Kanye West isn’t exactly a traditionalist, but when he proposed to Kim Kardashian on Monday, he popped the question like many others: down on one knee.
There were fireworks, an orchestra, a ring that the rapper designed himself and the Jumbotron read “Pleeease Marry Meeee” as the rapper, 36, surprised his daughter’s mother.
As West popped the question, the reality star held her hands in front of her face and then embraced her boyfriend of 17 months, wrapping her arms around him. Then the couple’s family and friends – including members of the Kardsashian family – raced onto the field to congratulate the happy couple.
In an interview with 99.7 NOW just hours before he proposed on Monday night, West gushed about his “dream girl.”
“She’s the love of my life. She gave me a beautiful daughter,” he said. “She has a beautiful amazing family that is now my family.”
He also shared that his new fiancée is someone he relies on.
