigger by the fact that just hours earlier the rapper had been in Los Angeles, where he presented director Steve McQueen with a special trophy at the Hollywood Film Awards.

Kim and Kanye – who announced they were an item in April 2012 – have long been the subject of marriage rumours, with Kim’s mum Kris Jenner previously telling E! News: ‘We think they make an amazing couple. We just want them to be happy.’

Kim previously wed NBA player Kris Humphries in a lavish ceremony in August 2011, but the marriage lasted just 72 days.
