New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries has put a diamond ring on the finger of Kim Kardashian, and the couple are now engaged, the reality TV star's rep confirms to CNN.
According to People magazine, the surprise proposal went down on May 18 at Kardashian's Beverly Hills home. Humphries, 26, waited for the reality TV star in her bedroom, down on bended knee, with the words "will you marry me" spelled out in red rose petals.
Kardashian, who has been dating the athlete for six months, says the question caught her off-guard.
"I didn't expect this at all," the 30-year-old told People. "I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now," she said.
With the help of Kardashian's mom Kris Jenner, Humphries planned an intimate celebration for the engagement. Although he wasn't aiming for a huge fete, the basketball star did know he wanted one thing to be over-the-top: the ring. He tells People of the 20.5-carat sparkler, "I just knew I wanted it to be big."
Diamond rings have been in use since the Archduke of Austria Maximilian gave Burgundy a diamond ring in 1477. Since then, it has been customary for most to propose with a diamond ring. Many who have made the step up with diamond engagement rings to show their undying love to their partner have been successful. Simply, diamonds are a girl’s best friend and they last forever too. Just as a diamond lasts forever, you also hope your love is forever.;,

Valuable info. Lucky me I found your web site by accident, and I'm stunned why this twist of fate did not happened earlier! I bookmarked it.
Who really care , she getting married thats good, he bought her a 2mil ring , so what, it's his money. People need to stop hating. If it hurts you that much that someone ( other than you sorry a$$ ) finally found love and happiness, let it be. Go out a caught you a gold mine and stop hating . PS to all who mad stupid A$$ comments like His white, he's black, he's mixed . WHO THE F-CARES. As long as those two are happy, F- what you people think. Get a life, grow up , educate yourself, but please do something other than hate 24/7 on people you actually probably don't really even know ( Media is bull-S and always has it's facts twisted just to sale mags, and you fools fall for it all the time . Just read you comments and you see how petty ans insecure you all sound hatting on another
You all jobless.
Dors anyone else notice her ring is almost exactly like Kloe's?? She's always been jealous of kloe's ring so it wouldn't suprise me if she hinted to him about the size, or is HE trying to overdo Lamar? Lol!?
Sue, you sound like one of those girls in high school that never really got any attention, never went to prom and was probably a social outcast. Your the kind of person that cannot be happy for anyone else, ever. You have a bad spirit and I feel really sad for you.
@ TheMad R@pr3 – who gives a sh^# about starving kids in Africa? How much money or food have you sent to them lately? That's what I thought.
Why anyone would want to marry that self centered idiot is beyond me.... Hope she walks and you look like an stupid man that thinks any woman in this day in age that so worried about the size of the ring she get... will walk to the first man that can giver her more... I do not understand why that family is on TY any way... they are so self centered.
I find it ironic that not long before or shortly after she was engaged she claims that she is taking a year off to work on her "family". Pregnant much?
Khloe needn't be jealous; she'll always be the largest of them all, ring or no ring.
Hey Kris HUMP HER FOR FREE....Then do the smart thing RUN................................
kim leave black men alone just because white men suck ass
Traditionally a man would spend 2 months salary on a engagement ring. So lets not hate because his 2 months salary is much more than what we make in a year. God has blessed him. If most of us were not so concerned about how others waist their money, maybe they can spend their time more constructively on trying to make more themselves. Congrats Kim for finding another sucker. Trust me I know one when I see one, I jump the broom once.... lol
Armenian they are not. The father was, these kids did not know who or where they came from until it's a tool used for t.v. I do not blame these girls, I blame media for thrusting a no talent family in front of us and guess what, it stuck to the wall. The only way to get them away is for us to stop watching the they will take them away and produce other crap for us to judge. The family & t.v. has won this round.
Please, please stop giving attention to these 2 brainless bimbos. They are no talent nothings. Their "reality" shows are the worst of the worst and most boring crap I've ever seen. They want reality? Get jobs, lead REAL lives that don't iclude having a camera record every time you burp.
