Kanye West's romantic proposal to fiancee Kim Kardashian was shared with the world on Sunday (16Feb14) as it aired in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The Stronger hitmaker popped the question to the reality TV star on her 33rd birthday in October (13), and footage of the couple's big moment was finally broadcast in America four months later. In the episode, Kardashian's extended family, including her siblings Kourtney, Khloe, and Rob, as well as half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, were told to travel to a baseball stadium in San Francisco, California for a black-tie event with just four days' notice. Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner was the only one who knew of West's plans, and assisted by imposing a "social media lockdown" on her family to help keep the plot secret. Kim, who had been sick the entire day, knew even less than her loved ones, believing she was just going to spend her birthday with West at a romantic dinner. Inside the stadium, the couple's family and friends were told to hide in the dugouts, with Kourtney saying, "She's (Kim's) just gonna die when she knows we'll all here." West escorted his blindfolded bride-to-be to the centre of the field, only to reveal a massive orchestra playing one of her favourite songs, Lana Del Rey's Young and Beautiful. He got down on one knee and said, "I just want to know, If you'll marry me?" as the words "Please Marry Me!!!!" flashed across the big screen. Kim accepted, slipping the diamond ring onto her finger, before going in for a kiss from her new fiance. Their family and friends then ran out to congratulate the couple and they celebrated with Champagne and dancing as Kim showed off her Lorraine Schwartz ring, gushing, "It's like the perfect size on my hand. It's really just the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I can't believe I'm engaged... He outdid himself. It feels like I'm in a dream. It's the surprise of a lifetime." She added, "I'm honestly just so happy I have Kanye to share my life with and we have our family, and we're there to support each other no matter what."
