Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are reportedly engaged.
Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian in a private event at AT&T Park in San Francisco, California, according to eonline.com.
The rapper reportedly proposed with a 15-carat diamond ring by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.
Kanye West reportedly rented out the stadium for the evening. He invited friends and family to attend the event, as per eonline.com. West also hired a 50-piece orchestra to perform several selections, including Lana Del Rey’s “Young & Beautiful” and Keri Hilson’s “Knock You Down,” a track that also features Ne-Yo and Kanye West.
In February, Kim Kardashian spoke about potentially being married to Kanye West.
“[Marriage] is something I know that we both want in our future, but I don’t have this sense of urgency about it,” Kardashian said to Cosmopolitan. “I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa. It just feels like this is it for me.”
In August, Kanye West addressed his affection for Kardashian on her mother Kris Jenner’s talk show, “Kris.”
“I’m trying to remember if the first time we met was her being in the studio when she was Brandy’s assistant,” Kanye West said. “I think she brought us in something to drink that you can’t drink on daytime TV, but we were in the studio so it was okay. Or it might have been when I was doing Brandy’s video. I remember asking my manager, ‘Who is that girl?'”
During that interview, Kanye West also defended his relationship with Kardashian.
“I could have people saying, ‘This is going to damage your credibility as an artist or a designer,'” West said. “And I say, ‘I don’t care. I love this woman.’ Or someone could say, ‘When the paparazzi surround you, everyone knows you don’t like the paparazzi. Why would you be with this person?’ And I’m saying, ‘I’m being with this person because I love this person and she’s worth it to me.”
West and Kardashian have a daughter together, North West, who was born June 15.