I think all of you, need to get a grip on reality and go outside and smell the fresh air.
I hope she swallows
One night 6 of us banged her 3 at a time. He is getting one stretched out p*ssy and a$$!
Does he know how many guys have f**cked that big fat a$$ of hers?
I wish this guy a lot of luck. She strikes me as a world class pain in the tail. Cannot be easy to live with.
Her fiance is as gay as a goose....
Yes, and this will last forever! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!
is it just me or do her eyes look like something out of those Twilight movies? (not a twi-fan, so don't flame me as one please)
really freaking me out- . . . . . is she sparkling?
@ sue- hating a little are we? drink a little hatorade this morning? lol.
Please make these girls (& their mother) go AWAY!
desperation and the desire to get married drives many people to the altar. After the wedding then what? Doesn't Beyonce have a $5million dollar ring.
Khloe shouldn't be jealous, Im 99% sure Lamar paid for her ring But with Kim, I'm only 20% sure Kris Humphries paid for Kim's. Lamar makes more money and I dont think Kris is as rich and I feel Kim probably paid for her own ring or the jeweler was promised free ad space when they get married. How said the a man's love is measured by the size of your ring. By the way mine is 2.5 carats and im happy!
who care about the CRAPdashians
Kim is best person in world.She is my favorite
This is the most canned bs I have read all day.
I didn't expect this at all," the 30-year-old told People. "I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now,"
Oh wait. should I say that again, I didnt read the script right. Let me try again..
FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE.
ha...nevermind to that comment....hes a basketball player...woof...so many guys shes dated that i forget who's who sometimes
I fail to see anything racist in calling a person 'black".
After all african/americans are black, so what?
White people are referred to as white so what is wrong with calling a spade a spade?
Yea, instead of being white, why aren't white people called english americans? if blacks are african americans..
but what about a white skinned person born in Africa, but moved to America... a true African American... how crazy is the concept?
wowzers!!...have never seen soo many comments on cnn for mrs kim....what i would say is hope he has full insurance on that ring cause she a little dingy and might loose it...then that would suck..all his homeruns couldnt pay for another one!
i love her but she seems to fake!! :/
Hope he has a pre-nup so when they split he gets that 20 carats back! I give it 6 months tops!
She's just plain WHITE TRASH!!!
Totally agree the whole family is trash!
"I just knew I wanted it to be big."
I got ya covered and I hope those lips feel as good as they look
Lars must like his sloppy seconds . . .she's not only been 'round the block, she's been 'round the world - eww–can't imagine the "leftovers" – ugh
Uhhh. I'll take em
Who gives a crap about this faked up nobody? She's got her mother to thank for pimping her out – – I bet it was mamma Jenner who "leaked" the video anyway! She'll never achieve "greatness" in the world's eyes - all she cares about is shopping, Fendi bags, fancy cars, fancy houses - so materialistic and FAKE. How about trading in that ridiculous ring and starting a charity? Can she imagine how many people she could feed and clothe? Nope, she doesn't and never will . . . go buy a private island and get out of the media!
I read not long ago that he has every bit of hair removed from her body except for her eye area and head hair. How strange is that.
Sorry, I meant that SHE has hair removed. Fingers too fast for brain, lol.
Oh this is simmply wonderful news!!! One question.... Who IS this human mold of recycled tupperware???
She's smokin' hot and any guy that says he would pass on that is a liar and any woman who tries to talk any garbage is just a jealous, fat, ugly marshmellow pizza face.
Wow–another celebrity "engagement"! That means in another 5 yrs from now, we get to go through another celebrity divorce!!! Yippee!! There is NO possible way to know someone intimately enough, after a mere 6 mos, to marry them. At that point, you are "in love" with their image, their beauty, their wealth and fame–it's infatuation. You haven't experienced many arguements, but if you have had MANY-then that's a warning sign it's maybe not the best relationship, or have had enough of every day life to really know the person inside the nice body. Kris Humphries is in love with an image–he's a 26 yr old KID in love with a very savvy, manipulative WOMAN. I can only hope that this engagement is at least 2 yrs long......and that they set the date after that 2 yrs–for another 1 yr later.
