Yesterday was Kim’s 33rd birthday and what kind of birthday party do you give your girlfriend and the mother of your child? You rent out the entire AT&T Park in San Francisco for the occasion. What made this extra special; Kanye West was at the Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills, acting as a presenter and then took a quick flight to be with the birthday girl where the surprises just continued.
It’s obvious when a man truly loves a woman and with Kanye it was “love at first sight”.
Since going public with their relationship in 2012 (when Kim was still “technically still married to Kris Humphries; finally ending their marriage in June 2013), the happy couple have been inseparable and are now the proud parents to 4-month-old daughter North (Nori) West.
According to sources, Kanye got down on one knee as the stadium’s jumbo screen flashed the message ‘PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!’, while in the background a 50-piece orchestra played Lana Del Rey’s Young and Beautiful, followed by Keri Hilson, Ne-Yo and Kanye’s Knock You Down.
Kim’s ring is apparently a flawless 15-carat diamond ring designed by celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz – who also designed Beyonce’s 18-carat stunner.
Of course the evening ended with yet more sparklers – better known as a huge display of fireworks and Roman candles. What were you expecting – cake?
Normally, I don’t report on celebrity engagements or marriages but I loved that Kim stated in the February 2013 issue of Cosmpolitan. "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."
That’s what we all want…someone who takes the time to understand you. Things aren’t always easy, but if you think you try (yet can’t describe how you try) and then give up, cheat or walk away…you’re not ready for the full-time job or commitment that marriage is. Kanye proved that he is willing to walk the walk and stay there for the long haul.
Here’s wishing Kim, Kanye and Nori the happily-ever-after that they deserve.
