Kim Kardashian is engaged. It was the headline that tore through the internet this week when Kardashian surprised fans with the announcement on the cover of PEOPLE magazine on Wednesday.
New fiancé, New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries popped the question just six months after the couple got together after surprising her at home. The Power forward was waiting for Kardashian in her bedroom, on bended knee, with the words “Will You Marry Me” spelled out in rose petals, according to PEOPLE.
“I didn’t expect this at all,” Kardashian, 30, told PEOPLE about the surprise proposal. “I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now.”
Surprised though she may have been, the news was inevitable considering the amount of time Kardashian has spent talking about her desire to get married and her life as a serial dater. However most fans believed it would be her ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush that would pop the question, after having survived three years and at least one breakup in the public eye.
Since their final breakup in 2010, Kardashian briefly dated Dallas Cowboy wide receiver Miles Austin, however the two reportedly broke up by September due to the intense media scrutiny that Kardashian and her family draws.
Notoriously close with her family, Humphries was sure to ask her parents in advance.
“He came to Bruce and myself and asked us for Kim’s hand in marriage,” mother Kris Jenner told PEOPLE, speaking about herself and Kardashian’s Stepfather Bruce Jenner. “And it was really just so cute the way that he wanted to surprise her.”
And despite being incredibly close with her two sisters Khloe and Kourtney, Kardashian was still able to surprise them in turn when the family met for a special dinner thrown my Kris Jenner.
“We had no idea. We were both surprised at the dinner when Kim came out with her big rock and she started waving it in the air,” Kourtney said.
The ‘big rock’ Kourtney was referring to is an over 20 carat, custom designed diamond engagement ring Humphries picked out himself, reportedly worth around $2 million.
“I just knew I wanted it to be big,” Humphries told PEOPLE.
No word on the plans for the wedding yet, which we can safely assume it will be a televised event, but certain details have already been decided.
“I would assume that we would both be maids of honor,” Khloe told People. “We’re assuming, because otherwise there would be a war,” Kourtney added.
If we would have to recommend one of our engagement rings, our best bet would have been the Paradiso-3007P but we would have to really build up that carat weight to come close to 20.5 carats.
