More on the story...
UPDATE: Here are some more details on the engagement of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. According to TMZ, a member of the orchestra noted that they were paid 4 times what they usually make for a gig like this. Orchestra members made up to $1000 for the performance. A contractor reached out to a bunch of musicians in the area two days before the event, and even though they did not sign non-disclosure agreements, they kept the news silent.
Also, multiple cameras were rolling during Kanye's proposal, which means it will likely end up on the Kardashian's reality show. Kanye was said to be "very hands on" in regards to planning the event.
ORIGINAL: TMZ reports that Kanye West has officially asked Kim Kardashian to marry him with a huge birthday surprise.
West flew Kardashian to San Francisco, blindfolded her and took her to the San Francisco Giants stadium AT&T Park, which he rented out for the occasion. He had a full orchestra playing Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful", which is one of her favorite songs. He then dropped down to one knee in the middle of the field and proposed with a 15 carat diamond ring.
Obviously, Kardashian said yes. Her family and friends then appeared on the field to celebrate. This comes four months after their daughter North was born and eighteen months after they went public with their relationship. This will be Kardashian's third marriage and West's first.
The price for renting out AT&T Park is $35,000, so Kanye spared no expense.
