Someone had to make use of AT&T Park this October, and that someone was Kanye West.
Natalie Finn of E! Online is reporting that the hip-hop star rented out the San Francisco ballpark to celebrate Kim Kardashian’s 33rd birthday Monday night and ended up popping the question in front of friends and family.
In true showman style, West’s proposal to Kardashian was a lavish, multi-part event involving an orchestra, fireworks and a monstrous diamond ring.
Paul Sacca of Next Impulse Sports reports that a large orchestra was on hand and played Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” and “Knock You Down”—a collaboration tune by Kanye, Keri Hilson and Ne-Yo.
Yes, Mr. West played his own music at his proposal. He also had the words “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” shown on the park’s Jumbotron, because it’s not a Kanye message if it’s not in all caps.
The proposal didn’t go full-Kanye, however, until Kim answered “Yes,” at which point salvos of fireworks began shooting into the sky.
After the proposal, West and his bride-to-be were joined by friends and family, who had been hiding in the dugouts.
The proposal was sealed with a gigantic, 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring, via @EyeOnGlam (h/t Rachel Maresca and Sean Keane of the New York Daily News).
For those who haven’t been Keeping up With the Kardashians, Kanye and Kim have been dating for 18 months and have been skirting marriage rumors for some time now.
This will be Kim's third wedding (her prior husbands include music producer Damon Thomas and NBA forward Kris Humphries).
Her engagement to Kanye comes four months after the two welcomed their baby, North, into the world.
There you have it, Giants fans. The Kanye West/Kim Kardashian marriage began at your home field. Celebrate or scour your body as you see fit.
"We want prenup."
