Kanye West Proposes to Kim Kardashian on KUWTK — WATCH VIDEOS HERE!
The episode, filmed around Kim’s 33rd birthday in October, revolved around the family traveling to San Francisco for the rapper’s secret b-day plans, only knowing that it was a black-tie event and having no idea he planned on dropping to one knee.
Kim herself knew even less, believing she and her baby daddy were celebrating with a typical birthday dinner, unaware of the extravaganza he had planned for her closest family and friends.
With just a four-day warning, mom Kris Jenner helped Kanye orchestrate the gathering, and imposed a social media “lockdown,” refusing to divulge any details to the rest of the clan and making sure nothing leaked out to the media.
As the family was at a hotel getting ready, Kim revealed she wasn’t feeling well and didn’t want to leave Los Angeles. But the Kardashians pressed on, and were shocked when they arrived at AT&T Park to discover Kanye had rented out the entire baseball stadium.
The family was instructed to hide in the dugouts for the mysterious event, as Kim and Kanye were finally in route, soon being driven onto the field as the attendees eagerly awaited “something major.”
“She’s just gonna die when she knows we’ll all here,” said Kourtney Kardashian to the camera, with Khloe whispering in the dark, “This is the best thing I’ve seen in my life.”
Kim, who had been blindfolded, was shocked to see a huge orchestra and lights display awaiting her — and then West began his proposal in earnest.
“I just want to know,” he said to Kim before dropping down on bended knee.
“You want to know what?” asked Kim.
“If you’ll marry me,” replied West.
“Of course,” said Kim, slipping on the massive diamond engagement ring before indulging in a passionate kiss.
“It’s like the perfect size on my hand,” the bride-to-be gushed about her “huge” Lorraine Schwartz ring, later telling the camera, “It’s really just the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe I’m engaged.”
The event turned into a big party with pounding music and dancing, followed by moving speeches from Kris, who said Kanye has “felt like a son for a very long time,” and Khloe, who encouraged the two to have “more babies!”
Calling the night “the surprise of a lifetime,” the lovebirds continued the engagement celebrations the next night at Kanye’s concert in Las Vegas.
“I wanted one big last hurrah with the whole family before I leave with the baby to join him on tour,” Kim explained to the camera.
On a sadder note, it was revealed that Scott Disick was absent from the engagement party, because his mom Bonnie was in the ICU after her liver shut down, shortly before her eventual death in November.
Scott explained to the camera that his dad, who ended up dying two months after his mother, had often been ill, and he was used to his mom being the healthy one.
“It’s a really huge shocker to me to find out that my mom is sick,” he said, revealing she needed a liver transplant and had largely lost her ability to communicate.
Scott went to New York alone, declining Kourtney’s offer to join him, and tried to encourage his father Jeff to eat better in light of having a heart attack.
“Seeing my mom like this is probably the worst thing I’ve ever seen and seeing my dad neglect his blood sugars and his diabetes,” he said. “Life is short… All I want is to see him take better care of himself.”
Scott struggled to deal with his dad’s strong emotions, and his own, as his mom’s health worsened due to a seizure. The only child later told Kourtney that his mom was now on dialysis and having her brain checked, with the doctor unable to offer any hope, and worried about getting his dad “back under control.”
Back in Los Angeles, Kourtney decided to pack her bags so she could join Scott at a moment’s notice, despite his reluctance, and found out during a lunch outing that her longtime boyfriend had started getting prepared for a possible funeral.
“It’s hard to hear Bonnie’s in this state of limbo. She’s such a great grandmother,” Kourtney said to the camera, shedding tears during her phone call with Scott.
But Kourtney was later stunned when Scott showed up at the concert, a secret plan executed with Khloe’s help, to give him a “breather” and a “surprise” for Kourtney.
“I know that he needs me now more than ever,” said Kourtney, who planned to return to New York with him the next day.
The next day, Bonnie passed away with the couple by her side. A card on the screen said Scott asked viewers to pray for her.
Kim told the camera, “We have had some really high highs and some really low lowswith my mom and Bruce separating, Khloe and Lamar going through a hard time and Scott’s mom being sick.”
The reality star said she’s learned that life gives you hard times and good times, and you have to learn to embrace the happy times.
“I’m honestly just so happy I have Kanye to share my life with and we have our family, and we’re there to support each other no matter what,” she said.
