Kim Kardashian debuted her engagement ring on Instagram on Oct. 22. According to the New York Daily News, the 15 carat bauble cost Kanye a pretty penny -- and estimated $8 million -- but Kim is totally worth it. Kim's new engagement ring is four times more expensive than the ring that her ex, Kris Humphries, gave her... but that doesn't mean that her relationship is going to last. There are already bets being placed on Kimye and their marriage longevity -- or lack there of.
"Online bookmaker Paddy Power puts the odds on Kimye’s marriage lasting less than two years at 2-1. That might be due to the fact her first marriage, to record producer Damon Thomas, lasted four years, and her second, to former Brooklyn Net Kris Humphries, wrapped up in a mere 72 days," New York Daily News reports.
Kim Kardashian got an engagement ring just four months after giving birth to the couple's first child, North. Many knew that it was only a matter of time before Kanye proposed and Kim was undoubtedly going to say "yes." While her previous marriages didn't work out, Kim has always stayed positive and she has always hoped that her "happy ever after" would come. Maybe this time it will.
"She was so beautiful, and people gasped when he got down on one knee. I believe Kanye is a genius, I do. He got all these high-profile people to San Francisco, to hotels and moved them all around without anyone tweeting sightings. We were all sworn to radio silence," said Joe Francis ("Girls Gone Wild") who was in attendance.
