Kanye West Cancels Vancouver Concert to Propose to Kim Kardashian
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have had their lives changed tremendously since becoming happy parents to adorable baby girl North West and now it appears that life may be changing even more now for the high-profile couple. Despite false reports suggesting that Kanye had no desire to marry Kim (and Wendy Williams’ bold admission that Kim would only be his baby mama), it appears the rapper clearly had other plans. Late last night, it was confirmed by Kardashian affiliate E! News that Kanye popped the question and the couple is now officially engaged. And all of this went down yesterday, on Kim’s 33rd birthday.
According to the website, Kanye popped the question in style and actually rented out the San Francisco AT&T Park which is home to the San Francisco Giants. A 50 piece orchestra played Lana Del Rey’s track “Young and Beautiful,” and then of course to make it right, they then played Keri Hilson’s song “Knock You Down” which notoriously featured Kanye West and Ne-Yo.
He even got the jumbo screen to read “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” and the place was lit with roman candles and fireworks.
Kim of course said yes, and that’s when all of her close family members and friends ran out of one of the dugouts. It didn’t take long for photos of the special occasion to hit Twitter and Instagram. A publicist even attended the event and she posted the video to her own Instagram page. Check it all out below (Photo Credit: Instagram):
Interestingly enough, Kanye cancelled his Vancouver show which was scheduled the same night and we’re hearing it’s because he wanted to make sure everything went perfect. It’s also being reported that he also needed some time to get Kris Jenner’s approval just hours before.
This will be Kim’s third marriage and Kanye’s first. Congrats to Kim and Kanye.
In other news, we have to wonder what Wendy Williams is thinking. She did say she would eat crow if Kanye and Kim ever got married. While she won’t eat crow just yet because it hasn’t happened, it sure does look like these two will be heading down the aisle soon to us and Wendy will have to eat her words.
