Kim Kardashian’s surprise engagement

Thursday May 26, 2011

Kim Kardashian has become engaged after her basketball star boyfriend surprised her with a romantic proposal.

The 30-year-old reality TV star told People magazine of her shock and delight when she walked into her bedroom last week to find boyfriend of six months, New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries, waiting on bended knee with "will you marry me?" presented in red rose petals.

Kris, 26, had a 20.5-carat diamond ring specially designed for his future bride, saying: "I just knew I wanted it to be big."

He then got Kim's mother to help him plan an intimate family party for later in the evening.

Kim revealed: "Kris really didn't want a big celebration, but he had jokingly told my mom he'd be fine if there were mini-horses there.

Later that night at the party, my mom brought out two mini-horses, covered in glitter, for us! It was hysterical!"
