Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian days after having baby North West with a $500,000 rare black diamond engagement ring that was originally intended as a push present.
Having accepted the proposal, Kardashian and West are engaged, according to The Sun, meaning that North West's parents will be hearing wedding bells soon. West was apparently so impressed by how calmly Kardashian handled the delivery that it pushed him to pop the question. Kardashian delivered the baby girl five weeks early after a health scare forced doctors to induce labor, yet the reality star handled the stressful situation with ease.
"He's even more in love with her now than ever and they can't wait to get married," a source told the British tabloid. West didn't have an engagement ring when he proposed, but did gift his now-fiancée with the black diamond tiger-stripe ring. "He has spent half a million on a ring as a push present and had it designed months ago in preparation," the insider revealed.
"Kanye wasted no money in making sure Kim had the best of everything while she's in the hospital," the source added. Kardashian and West rented three deluxe suites, which east cost $3,000 per night that included three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an assortment of amenities. No luxury was spared as the birthing rooms were outfitted with leather furniture, flat screen TVs, marble bathrooms and even 24/7 personal chefs.
West's fiancée also took advantage of salon services during her stay in the hospital suites, treating herself to blowouts, manicures and pedicures. Yet, despite reports of the lavish living conditions Kardashian enjoyed before and after delivering baby Nori, sources say the reality star was surprisingly sweet.
"The nurses have had nothing but great things to say about Kim. They say Kim has been very sweet and very easy to deal with," an insider said. Sources at the hospital also confirmed reports that West was doting on Kardashian before the impromptu proposal. "Yeah he was there. He's so cute. He doesn't leave the room," the source said. "He's like in love with the baby. It's so cute."
Kardashian, who was previously married to NBA player Kris Humphries for 72 days has been forthcoming in admitting the relationship was a mistake, but insists she has learned from it. "I do think I would get married again," North's mom confessed. "That's what I've always wanted. And just because you think you find it and you realize that's not it, I think I was brave enough to realize that quickly and not waste time," Kardashian explained.
