We hope the third time's the charm for Kim Kardashian, who accepted boyfriend Kanye West's proposal and celebrated a birthday all in one day! The big engagement news follows a slew of significant life events for the Kardashian clan including the birth of Kim and Kanye's first babe, North West, and reports that Kris and Bruce Jenner are headed for divorce.
The proposal was, of course, a Yeezy-sponsored spectacular. The rapper flexed his larger-than-life muscles to rent out AT&T Park in San Francisco for all of their friends and family to join in on the joyous occasion. This isn't the first time Kanye has used a stadium to make an important Kimye announcement—the Yeezus star did, after all, announce Kim was pregnant while performing in Atlantic City.
We all knew it was only a matter of time until the duo got engaged. Kim did hint in the February 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan that she foresaw marital bliss with her longtime love somewhere in the near future. "[Marriage] is something I know that we both want in our future, but I don't have this sense of urgency about it," Kardashian said. "I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa, you know? It just feels like this is it for me."
The proposal comes just in time to save Keeping Up With the Kardashian ratings. The popular E! reality show apparently suffered it's lowest ratings earlier this month (1.7 million people tuned in as opposed to their regular 3.6 mil), RadarOnline.com reported. We're sure that mama Kris, who has used Kim and Kanye to boost her own talk show's ratings, will milk this engagement—and wedding—for all it's worth.
Congrats Kim and Kanye! We can't wait to see the ring (which, we're sure, will be record-breakingly huge), not to mention Kim's over-the-top wedding dress. Maybe Kim's favorite designer, Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy, will design something special? Only time will tell!
