And now the couple who brought North West into the world earlier this year is betrothed. It all went down at AT&T Park yesterday, while the Chicago Symphony played and the marquee read: Pleeease Marry Meee!!! She obliged, and donned an enormous, $1.6 million, 15-carat diamond. Ms. Kardashian wore Valentino for the occasion, and after saying yes, she was joined by her reality-tv-famed family members, who were hiding out in the dugout.
Why did this go down in San Francisco? Kanye's Yeezus tour comes to San Jose tonight, and yesterday was Kim's 33rd birthday. So renting out the local stadium for $35k makes sense.
Tracy Nguyen of Industry PR recorded the symphony playing.
One King's Lane co-founder Alison Pincus was also on hand to snap some Instagrams.