Who cares if she is pregnant, married or anything else?
WATCH YOUR SHOW, VERY HAPPY FOR YOU.
Apparently any athlete will do ? She hung on to Reggie Bush until he wouldn't propose then moved on to this guy. Six months together and they think they are ready to talk marriage ?!? Crazy.
That's an expensive piece of @$$!
This wannabe star is the biggest Ho-bag around. She bed-hops from athlete to athlete loking for one that is stupid enough to actually do the deed and marry her so she can ride down easy street for the rest of her life on his big salary. Quickly, someone name one thing of any value to the world she has done other than shake her big booty at the press and stalk a high profile man. I didn't think so.
I think she is very Lucky & she shuld pray harder 4 more of datz or else Rat ill steal d Diamond
All D̶̲̥̅ best babe, and U̶̲̥̅̊ deserve D̶̲̥̅ ring coz dem no write EAZY for Ūя̲̅ head
Jeff worry about your own bed. Kim is one of the most beautiful women in America,you're just hot because can't get her with your acorn.
Kim is not one of the most beautiful women in the world. She is far from it. Yes, her face is pretty but that is it. Her behind is disgustingly fat. Her personality is gross and she is one of the least talented people is America. Everything she has is because of her tape that got "leaked". We are in a sad state in America when all it takes to be famous and rich is a crappy video of you getting smashed and going down on a guy. Her interview with Piers Morgan was hilarious... her trying to explain how she is talented... "I am talented at marketing and business". She has a good PR person and a good Agent.
Great catch Kris, you got a girl thats on a video and very self absorbed. Oh. and she will be dumping you seeing as you're a 2nd rate player and won't amount to much in the NBA. Oh the disease in that bed......
Good, now I can stop worrying about her well-being and get some sleep tonight.
I THINK BEING 30 YEARS OLD HAS RELI BROUGHT GOOD LUCK ON UR SIDE. BE HAPPY GAL GOD IS SMILING WITH U... WISH YOU THE BEST... I THINK ITS NOT HOW LONG SOMETHING TAKES? BUT HOW FAR CAN YOU GO TO PROTECT SOMETHING YOU ADORE?
I cant believe People magazine put this story on its cover,, well actually I do. I cannot fathom why anyone is interested in this ridiculous woman and her cartoon family. BORING! And this is, what, her third engagement? And mama Kris approved after only a few months of dating? Really????
No furniture needed for their new place....he can set his drink on her a**
It won't last a year, not unless she decides to give up the limelight and keep her clothes on. No sane husband wants his wife out there whoring herself out for photographers in various stages of undress. It's not like she's an actress or has any skills. The only thing she markets is her body, and one of the points of marriage is to take that body off the market. How long do you suppose she could go without the attentions of fans and paparatzi alike? Not long, I'd guess since her whole psyche is built around the attention being of HER. A tiger can't change it's stripes.
Who cares? Another reality show idiot making money from people lame enough to watch her show. I don't understand how someone with no talent or ability to contribute to society can make so much money while millions of americans are jobless and struggling with everyday realities. I would be ashamed of myself.
cause posting a pic of them as a couple would make too much sense...
oops i meant we were engaged after 3 months, we were married at 5 months.
omg why are all these people on here reading this if yall realy hate the kardashians. thats dumb. and me and my husband dated only 3 months when we got married and we have a baby now and we have been married for nearly 3 years. we are still so inlove as when we first met at age 14. so what they got engaged after 6 months khloe got married quick too. i just feel bad her dad cant be there, thats so hard for girls. i think that might be kourts problem.
