Hip hop recording artist Kanye West rented the home of the San Francisco Giants to propose to reality television star Kim Kardashian on Monday night. E! Online broke the news that West used the AT&T Park jumbotron to pop the question: “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”

West, who is performing in the Bay Area this week, chose the stadium to serve as the setting on Kardashian’s 33rd birthday.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that West asked his future mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, for permission to ask for Kardashian’s hand. When Kardashian said yes, friends of the couple ran out of a dugout beneath a fireworks show.

Here’s a video of the orchestra that West hired to play songs such as “Knock Me Down,” found via Deadspin:

SI. I would like to say you're better than this, but as of late, you have not been. Therefore you are not. This is bush league sports reporting. Please send the Cosmo writers back to Cosmo and get me some more Peter King's.

Isn't asking your fiancee to come to a baseball park when there's no game being played kinda ruin the surprise factor?

Stop stooping to crass sports broadcasting. This crap has nothing to do with sports. You guys are not Enterainment Weekly. Leave that garbage to them. Don't lower the bar reporting on Kanye West and this floozy.

I think she is hot but I do like some butt on a woman not to mention her boobs. That said other than renting AT&T stadium how is his proposal sports related SI? So I guess SI will be reporting on anyone that rents a ball park for an event? I always wanted to be in the pages of SI, get ready to see a fat old man that nobody knows! I'm renting Dodger stadium for a family reunion or something, hmmmm now what should I wear....

Kanye was just being practical: AT&T Park was the only local venue big enough to hold her butt.

She is a total pig - put an apple in her mouth & peel the potatoes.  And her mother & sisters are total skanks.  SI has hit a new low today.

I feel stupid for even commenting on this. SI should feel more stupid for even allowing the article to be written and put up on their website.

Now this is a story worthy of the world's premier sports magazine.

I hate these two aholes... they truly deserve each other... If this bi snaps any more selfies of herself she may as well skip the bulldog looking Kanye and marry herself!!!

So that's why he postponed his Vancouver concert? For some reality TV star? And what does this have to do with sports anyway (except for the fact that it was at a baseball park)?

@Ted7441 Lots of women are famous for being extremely pretty.  They're called models.  Have you not ever heard of magazines?  She's quite often in them doing nothing more than being pretty.  The real question is - Why do you have such a problem with her making money off of her looks when thousands of other women do the exact same thing?

@salvaje50 She is filthy rich herself. You think she needs any money from Kanye West? You make absolutely no sense at all. I can't stand either one of them but your statement is pure ignorance.

First, she isn't extremely pretty. Second, being a supermodel doesn't involve a sex tape (Cindy Crawford for example). Third, don't play the "I am a proud women card", because you are making women look bad. Fourth, botex + surgery = Wayne Newton, not an extremely pretty site.
