Kim Kardashian Is Engaged! Check Out Her Giant Engagement Ring

kim-kardashian-engagement-ring

Kim Kardashian is engaged! Kanye West proposed last night, which was her 33rd birthday, and he did it in the most Kanye way possible.

E! News says he rented out San Francisco’s AT&T Park, and he actually asked Kris Jenner for her daughter’s hand in marriage before popping the question.

Having secured the go-ahead from the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch, he got down on one knee and proposed to Kim with a flawless 15-carat diamond ring by celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.

Aiding in his effort was the field’s jumbo screen, which flashed the sign, “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”

There was a 50-piece orchestra that played Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful,” and there was a fireworks display over San Francisco.

When she said yes, her family and some close friends came running out from the dugout, where they’d been hiding.

We were a bit surprised by the ring, which at 15 carats is smaller than the $2 million Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring Kris Humphries gave Kim, which had a 16-carat center stone and totaled 20.5 carats overall.

We would have expected Kanye to go bigger just for the sake of going bigger, but we like this one better. It’s still comically huge, but just a smidge less ridiculous than the other one.

Now onto the important stuff: What do you think the dress will be like? Our neighborhood bookies are giving Givenchy as the favorite, but maybe Kanye will go crazy and decide to design the wedding gown himself.

    I feel a strange kinship with Kanye because of all those eeeeeeeees he used on the Jumbotron.

      Yeah the “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” is actually adorable.

    This actually surprised me this morning when I read about it on Twitter.

    I’m sort of distressed by how dead-behind-the-eyes Kim looks in that picture.