Awesome. Can't wait for the wedding night video.
who care about the crapdashians
Who do these girls have as a example? Mom is their pimp, they bring nothing to the table, they all sound like they have sinus trouble. Iam sick of hearing & seeing them eveyrwhere except church.
The number of people hungery and having hard times in America and we get to hear about her 20.5 carat ring. I hope she rots in hell.
i would givb her the force hard and deep,then give her a nice tip,and be on my way.
Just give him the money now and save some time. Women like her are just hot, not lovable.
Congratulations Kim & Kris, I hope everything works out for them, Kim has been around the block & then some,
so it's time she settled down. Now Let's hope Big Sister Kourtney will take a hint & marry Scott.
20.5 carat? Yes, 21 carats would've been 'over the top'. It must look like an ice cube on her finger.
the surprise proposal went down on May 18. Probably not the only thing that went down on May 18.
good for them. unfortunately it probably won't last very long. as history has suggested relationships in the spotlight usually end up failing. good luck to them though. maybe they'll surprise us all and become the exception.
YAY!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE KIM KARDASHIAN!!!!!!!!!!! She is the greats PERSON IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!! I LOVE HER<SHE WILL BE THE MNOST BEAUTIFUL WIFE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHO RUNS THE WORLD????? KIM KARDASHIAN AND HE CHEEKBONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who's Kim Kardashian?
After dating six months? I hope they last longer than that...
I am sad that People Magazine now promotes this. There is so much in the world they could have put on the front page. How much money was paid for that????? Mommy would not allow it for nothing., They could have taken the money and given it to the Red Cross for all the devastation that is happening in our country. This is the woman's sencond marriage – no fan fare needed. I am not jealous I am disgusted at this family in general. They are everywhere and for what – themselves and all the money that they keep making because people are crazy and like them. They will make MILLIONS OFF THIS and that is sick. People magazine has turned into a trashy magazine. It is not front page material. But $$$ talks and all these people are all crazy.
he looks like joran van der sloot
What the heck does 20 carats look like? Sheesh!!! Show the ring already.
No one really cares who, Kim sucks or marries
I still hit it when dude's out practicing.
Kim is a horse.
I don't know anything about Kim but I did do her little sister Kendall at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
No one claimed to know anything if you havent experienced it do not speak I have a cousin that has a white mother I grew up with a guy with a white mother i've seen how they were treated growing up. So sit on your high horse talking out your azz b/c you havent experienced that.
Ok yall listen to me. I want horse dooookey all over my face! I want to smell a horse buttt and drop a dooo kie on me!
Congratulations,you are a beautiful couple and you'll be lovely bride best wishes!
She will be a lovely bride. At the reception, they will show the ray j video so the halfbreed know what to expect. Then she will do a pony instead of throwing the bouquet!
Lmao at the stable called comment. Too fricken funny man.
kim is beautiful i hope it last fro her sake.
I expect a video of Kim, the halfbreed, and a horse right after the honeymoon!
Sarah Jessica Parker just called to tell you that she is offended by your remark and would never be in a video with Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.
you can play the a$$ – type-casting
If you thought Star Jones’ circus of a wedding to Al Whatsisname was annoying, hold on to your uber-sponsored hats. The cross-promotional wedding of the century is about to unfold, so stock up on your Dramamine, ’cause a fierce case of nausea is about to ensue.

Funny how all the tabloids reported Kim has been wanting to get married for a while now. Please... it's a publicity stunt. Next thing you know there is going to be a reality TV show called "The Married Life of the Kardashians." Pathetic.
Total white trash!
I give the relationship 10 mins
Well the day has almost finally arrived. Ms. Kim Kardashian is engaged and planning a wedding! Personally, I have never cared about the Kardashian women because all I saw was a sham. It was all about the money, being seen, etc. But I truly do wish them the best because marriage is a sacred thing that brings commitment and sacrifice, two things that I haven't seen in Kim Kardashian or her sisters to date except for the one married to Lamar Odom but even that one was basically a shotgun wedding. So again I wish them the best.
what a hypocrite.
yeah, that marriage will last a long time – NOT! it's crazy to get engaged after such a short time of dating. there never a good solid base for a relationship to truly last long-term after only knowing someone for so little of time. hope Kim's got a good divorce lawyer on retainer as she'll need it (same with Khloe as i doubt her marriage is going to survive more than a few years).
