Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Are Engaged! Get All the Over-the-Top Details

The rapper put together a lavish marriage proposal that included a 50-piece orchestra and fireworks. Oh, yeah -- and a 15-carat ring! See the pics!

Last night, Kim Kardashian had plans to celebrate her birthday with Kanye West. Little did she know that she'd also be celebrating her engagement! On Monday, Kanye surprised Kim with a marriage proposal at San Francisco's AT&T Park, which he rented out for the occasion. Baby North West's mama said "yes," and is now sporting a 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring.

Maybe we didn't adequately convey how over-the-top this proposal was. Not only did Kanye book the entire stadium, he hired a 50-piece orchestra to serenade Kim with Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" and his own collaboration with Keri Hilson, "Knock You Down." After his message flashed on the stadium screen ("PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!"), fireworks went off. Then, when Kim said yes, her friends and family emerged from their hiding place in the dugouts to congratulate the couple. (E! News reports baby North was not there for the big surprise.)

Khloe Kardashian couldn't contain her excitement, and hinted at the big news on Twitter:

 

 

Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner shared Instagram pics of the sign and orchestra. 

Up until today, we weren't sure that Kim and Kanye were headed toward an engagement. He didn't pop the question during her pregnancy, and they've spent a lot of time apart in the past year. Our cynical side wonders if this proposal is more of a Kris Jenner production than a Kanye production, designed to boost the family's image when two Kardashian family marriages (Khloe and Lamar Odom, and Kris and Bruce Jenner) are on the rocks. But maybe fatherhood really has changed Kanye. Or maybe he was just waiting for the stadium to be available.

Not surprisingly, Kim's mom -- whom Kanye asked for permission to propose -- is over the moon.

"A match made in heaven! I am so happy for both of my kids, Kim and Kanye," Kris Jenner told E! News.

Kim's best friend Rachel Roy was also delighted, and shared her own pic from the night on Instagram:


Is there any chance that Kim will actually make it down the aisle a third time? Gosh, we hope so. With a proposal that big and crazy, we can only imagine what Kanye will plan for the actual wedding!
