Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are engaged.

West proposed to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star in front of their family and friends at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Monday, E! News reported.

The rapper reportedly rented out the entire stadium to make his dramatic proposal on Kardashian's 33rd birthday and popped the question with a 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring.

"A match made in heaven!" Kardashian's mom Kris Jenner told E! News of the couple, who have a four-month-old daughter named North "Nori" West together.

"I am so happy for both of my kids, Kim and Kanye."

West hired an orchestra to play for Kardashian in the stadium, and according to People, a large screen simultaneously flashed the words "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!!"

Shortly afterward, hairstylist Clyde Haygood posted a photo of Kardashian showing off her new engagement ring on his Instagram account.

"Guess what just happened!!!!" he wrote.

This will be the first marriage for West and the third for Kardashian, who had divorced music producer Damon Thomas in 2004 and NBA basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011.

Conflicting reports have circulated for months in regards to whether West and Kardashian would ever tie the knot.

A source close to the rapper just recently told RadarOnline that West had been telling friends he'd never marry Kardashian

"He has no need or desire to make their relationship official in the eyes of the law," the source told the website.

"Kanye prefers the idea of them as 'partners.' He sees marriage as outdated and he's all about embracing the modern and the new. He doesn't feel like he has to marry Kim just because they have a daughter together."

In August, sources told Us Weekly that Kardashian and West were planning a "secret" possible "destination wedding," as West wanted their big day to be "over the top" since he's never gotten married before.

"They've been discussing marriage for a while," a source told Us at the time. "A wedding is in the works."

Added a West friend, "He wants to get married more than she does!" 

Kardashian told Ryan Seacrest during an E! News television special in late April that she believed she would get married again.

"I found what I really wanted. So I think I definitely do want that," Kardashian said of exchanging vows with West shortly after she had finally reached a divorce settlement with Humphries following months of court proceedings and legal battles over their 72-day marriage.

A source also told Us in January that West was "dying to propose" to his then-pregnant girlfriend. However, the fact Kardashian was still legally married to Humphries at the time prevented the rapper from popping the question.
