Kim Kardashian got engaged to boyfriend Kanye West, the father of her daughter, North, on Monday, the day she turned 33 and two years after she divorced Kris Humphries following just 72 days of marriage.

Her marriage to Humphries was widely publicized and even suspected by some to be a p.r. stunt, but the world has seen a different side of Kardashian since she started dating "Yeezuz" creator West and had a child with him. The starlet stepped out of the limelight for several months after she had her daughter, causing many to believe she was in “hiding.” West notoriously hates the American paparazzi, but according to TMZ, the hip-hop artist put aside his disdain for exposing personal issues for profit and apparently allowed cameras to capture his proposal to Kardashian.
The news site added there is ample material for the event to appear on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," the family's reality show, but added West, 36, purportedly has the final say on whether that will happen.
