Kim Kardashian is now a wife-to-be after her rapper boyfriend Kanye West staged a huge public proposal in front of family and friends at the AT&T Park in San Francisco.
33-year-old reality TV star Kim, who welcomed her first daughter North into the world on June 15, was granted the birthday gift of a lifetime when Kanye rented out the famous sports stadium on her birthday and presented Kim with a 15-carat diamond ring by celebrity jeweller Lorraine Schwart to a backdrop of exploding fireworks.
A sign above the playing field then reportedly flashed with the message, "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!! (sic)". Top marks for effort! The newly-engaged pair are now said to be smitten and planning a blow-out engagement party in Las Vegas this weekend to toast their happy news.
This will be the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star's third engagement after two failed marriages to music producer Damon Thomas and basketball pro Kris Humphries.
But with her and Kanye's huge combined fame and fortune, that whopping great big engagement rock and their designer-clad daughter Nori filling up the headlines, these two look set to rival Beyoncé and Jay and even the Beckhams as one of the hottest new power couples in showbiz.
Let's hope it's third time lucky for Ms. Kardashian...
