Kanye West has already all but proposed to Kim Kardashian in song, but now the two have made their engagement official. “White Dress,” a song from RZA’s 2012 film The Man With the Iron Fists that’s as goopy and inviting as Yeezus can be abrasive and harsh, described “the type of girl that probably deserve a new last name” and implied imagining a wedding on first sight. After much speculation, the couple is set to tie the knot for real.
As E! Online and Us Weekly report, citing their usual unnamed sources, ‘Ye surprised the mother of their child, North West, on October 21 with a proposal at San Francisco’s AT&T Park, home of the Giants baseball team. TMZ‘s sources say West blindfolded Kardashian before bringing her to the stadium, where a full orchestra was on hand to perform Lana Del Rey’s The Great Gatsby ballad “Young and Beautiful,” which Kardashian reportedly adores. Kardashian’s family and friends were on hand, and West projected “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” onto the stadium screen for all to see. (Label Def Jam Recordings has already congratulated the couple.)
West and Kardashian welcomed their baby on June 15 of this year. West will be getting married for the first time, while Kardashian will be getting married for the third time. West’s Yeezus tour comes to San Jose, California, tonight (October 22). No details yet on the wedding plans.
