The moment Kanye West got down on one knee to Kim Kardashian was captured on film by one of the guests at the engagement event.
Kanye rented out the AT&T Park in San Francisco, California for nearly €30,000 to propose to the reality TV star.
The couple’s moment shared with family, friends, the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ film crew, a €45,000 50-piece orchestra and a few select Silicon Valley billionaire guests.
One of these guests was YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley, 36, who posted the video on his new video upload platform MixBit.
The video shows a shocked-looking Kim when Kanye goes down on one knee to ask the question.
The proposal was set to the orchestral soundtrack of Kanye’s hit ‘Knock You Down’ and Lana Del Ray’s ‘Young & Beautiful’ before the words ‘PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!’ flashed up on the scoreboard and the sky filled with fireworks.
Kim has since told E! News she is the “luckiest girl in the whole world”.
“'Last night was truly magical!!! I am the luckiest girl in the world!” she said.
“I get to marry my best friend!”
The star has also been on Instagram to share a few snaps of her multi-million euro 15-carat diamond ring.
The couple have said they will have a "very short" engagement.
Kim and Kanye have been together for 18 months but knew each other as friends long before that. Now they have four-month-old daughter North together, they apparently see no reason to wait for a trip down the aisle.
"Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will not have a long engagement... the engagement will be very short and the wedding will happen quickly," reports TMZ.
Kim has been wed twice before, with her union with basketball star Kris Humphries lasting just 72 days. It was thought she was unsure about having a lavish day this time around, as she was heavily criticised when her marriage to Kris failed after their $10 million wedding.
However, it's now being claimed she and her hip-hop star fiancé want a "blow out" affair. The news comes after RadarOnline suggested the pair may hold multiple ceremonies and parties to celebrate their union.
It is unknown whether Kris's former husband Bruce will walk Kim down the aisle, with sources claiming Kris wants her son and Kim's brother Rob to do the honours.
