Details of Kim Kardashian’s engagement to Kris Humphries and her $2 million ring
Kim Kardashian is engaged! The reality TV star, 30, and her boyfriend of six months, NBA player Kris Humphries, 26, have been engaged since May 18 but the family decided to keep it all a big Kardashian secret until the story was outed by People magazine in the exclusive cover story deal.
So, Kris proposed with a HUGE ring – a custom-designed Lorrain Schwartz diamond engagement ring featuring “a 16.5 carat emerald cut center stone flanked by two 2-carat trapezoids … for a grand total of 20.5 carats,” according to People. The source also says that all the stones are the highest clarity and color.
I just knew I wanted it to be big,” Kris Humphries told the mag.
When Kim’s sisters were finally allowed to share their joy with fans on Twitter, Khloe wrote about the ring saying she would “die for it”:
Kim’s ring gave birth to my ring! LOL but my ring is perfection! It’s from my Lammy.”
As to the engagement, nobody in the family knew about it but Kim’s mom Kris Jenner. She even helped Kris choose the ring for Kim. Kris Jenner said:
He came to Bruce and myself and asked us for Kim’s hand in marriage, and it was really just so cute the way that he wanted to surprise her.”
Humphries proposed in Kim’s bedroom with “Will You Marry Me?” written in rose petals. Kim Kardashian said it was a total surprise.
I didn’t expect this at all. I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now,” she said recalling the celebration that followed: “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!”
Kim’s sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian said they were all waiting for Kim in the dining room and had no idea their sister was just saying “yes” in those very moments:
We were all sitting there like, ‘Kim is so late for dinner and we’re starving.’ And we’re like, ‘Where the hell is Kim?’ Then she walked in, and we’re like, ‘Oh my God!’ But we just thought we were going to a family dinner,” Khloe Kardashian said at the press conference.
As it turned out Kim’s brother Brody Jenner was the last family member to learn the news, and he learnt it from Twitter.
My sister is engaged? Hahaha I had no idea!!.. Crazy being in such a big family.. Congrats @Kimkardashian love you. Let’s celebrate soon,” he said in his message.
His other sisters Khloe and Kourtney also took to their websites and Twitter pages to share the happy news with their fans.
Kourtney Kardashian tweeted:

Khloe Kardashian wrote on her website:
