Kim Kardashian engaged to boyfriend Kanye West
NEW YORK — Marriage is coming after the baby carriage for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Kardashian’s publicist, Ina Treciokas, confirmed Tuesday that the couple are engaged.
E! News first reported that West proposed to Kardashian on Monday — her 33rd birthday — in front of family and friends at the AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants.
Kardashian gave birth to the couple’s first child, daughter North West, in June.
A photo posted on Instagram shows a screen at the stadium that reads “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” — in typical West font — above a black-clad orchestra. Another shows Kardashian showing off a diamond ring with a smiling West behind her.
The Kardashian clan has a series of reality shows on E!, and, after initially saying it didn’t have cameras at the stadium, the network said late Tuesday it did have cameras there to capture the moment.
Khloe Kardashian seemed to celebrate on Twitter when she wrote: “Tears of JOY!!!!!!! Wow!!!!!!” She also tweeted: “Wow!!!!! Am I dreaming??!?!” Kimye were quiet on Twitter.
Kardashian was previously married to NBA player Kris Humphries. Their divorce was finalized in June after they were married for 72 days in 2011. Her first marriage was to music producer Damon Thomas in 2000.
West is currently on a tour with Kendrick Lamar. “The Yeezus Tour” will visit the SAP Center in San Jose on Tuesday night.
Earlier Monday, he attended the Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills, presenting Steve McQueen with the Hollywood Breakout Director Award.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — Oprah Winfrey has paid a visit to two of the graduates from the celebrity’s school in South Africa who are enrolled at a private college in upstate New York.
A spokeswoman for OWN, Winfrey’s cable channel, says Tuesday that the former daytime talk-show queen was at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs on Monday to meet with two graduates from Winfrey’s Leadership Academy for Girls. The academy, a boarding school for underprivileged South African girls, opened in 2007.
The two young women are studying at Skidmore, a liberal arts school located 165 miles north of New York City.
Christel MacLean, co-owner of The Crown Grill, tells local media outlets that Winfrey and the two students had dinner at the restaurant Monday night in a private back room.
