Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Engaged After Romantic San Francisco Proposal [PHOTOS]
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are officially engaged after West proposed Monday night at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
West rented out the ballpark, home of the San Francisco Giants, and proposed to Kim on the field with a 50-piece orchestra, that played a version of West's song "Knock You Down," and a message on the jumbotron that read “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”
The big proposal, which took place on Kim’s 33rd birthday, also featured fireworks and Roman candles, according to E! News.
West got down on one knee and proposed with a 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring. Kim’s good friend Brittny Gastineau posted a photo of the ring on her Instagram account Tuesday, giving fans their first glimpse at the jewelry.
West also brought in close family and friends of the couple to witness the big moment, and they reportedly rushed the couple after Kim said yes. Kourtney Kardashian, Kim’s older sister, posted a photo of the proposal on Instagram.
And Kim’s close friend, Jonathan Cheban, who makes frequent appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, also posted a photo on Instagram from the big event, writing that it was a “Grand Slam type of night!”
Sister Khloé Kardashian-Odom took to Twitter to express her joy for the happy couple, writing that she was shedding “Tears of JOY!”

“A match made in heaven! I am so happy for both of my kids, Kim and Kanye,” mother Kris Jenner told E! News of the engagement.
Kim and West have been dating publicly for over a year and welcomed their first child, daughter North West, over the summer.
“We’ve been friends for, like, six or seven years. So, it’s very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, respects you, understands, has gone through similar things… I feel like I’m at a really happy, good space,” Kim told Oprah in 2012 on a special Kardashian episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter.
“I don’t know why it took us so long for us to get together, but I think I needed to go through all my experiences… I think we’ve always had an attraction for each other, but we’ve always just been in other relationships or it just wasn’t the right timing… And one day, I don’t know, it kind of just happened,” Kim revealed to Oprah.
Kim’s romantic relationship with West began shortly after her 72-day marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries, which all played out on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. West has appeared a few times on the reality show, but the couple has been very vocal about their desire not to play out their relationship in front of the cameras, so it seems doubtful that the world will get another look at a big Kim Kardashian wedding.
This will be Kim’s third wedding and West’s first marriage.
