SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Kanye West is in the Bay Area as his “Yeezus Tour” makes its way to the SAP Center in San Jose, Tuesday night. But it was AT&T Park in San Francisco that had the all the attention as 36 year-old West celebrated girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s 33rd birthday…with fireworks, a 50-piece orchestra and a 15-carat diamond engagement ring.
For the romantic Monday night, West privately rented out AT&T Park with friends and family in attendance to bear witness as he dropped to one knee and proposed to Kim. According to E! Online, the HD jumbotron flashed “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEEE!!!!” and the orchestra played “Young & Beautiful” by Lana Del Rey followed up by Keri Hilson, Ne-Yo and Kayne’s “Knock You Down.”
Long-time friend to Kim, Jonathan Cheban posted this Instagram from AT&T Park “Grand Slam type of night! Wow.. I’m speechless!!”:
Earlier in the day, Kanye West visited the 99.7 [NOW!] radio studios for a sit down interview with afternoon jock, St. John.
In this exclusive exceprt from St. John’s interview, “Yeezy” opens up about his love for Kim and their daughter North and explains how “Family” is everything. It’s what thrives his passion to keep going and to be successful in the music, entertainment and fashion.
This will be Kardashian’s third marriage. Her first marriage to music producer Damon Thomas ended in 2004. In 2011, Kardashian filed for divorce to second husband of 72 days, basketball star Kris Humphries.
Third time is the charm as Kanye And Kim welcomed their daughter, North on June 15, 2013.
