Kim Kardashian received the ultimate surprise birthday present yesterday: an engagement ring from boyfriend Kanye West.
The 36-year old rapper chose to pop the question in front of Kim’s friends and family in San Francisco last night, where he was attending the Hollywood Film Awards to present director Steve McQueen with an award.
It wasn’t even clear whether the couple would be celebrating Kim‘s 33rd birthday together, as she was spotted on a jet to LA, while he was in SF. Looks like Kanye knows how to keep a secret.
But if you think this was a low-key, intimate event, think again. Kanye rented out the ENTIRE AT&T park baseball stadium to ask the mother of his child to marry him. And, of course, the moment was captured on camera for Kim’s reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. No biggie, then.
Come to think of it though, Kanye loves to makes announcements in stadiums – it’s the same way he chose to reveal the news that he and Kim were expecting baby North, who was born in June.
It’s thought that Kanye asked Kim’s mum, Kris Jenner, for her daughter’s hand in marriage. Once he had got down on one knee and asked his beloved the magic question, Kim’s nearest and dearest poured out from dugouts in the stadium, while fireworks exploded in the sky. Well, we suppose it was never going to be a quiet affair for these two.
Then, of course, there’s the ring. Safe to say Kanye definitely wasn’t on a budget when he went shopping for Kim‘s sparkler. The singer presented Kim with a blinding 15-carat diamond ring from celebrity jeweller Lorraine Schwartz. That’s one serious birthday gift. Congrats, guys!