Looking forward to seeing that ring- how huge! She will make a beautiful bride.
@ Jennifer until you feel the pain of racism don't call me names b/c you believe its not like that all these white people feel like that even you
You will continue to perpetuate racist ideals when you make senseless, moderately racist comments yourself. Don't claim to know what everyone is thinking or what they believe.
she is totaly trying to out due Khloe and its a sham. to bad for her the world has other things to foucus on that are more important.
I'm so HAPPY for her because I know how bad she wanted to be married! But it's funny cause he got her double the size of ring then Khloe got from Lamar and he plays for a better team! How did he afford it playing for a crap team? But they're dumb spending money on a ring? Her house is just as much as the ring. They should have waited but then again when you hit the 6 month mark and it's still going good, then he's a keeper! I hope we get to see their wedding details on KUWTK!!! She's going to go all out I'm sure, Khloe is probably jealous her ring isn't big now lol..I hope Scott and Kourt get married now..she was dumb for not saying YES to him
Mz. Kim, white people don't care about his mother being white. He is black b/c of his father the 1% rule
@rubberman... you are a sorry excuse for a human being. It's idiots like you that perpetuate racism. I hope for the world's sake you are unable to reproduce.
Jennifer u be right. You go girl. I a black mandingo and want to date you. You owe me that much atleast. Wut yo phone numba.
@rubberman... I was merely pointing out that is has an African Amercian Father... so it makes him black, not full but half but black nonetheless. It doesnt matter if they are in "so called" love, black, white, love is love and I hope they make it...
Kim, congrats. Now you have a fat diamond to match your behind. ::watches the ray j and kim video::
I think this is great! I can't wait to see the ring.
like Kim. really I do. but damn 6mos?? girl u was in loooooove with Reggie for over 2yrs and it's your right to move on but 6mos is a lil more than premature considering how busy you claim to be. in those 6mos how much actual time have you guys spent together. take the time and breathe.
Not saying its going to last (or won't last), but when Khloe got engaged to Lamar (in like three seconds), I remember thinking, wow, this won't last, but now that I see them together, I think they are perfect together. Sometimes, you just know. Every relationship is different. My bestfriend's parents got engaged after two weeks and have been married for 40 years. Again, not trying to compare, but you also can't compare them to Reggie. Clearly, that relationship wasn't right. Let time tell and let's hope for the best. Everyone should wish every couple the best, barring some sort of abuse.
well, he has cash. and most likely bulging like me if he's trying to please her, we all know that thing has been beaten down.
His team doesnt win, and may not be in the league that much longer,so she will bump him like a bad habit.
Say whaaa? They are moving to a billion dollar arena in Brooklyn. Pretty much the opposite of "might not be in the league anymore." And he is about to get paid big time, hes a free agent.
Jay does that mean the New Jersey Nets are going to be the New York Nets? Last time I checked Brooklyn was no where near Jersey.....(not being ignorant...i really want to know and I'm a New Yorker)
The New York Jets play in NJ. I don't think that matters.
This will not last...what a shame she wants to be married that bad how about you get to really know a person first.She was with Reggie for longer then Kris and that didn't work out so what the heck makes them think this will after 6 months...Marriage should not be an ultimate goal for women, it is not everything in life!!! I'd put $ that this does not last! Not being negative being realistic!
Liz is bitter! I'm divorced, so I know marriage is hard! I wish Kim and Kris the best and pray they will be happy!
I wish her all the happiness in the world. Hard or not, marriage is still a blessed event.
