Talk about pulling out all the stops! Video has emerged of Kanye West’s over-the-top surprise birthday proposal to Kim Kardashian — including the actual moment the Yeezus rapper got down on bended knee to ask the mother of his daughter North for her hand in marriage!
In the MixBit video clip — shot by YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley — the “Blood On the Leaves” singer is seen at a distance proposing to Kardashian in the middle of the AT&T Park in San Francisco, Calif. — in pitch darkness as an orchestra plays classical music. In the middle of the proposal, the stadium lights go on as the reality star is seen holding her hands to her face and eventually going in for a sweet kiss and embrace.
Mid-kiss, family and friends of the future bride and groom are heard cheering and then quickly emerging from dugouts to approach the couple with their congrats — with older sister Kourtney Kardashian leading the pack in red.
In a mix of edited clips, the crowd is also spotted sipping on champagne, Kim and Kanye singing, fittingly, to West’s song “All of the Lights,” mom Kris Jenner bopping up and down to the music and Khloe Kardashian smiling big. Lorraine Schwarz —- who designed the stunning (and massive!) engagement ring with West —- also gives a toast to the huge crowd to celebrate both the new engagement and the first-time mom’s 33rd birthday.
“I’m very excited, congratulations! Happy Birthday, what an incredible birthday present,” Schwartz says to Kardashian. “I’m thrilled Kanye’s in your life and vice versa.”
Kardashian and West, 36, began dating in April 2012 and welcomed their first child — baby girl North — on June 15 of this year. This will be the first marriage for West and the third for Kardashian, who finalized her divorce from NBA player, Kris Humphries, on June 4. She divorced music producer Damon Thomas in 2003.
