There's just something about having the last name Kardashian that makes you want to marry a basketball player. Media mogul Kim Kardashian, 30, is newly engaged to 26-year-old New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries—soon joining her sister Khloe (married to the L.A. Lakers' Lamar Odom) as a courtside NBA wife. Kris proposed on one knee in front of an arrangement of red rose petals spelling out "Will you marry me?" and a 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring in his hand, People reports. "Kris really didn't want a big celebration, but he had jokingly told my mom he'd be fine if there were mini-horses there," Kim told the magazine. "Later that night at the party, my mom brought out two mini-horses covered in glitter for us! It was hysterical!" Just what every engagement party needs—glitter ponies. —Phillip B. Crook
