Did Kanye West propose to Kim with a black diamond after she gave birth?

There were a lot of rumors last week that Kim Kardashian was “disappointed” that Kanye West hadn’t given her a blinged-out “push present” after she gave birth to baby girl North West (ugh). I’m not sure how much stock I would put into those rumors though – after all, North did come early and if Kanye was going to give Kim a present, he might not have had it prepared so early. But what if Kanye was prepared to propose to Kim after she gave birth? Well… I wouldn’t be surprised, quite honestly. And The Daily Mail/The Sun says that Kanye DID propose. With a black diamond.

Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian after she gave birth to their daughter North, it has been claimed. The 36-year-old rapper asked the reality star to marry him just days after the couple welcomed their first child, The Sun reports. The pair are said to be planning a September wedding in Paris.

While Kanye is said to have asked Kim to marry him without an engagement ring he is said to have spent £500,000 on a rare black diamond ring, as a gift to mark the birth of their child.

A spokesperson for Kim was unavailable for comment on Sunday.

Kim gave birth to her first child Saturday 15 June – a month ahead of her due date. Mail Online exclusively revealed that the reality star had been admitted to hospital in Beverly Hills the night before. Kim had taken out a birthing suite at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center – a hospital of choice among many celebrities including Britney Spears, Victoria Beckham and Jessica Simpson.

The reality star is said to have splashed out more than $100,000 on her four day stay at the hospital.

A source told The Sun; ‘Kanye wasted no money in making sure Kim had the best of everything while she’s in hospital. He has spent half a million on a ring as a push present and had it designed months ago in preparation. He’s even more in love with her now than ever and they can’t wait to get married.’

Kim only finialised her divorce from her second husband Kris Humphries earlier this month after a long and bitter legal battle. Their marriage lasted just 72 before Kim filed for divorce in October 2011. Kim was also married to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 until 2004.

As I said, it wouldn’t surprise me. I’m also not surprised by the idea that Kanye might have been planning to propose after the birth all along, and that Kanye – who views himself as the pinnacle of all style – wanted to design the engagement ring himself. I think Kim will probably be disappointed with a black diamond though – she probably had her heart set on a pink diamond.

Meanwhile, TMZ had a TMI story about Kim and breastfeeding:

Kim Kardashian’s breasts have swelled to a record-sized G-CUP following her pregnancy — and sources close to the reality star tell TMZ, she LOVES whipping out her massive new mammaries for baby-suckling time.

Sources tell us, Kim’s taking to motherhood like a newborn to a nipple — in fact, she actively looks forward to her “feedings” with baby North West … EVEN CHANGING DIRTY DIAPERS!!! As one source put it, “She does it all.”

It’s pretty crazy … considering how vocal Kim’s been about motherly duties in the past. Back in 2010, she got into hot water for criticizing a mom for breastfeeding at a restaurant.

As for Kanye, we’re told he’s a natural dad — “No one has ever seen him like this.”

[From TMZ]

Well… Kim is being a doting mother… for now. We’ll see how it is six months from now. A year from now. Maybe Kim will be like Kourtney, who really did “grow up” and become a decent mom after Mason. Or maybe North West is just going to be raised by nannies while Kim follows Kanye around while he tours.

UPDATE: People Mag says Kanye didn’t propose.

    A black diamond??? Why???!!! This guy is seriously weird.

  2. DanaG says:

    He is an idiot if he proposed they have barely been together for months and having a baby is one of the most stressful things in a relationship. But then Kanye will come and go as he pleases and Kim has an army of help so probably not for them. Kim probably found out breast feeding helps you lose weight and that is why she is so into it. I wonder if she is waking for the nightly feeds or she expresses so someone else can do it for her.

    • cmc says:

      I’m pretty sure they’ve been publicly together for over a year at this point. And have known each othe for even longer. Just sayin’.

      • NerdMomma says:

        I tend to think that Kanye’s relationship with the media is what makes them seem tense. From what he has said about Kim, I suspect they’re a solid couple. As you say, they’ve known each other for a LONG time.

      • Maggie says:

        I hate when people say “Just sayin’” when they’re being snarky. “Just sayin’”

      • BeesKness says:

        Nerd momma I agree, but Kim has no discernible talents and her whole career has been made by courting the media. If Kanye wasn’t comfortable with that, he obviously knew from the beginning who Kim was and why she was famous and could have ended the relationship before she got pregnant. I don’t think their relationship will last because if she stops doing everything publicly, Kim Kardashian ceases to exists bascially. I think that will be a point of contention between the two. Kim may say she wants privacy now, but she will soon realize that without her reality show, the paparazzi and twitter/instagram, she will fade into obscurity much like Paris Hilton

      • littlestar says:

        Even though they have been dating for over a year, they are rarely ever physically together. So I’d say its fair to assume they don’t truly know each other at this point. And as for knowing each other for years… I think that’s more of them randomly hooking up throughout the years as opposed to actually being real friends.

