Well isn’t that good timing?
Just a few days after one of her ex-husbands finally got rid of her engagement ring and wrapped up that little situation, Kim Kardashian is engaged yet again, this time, of course, to rapper and father of her baby, Kanye West.
The report is that last night, on Kim’s birthday, ‘ye rented out AT&T Park, hired an orchestra to play Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” (as well as his own “Knock You Down,” obv), and had the Jumbotron read his request: “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!!” (People’s got a little video of the orchestra playing with his shouty proposal—so reminiscent of his Twitter, isn’t it?—behind them.)
Why on Earth Kanye didn’t choose a jewelry designer other than Lorraine Schwartz, who designed the last engagement ring Kim wore during her last marriage is beyond me—she must have a lifetime monopoly on all Kimmy rocks—but judging by the Twitter pic above, it at least looks kinda different? I mean once diamonds clear 15 carats, things start to get a little tomato-tomahto.
Ten bucks says that this next wedding will be the polar opposite of her last, and that these two do the whole new secret celebrity wedding-thing when they officially become Kimye. Here’s hoping this one sticks.
