Engaged: Kim Kardashian, 33, to Kanye West, 36, reports E! Online, otherwise known as the Kardashian family outlet. Thought the publicity-loving couple was already engaged? Sure you did – we all did. But the couple, parents to daughter North West, just made official Monday night. The proposal was classic understated Kanye: Rent out a baseball stadium, hire a 50-piece orchestra and display “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” on the Jumbotron. The whole Kardashian crew was on hand to celebrate at AT&T Park in San Francisco — could this possibly be filmed for the show? Anyway, this will be the third marriage for her, first for him: West broke up with his fiance, designer Alexis Phifer, in 2008. Kardashian was married to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 through 2004; and famously split from NBA star Kris Humphries nearly two years ago after 72 days and a two-night, four-hour wedding special on E! Her divorce was finalized this past summer — and 20-carat engagement ring auctioned off last week. Hmm, wonder if the anonymous buyer was Kanye? (UPDATE: Guess not. The ring below is only 15 carats.)