    • Kitten Mittens says:

      Marriage is an annulment/divorce away to some people. It doesn’t appear to be taken seriously by celebs. No one sticks around to work it out and when times get tough they just walk away.

      Really DanaG? Is Kim only breast feeding to lose weight and feels no urge at all to bond and care for her child? I’ve seen very self absorbed women become loving mothers after giving birth.
      If this is how it is days after she’s given birth then the fat cow comments when she struggles to lose the baby weight are not far behind.

      • Meredith says:

        I will be amazed if a wedding actually takes place. And I know it sounds harsh to say that. But Kanye has seemed so disinterested since Kim got pregnant, not even in the same country. Why plan a wedding if it’s only going to be treated as a media event/promotional tool? Oh, sorry, forgot who I was talking about :)

    • Latisse says:

      Meh. She’s a douche, he’s a douche, sounds like a match made in heaven to me.

    • jwoolman says:

      And if she’s one of those women who can’t lose an ounce until the kid is weaned?

  3. Quinn says:

    I want to smack myself every time I read one of these Kardashian stories…I really just need to stop.

  4. Jennykins says:

    A friend told me the other day she wanted a black diamond because she likes the way they look and they are CHEAPER than the other colours. How you feel about that Kimmykins?

  5. Asdfg says:

    Didn’t Joel Zimmerman propose to Kat Von D with a black diamond ring too?

    I kind of like black diamonds. :)

  6. ErinINPitt says:

    I’ve never bought any story on Tmz about the Karshasians or the Lohans. You just know that Harvey has a special phone line for both PMK & DML, so anything they report is generally planted bullshit. As for DM/The Sun – they just flat-out make up stories. I doubt very much that Kayne proposed. He’s too busy trying to find all the cameras & recoding devices PMK hid in the nursery, not to mention planning his escape.

  7. Tracy says:

    Black diamonds are super cheap! He must have had some outrageous side stones to pay that much for it.

  8. Joy says:

    I’m sure she loves breast feeding little Accessory I mean North.

  9. Jackson says:

    Ugh. I know it’s a matter of personal preference, but a black diamond?? I think they are so blah. As for him proposing, whatever. I am resigning myself to these two idiots being in the news for quite some time. If the birth and the engagement coincide then it’s all the better. Now if they would only secretly get married before they come out of hiding that would be fabulous.

  10. Birdix says:

    Who is in the hospital, measuring her cup size? That sounds ridiculous.

    • NerdMomma says:

      Haha this is a good point. The whole story is silly. I mean, the baby was born 2 days ago, there’s no need to evaluate Kim’s mothering skills. But yeah, the public totally needed to know her cup size *sarcasm*

    • Katrina says:

      Surely she had to be measured for new nursing bras or even for new regular bras. Dear God, could you imagine her G boobies flailing around braless!? Unfortunately, I don’t have to imagine it. I’ve got my very own set of natural G’s, and let me tell you, that is NOT a pretty sight…not to mention extremely painful on my small(ish) frame. Ughhh! So, for her benefit and all those that must look at her, I hope to high Heaven someone measured her and strapped those things down nice and securely.

  11. HappyMom says:

    If he has proposed, which I seriously doubt-it’s only as a reward for naming the baby what he wanted to name her, not parading her around (yet) and saying that they’ll follow him around on tour. His way, all the way.

  12. Mandy says:

    I’m betting on the latter. We all know how this story will end. But hey, if she wants to prove us wrong, go right ahead Kimmy!

  13. Tiffany27 says:

    He should propose. He made her name their child North West!

  14. DIANE says:

    Geez, I woulda thought she’d at least name the kid Knorth. At least we know what the next one will be called.

  15. Lucy2 says:

    Nice try with the TMZ story, Pimp Mama Kris.
    I doubt they will ever get married, and if he’s so in love with her, why was he avoiding her like the plague during the whole pregnancy?

    Oh, and of course she’s being a doted mom- the reality show cameras are there!

  16. janie says:

    A black diamond? That is creepy on the heels of a newborn.. just saying. I hope she loves motherhood & this baby has her mom. Proposing doesn’t surprise me? She & that family are so quiet it’s spooky. He is actually smiling? Wow! By the way, I love her name! Nori.. very cute!

  17. Annie says:

    Yeah good job Kris Jenner, spilling tips to TMZ only to have them write a super pervy article. I hope you’re happy!

