Kongrats to Kanye West! Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian on her 33rd birthday, and she accepted. The rapper popped the question in front Kim’s friends and family at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Monday night.
While the news may have seemed inevitable, Kanye certainly found a way to surprise his girlfriend: He had
attended the Hollywood Film Awards in Los Angeles just hours before, and hopped a plane to the Bay Area to ask Kim for her hand in marriage.
Yeezy rented out the entire stadium (home to the San Francisco Giants) in order to get down on one knee with a “flawless” 15-carat diamond ring from jeweler-to-the-stars Lorraine Schwartz.
Not one to leave the drama to chance, he also had a 50-piece orchestra on hand (the playlist included Lana Del Ray’s “Young and Beautiful” and Kanye’s own “Knock You Down”) as fireworks and Roman candles lit the sky.
But wait, there’s more! A huge screen at the park urged Kim to accept by flashing the message, “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”
West also made sure he had the green light from Kardashian’s mom-ager, Kris Jenner: He reportedly asked for her permission before making this Kim’s happiest birthday ever.
The longtime friends took their romance public in April 2012, several months after Kim’s infamous split from Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage.
This will be Kardashian’s third marriage (she divorced music producer Damon Thomas in 2004) and West’s first.
Kim and Kanye welcomed their daughter, North West, on June 15, 2013.
