First comes love, second comes marri… well, actually, second comes baby North, third comes a huge 15-carat ring courtesy of Mr. West.
Yes, that’s right, if you didn’t already know by now Kim and Kanye are engaged!
The news comes just days after Kanye told his Seattle concert audience that he planned to marry her ‘one day.’
And he meant it! The 36-year-old rapper popped the question on Monday, just two days after, on Kim’s 33rd birthday. They have been dating for the past 18 months and recently had their first child together.
Kim took to Instagram Tuesday morning to post a picture of her new bling, alongside the revealing caption: ‘Yes!!!’
Kanye asked permission for her hand in marriage from momager Jenner, before privately renting the entire AT&T Park baseball stadium in San Francisco. He had arranged the words ‘PLEEESE MARRY MEEE!!!’ to flash up on the giant scoreboard whilst a 50 piece orchestra serenaded her.
They played Lana Del Rey’s romantic ballad Young And Beautiful, followed by his own hit Knock You Down, a song which refers to his undying love for the beauty.
Fireworks lit up the sky above after she said yes and she was suprised with her family and friends who poured out of the dugouts to join in the moment.
The 15-carat diamand sparkler is a cushion cut said to of cost well over £1 million.
Co-founder of 77 Diamonds (a specialist diamond jewellers) Tobias Kormind said of the ring:
‘It’s very similar looking to the Emerald cut which [ex-husband] Kris Humphries gave her. I would have presumed that Kanye would have been keen to get her a different shape of ring this time, which is possibly why he chose the Cushion cut.
‘I would estimate that a diamond of this size and quality would be worth well over £1 million; Kim is a very lucky woman!’
The forthcoming nuptials will be Kayne’s first but Kim’s third, after she tied the knot at just 19 to Damon Thomas and not forgetting the infamous collapsed marriage to ex-husband Kris Humphries.
Well, you know what they say, third time’s a charm! Congratulations to the happy couple!