Kris jenner probably called her fat afterwards, thanks mom
Wonder who will make it to the alter first...Kim or Jessica Simpson???
20.5 carats? Completely uncalled for. Just because you have the money does not mean you should blow it on such material things.
People have a right to spend THEIR money on whatever they want.
Jealous much? LOL! Who gives a crap if they spend their money on a huge diamond, it's their money.
But don't you guys get that there are children in africa starving right now because of the uneven wealth distribution and racism?
After 6 months he buys a 2 Million dollar ring... Wow he's the fool Good for her... See if he gets that 2 mill back when she dumps him
The Mad R@p3r
well then head on over to Africa and help out and stop posting on blogs.
Allison, I totally agree. Why would be suggest your jealous? That's just dumb. It's a huge waste of money. Even if he has it. A ring serves no purpose other than to show the world that you are married. I'm not knocking that. But why do it with $2 million when, frankly a $10,000 or even a $100,000 ring is stunningly beautiful? Sorry, it's a wasteful dispay.
I have to agree. It isn't necessary. Sure it is their money to spend, but I understand the point that there are starving people in the world that that type of money could help. You don't even have to go as far away as Africa. You will find people in every city. The disproportion of wealthy and poor in this world is heartbreaking. Anyways, Kim would never marry someone who didn't give her a big rock. She is superficial and fake, she would probably have said no if it was anything less than 20 karats.
Awww thats nice.. I hope it lasts!
LOL, that's a good one.
I can't believe she's actually marrying a white guy. I thought she liked her men like she liked her coffee, black!
Just to let you know he is half black...His father is African American... So I suppose she is getting the best of both worlds!
Didn't know that. At least she's staying true to form.
hes half black lool
Which half would that be Sarah?
The lower half.
This time, it is only appropriate to give the groom a piñata as a wedding gift (it's never been opened before!)
She's not black. Her father was Turkish Armenian and half Russian Armenian. Shouldn't matter though. Who cares?
That bottom half business sounds intriguing!
There's something about mixed guys (Latin/white, Asian/white, black/white, etc.) that is so, hmm, attractive.
Wow. Did someone say her father was Turkish Armenian? Clearly people don't know history. He was Armenian, and Kim is half Armenian. To call an Armenian person Turkish is an insult. His ancestors were survivors of the Armenian genocide that was perpetrated by the Turkish government (Ottoman Empire at the time). Armenians are indo European. Turks are asian- they invaded the lands in present day Turkey and took them from Greeks, Armenians, etc.
So don't ever mistake Turkish and Armenian together.
Nope dude is just High Yellow, but what does it matter.
rhinoceros and homer engayged
Until she became a "fixture" in a stupid reality show, she was just as average as the rest of us. I don't ever watch these reality shows and I never will. Fake, all hype, and staged. Thats it. OK< I am glad she found her soul mate, at least for this year, but until she got a reality show, she was just walking about life as the rest of us "citiznes". Her make up is fake, her smile is fake, and I am sure plenty of her is fake, especially the personality. The Kardashian's make me puke. I could care less about the money. I'd be happier with my small income and privacy then to be expolited and live life the rest of my life in the spotlight as a fake. IS she a real actress? NO, Is she a REAL benefactor to a wealth of children that learn by her? NO. Is she a well respected person (OPRAH) that made a difference in life? NO! She got chosen to be on a reality show and made tons of money. Good for her. I say B – F – D. Happy wedding, I am glad for her she found love, but we all find love in life. It is not a big deal.
Well when it does not work out..she will have a nice diamond to trade in.
It's idiotic to spend $2 million on a ring for a tramp when he's only made $16 million (GROSS) in his entire NBA career, which won't last for much longer.
WHO CARES???? How about the white trash that watches (and care about) this garbage. Get a life!!!!!
Wow what year do you live in? The rest of us are in 2011 catch up dude
John is actually from the future looking back on 2011... He ask the question because she has become irrelevant due in part her bringing nothing to the world.
