Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is on the verge severely changing his marital status after reportedly proposing to reality star girlfriend Kim Kardashian this week.
According to reports, Mr. West decided to pop the question to Kim K on her birthday.
Sweet Yeezus! Kanye West swooped into San Francisco Monday night and proposed to Kim Kardashian on her 33rd birthday, E! News reported early Tuesday morning. The rapper, 36, popped the question to the mother of his child at AT&T Park, which was rented out for Kardashian’s big day, the site reported. Having received future mother-in-law Kris Jenner‘s blessing, West proposed to Kardashian with a 15-carat diamond ring made by celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. (New York Daily News)
At AT&T Park, Kanye reportedly asked for Kim’s hand in marriage courtesy of a huge ballpark screen.
Maintaining the theatricality, West also arranged for the jumbo screen to read “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” and a 50-piece orchestra to play Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” and Keri Hilson, Ne-Yo and West’s ‘Knock You Down.” (New York Daily News)
Kim is hoping third time will be the charm after previously donning wedding rings on two past occasions.
This will be not the first wedding for Kardashian, who has been married twice before. Kardashian recently ended a bitter divorce battle with NBA player Kris Humphries. The two were married for 72 days back in 2011, but their divorce case lasted longer than the two were married. Their marriage finally ended earlier this year. Kardashian also was married to music producer Damon Thomas, ending in 2004. (ABC News)
Earlier this month, Kanye spoke on his love for Kim K and the family she has provided him.
“Family time. It’s what Kim gave me. She gave me everything. She gave me a family. She gave me a support system,” Kanye said when asked if he takes time for himself away from always working. “She was in a powerful enough situation where she could love me without asking me for money, which is really hard for me to find.” (BBC Radio 1)
