AFTER nine years of pursuing reality star Kim Kardashian, rapper Kanye West has finally got his girl.
The 36-year-old multi-talented star hired out an entire baseball stadium to propose to his baby momma on Monday, something that she was wooed by because it was her 33rd birthday.
She gushed to E! on Tuesday saying she is “the luckiest girl in the world,” her first statement since her beau popped the questioned.
“Last night was truly magical!!! I am the luckiest girl in the world. I get to marry my best friend!”
The rapper hired out the AT&T Park in San Francisco to propose to the mother of his child in front of friends and family. He serenaded her with a 50 piece orchestra which struck up the romantic ballad Young And Beautiful from film The Great Gatsby by songstress Lana Del Rey, followed by his own hit with Keri Hilson and Ne-Yo, Knock You Down.
After Kim said “YES”, Kanye slipped a 15 carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring, which New York Times is worth over R78-million ($8million), onto her finger and fireworks exploded in the sky as the rest of her family ran out of the dugouts.
This will be the third time the Kardashian mom will walk down the isle after being married at the tender age of 20 to when she eloped with music producer Damon Thomas; she eventually divorced him after four years of marriage in 2004. Then in 2011, she wed NBA player Kris Humphries after a short time of dating, Humphries proposed at home with a R46-million ($4,8million) and the two had a mere 90-day engagement. But their marriage was even shorter, lasting only 72 days.
Soon after that break-up news of Kardashian dating West made headlines and just a year later they announced they were expecting their first child. And their baby girl North West was born this year.
