Did Kanye put a ring on it?

24 June 2013, 11:18

Los Angeles - Kanye West is reportedly engaged to Kim Kardashian.

The rapper is said to have proposed to the reality TV star just days after she gave birth to their first child.

Although the 36-year-old rapper didn't have an engagement ring, he did give his fiancee a R7.8m rare black and tiger-stripe diamond ring as a push present to commemorate daughter North's birth and the couple are apparently planning a September wedding in Paris.

Push present

An insider told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Kanye wasted no money in making sure Kim had the best of everything while she's in hospital.

"He has spent half a million (pounds) on a ring as a push present and had it designed months ago in preparation.

"He's even more in love with her now than ever and they can't wait to get married."

It is reported Kanye spared no expense while taking care of the new mother during her pregnancy, including a personal labour coach costing more than £3 000 a day.

The couple also rented three deluxe suites - which cost over £2 500 per night each - which had three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a personal chef.
