Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are engaged to be married, a source tells US Weekly. The rapper proposed yesterday, on Kardashian’s 33rd birthday, in front of friends and family at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

Earlier in the day, the 36-year-old rapper had presented and award at the Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills but flew to the Bay Area to meet up with his future bride, 33. He had reportedly rented the stadium solely for the proposal. When he popped the question, the stadium's Jumbotron displayed, "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" and the Chicago Symphony performed. Hairstylist Clyde Haygood got a picture of the ring. Kim's sister Khloé tweeted some typically exclamation-point-filled reactions, asking if she was dreaming and proclaiming her tears of joy.

West had just begun his Yeezus tour, which he kicked off with a two-hour set Saturday night. The next day, he postponed that night's show, the second of the tour, at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver until Halloween. It has yet to be confirmed if that decision was related to the proposal. West's Yeezus tour will resume in the Bay Area at Oakland's Oracle Arena tomorrow night.

This is West's second publically known engagement. It will be Kardashian's third marriage, following her divorce from Boston Celtics power forward Kris Humphries, which was finalized June 3 of this year. West and Kardashian began dating early last year and "admitted" he fell in love with Karsdashian that July. He announced last year at a concert in Atlantic City that Kardashian was pregnant with his child, and, in June of this year, the couple welcomed their daughter, North "Nori" West, into the world. West offered up his first TV interview in three years to Kardashian's mother, Kris Jenner, in August, where he revealed the first photo of North and joked, "There's times when I wasn't with [Kim], I wanted be with her so bad I thought about taking up sports."

"[Marriage] is something I know that we both want in our future, but I don't have this sense of urgency about it," Kardashian reportedly told Cosmopolitan earlier this year. But later in the interview, she said of the relationship, "It just feels like this is it for me."

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
