UPDATES!: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are ENGAGED!


Kanye West has reportedly proposed to Kim Kardashian and she said "yes," according to E! Online.

He is said to have proposed to her in front of family and friends at the AT&T Park in San Francisco, where he rented out the stadium just for the occasion, according to E! Online.

The proposal occurred in the late hours of Kim's 33rd birthday on Oct. 21. Her now husband-to-be is scheduled to perform in San Jose for the Yeezus tour later today (Oct. 22).

In the earlier hours of Oct. 21, Kanye presented at the Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills, making it a surprise to see him appear in San Francisco mere hours later, according to E! Online.

But, we are talking about Kim and Kanye (notably dubbed "Kimye"), one of the most surprising couples of the past few years. It was only last December that Kanye suddenly announced to a crowd of fans that Kim was expecting. She, of course, gave birth to a girl named North (nicknamed Nori) on June 15.

After "hiding away" for a few months, Kim made her first public appearance after giving birth on a recording on mother Kris Jenner's talk show in August, of which Kanye was a guest. On the show, he gushed about his love for Kim and the baby and revealed the first photo of North the world had ever seen.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

UPDATE: E! Online has reported that Kanye asked Kim's mom, Kris, for permission before popping the question. The outlet also reported that the engagement ring is a 15-carat diamond by Lorraine Schwartz.

Kanye popped the question by projecting the words "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" on the jumbo screen at AT&T Park.

Aside from a 50-piece orchestra--which played Lana Del Rey's "Young & Beautiful" and Keri Hilson, Ne-Yo and Kanye's "Knock You Down," Kim and Kanye were alone in the stadium until the moment she said "yes." Afterwards, a few close family members and friends ran out of the dugouts to congratulate the couple.

Say it with me: Awwwwwwwwwwww!

UPDATE #2: So, you've been waiting to see the engagement ring, right? Here it is!

The photo was posted on Kim's best friend's, Brittny Gastineau, Instagram account earlier today. The caption: "Congratulations to @kimkardashian & #Kanyewest on this magical night," Gastineau said.

She was present at the big reveal last night.

Once again, say it with me: Awwwwwwwwwwww!

UPDATE #3: Kim Kardashian, herself, just posted a picture on Instagram of her flaunting her ring in front of the jumbo screen where Kanye popped the question. She also posted the photo on her official blog.

Say it with me for the third time: Awwwwwwwwwwww! 

UPDATE #4: Kim is speaking out following the proposal. Of the big event, she said, "Last night was truly magical!!! I am the luckiest girl in the world," she said to E! News.

"I get to marry my best friend."

I think we can stop saying "aw" now, but just say it with me one more time: Awwwwwwwwwwww!

UPDATE #5: E! News has obtained exclusive footage of Kanye's proposal to Kim. Watch it HERE.

How romantic!

**Correction: An earlier version of the article stated that Kim Kardashian's birthday was on Oct. 22. Her actual birthday was on Oct. 21.
