UPDATE: Kim revealed to E! News that she intends to take Kanye's last name, becoming Kim Kardashian West upon marriage. Her sister Khloe took up her husband Lamar Odom's name in the same manner.
-------------------------(end of update...original story published October 22) -------------------------
New mom and birthday girl Kim Kardashian got a huge surprise when her boyfriend and baby's daddy Kanye West popped the question on Monday, Oct. 21.
The 36-year-old rapper asked for Kim's hand in marriage in front of her family and close friends at San Francisco's AT&T Park, E! News reports. Thanks to those in attendance, Twitter erupted with the first pics of the reality star's HUGE engagement ring (see below).
Kanye rented out the entire stadium to propose to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star on her 33rd birthday. Earlier in the evening, the Yeezus rapper had made an appearance at the Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills, and while he made reference to commuting between Los Angeles and San Francisco, he never mentioned that he was about to propose.
Momager Kris Jenner revealed to E! that the rapper did in fact ask her first for her daughter's hand in marriage. "A match made in heaven!" Jenner said of the couple. "I am so happy for both of my kids, Kim and Kanye."
Kim tweeted and Instagrammed following her engagement night, writing: "YES!!!"
"[Marriage] is something I know that we both want in our future, but I don't have this sense of urgency about it," Kim told the Feb. 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. "I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa, you know? It just feels like this is it for me."
Kanye and his bride-to-be first went public with their relationship in 2012, and four months ago Kim gave birth to their first daughter North West. This will be the third marriage for Kim, who officially divorced NBA pro Kris Humphries earlier this year and was married to Damon Thomas until 2004. This will be Kanye's first marriage.
Leave a congratulatory message for the newly engaged couple, and check out some proposal pics (ring included):
