It looks like Kanye West wanted to make his “joy” official, because he and Kim Kardashian are finally engaged.
The rapper proposed to his longtime girlfriend and mother of daughter North West Monday evening in San Francisco. In proper Yeezus style, Kanye popped the question in the middle of a rented out AT&T Park with musicians playing in the field and the couple’s friends and family waiting anxiously in the dugouts. Could Kim have asked for a better 33rd birthday?
While she’s shot down rumors of impending nuptials in the past, telling Cosmopolitan in February of this year that marriage ”is something I know that we both want in our future, but I don’t have this sense of urgency about it,” we aren’t surprised there’s been a change of heart. It’s clear the couple is madly in love.
Kanye has been especially open about these feelings on a public level, speaking about his newfound happiness with Kim on media outlets like his soon to be mother-in-law Kris Jenner‘s talk show and most recently on Jimmy Kimmel. This weekend, the artist even kicked off his Yeezus tour in a t-shirt featuring a nude graphic of Kim, which he showed off backstage in Seattle.
While Kim’s ex, Kris Humphries, just sold her former engagement ring for $749,000, we have a feeling whatever Kanye got her will be more than an acceptable replacement. Kimye together forever? We hope so!