  18. s says:

    OK, as much as I dislike kim, I’m kind of relieved that she and Kanye are staying together, if this is true. Maybe it’s not all a sham and people are doing right by each other and the kid. I can dare to dream.

  19. PortlandJan says:

    A black diamond. How cheap can he be? Those are just one step above coal.

  20. TG says:

    Anyone who has to mention that they change diapers, in all caps no less, is lying. Any parent who actually “parents” their child doesn’t even think about changing diapers. It is a natural process and not something you would need to mention in an interview or have your sources, aka, PMK, leak to the press. Also, I thought they put it out there that Kim was having trouble breastfeeding? How come they always put out two conflicting stories? I don’t believe for one moment that this selfish excuse of a woman is breastfeeding.

    • Agnetha says:

      Kind of like parents who call watching their own children baby sitting. You can’t baby sit your own kids!

    • jwoolman says:

      They put out conflicting stories because they’re trying to see which one gets the best reaction. They did the same thing to try to deal with the unexpectedly negative reaction to Kimmie filing for divorce after her 72 day “marriage”. They tossed out all sorts of weird incredible stories about Kris Humphries later to try to make Kimmie a victim.

  21. Brickyard Ute says:

    Ugh- I hope this is not true but who knows. Just focus on being new parents but I guess this is near impossible for these two self-involved nitwits.

    I’m actually happy for Kris Humpheries. I bet after everything he went through with this family it’s nice to be outside the constant drama. I bet its also nice to see Kanye tell this family what’s what.

  22. Jane says:

    The symbolic meaning of the color black has been said to be “authority and power”. So does this mean Kanye thinks has authority and power over Kim after she marries him?

  23. The Original Mia says:

    Nice story, PMK. But no. I doubt they are ever getting married.

  24. Dovie says:

    Black diamonds are not rare. They are crappy I1-3 (cloudy/included) diamonds of lower colors that are irradiated to be black so the imperfections can’t be seen.

    Irradiated diamonds are a dime a dozen. Just check out ebay and your nearest mall.

    If he truly wanted to get her a rare diamond, he could have gone for a natural blue, green, or purple diamond. Natural meaning no irridation – some places love to say thier diamonds are natural when they’ve been color treated which means NOT natural.

  25. The Original G says:

    I don’t actually believe a word of this story….none of it.

  26. Bla says:

    She’s into breast feeding because its a fast way to loose baby weight.

    • swack says:

      Breastfeeding is not necessarily a way to lose weight quickly. For some women it helps, for other not. I breast fed all my children and did not lose weight “quickly” because of it. It just depends on the person. ROL had a story that she was having trouble breastfeeding and wouldn’t last more than a week at it (most new moms do have trouble). All these stories from “sources” – not very believable.

  27. Shelly says:

    Of course it would be a black diamond…since that’s the only color he allows her to wear for the most part.

  28. Belle Epoch says:

    Can we take bets on whether or not they will actually get married? I don’t even believe Kanye proposed, let alone will marry her. She is nothing but trouble and embarrassment for Yeezus.

  29. idk says:

    Are we supposed to bow down to her because she changes HER daughter’s diapers and breast feeds????? It’s only been a week, and during most of that time, the nurses probably changed the diapers as the child was in an incubator…plus diapers get disgusting when the child is a few months along…not yet. As a side note, doesn’t breast feeding help you lose weight faster…ahhh there’s the motive for her enthusiasm !

  30. serena says:

    ‘EVEN CHANGING DIRTY DIAPERS!!!’ like that’s some huge deal.
    Anyway I didn’t know she was married for four years to a music producer..I’m kinda shocked here.

  31. Liberty says:

    KW: I got you a ring.

    KK: gimmeee— wha—

    KW: are you familar with jewels programming?

    KK: whaaaa—? But —

    KW: I can always give it to Riccye.

    KK: —-no gimmmmeeeee— engagement?

    KW: no, DNA graduation.

  32. Jenn says:

    I’m still stuck on the G cup boobs. Je.. I mean Yeezus. Maybe she’s just breastfeeding in hopes they’ll go down. I would.

  33. Nev says:

    Kourtney is an amazing Mom. Also so beautiful.

  34. Amy says:

    If this whole saga were fiction, no one would believe it.

  35. Murphy says:

    black diamonds are such a cop out

  36. Thiajoka says:

    Women requiring “push presents” have set women’s rights back at least a century. Well, not really, but they make me very ashamed of them.

  37. Mew says:

    “she loves whipping out her massive mammaries for baby suckling time” WTF honestly?!? Could there be any more disturbing way to write “she likes breasfeeding”? Like all the sudden it’s some sort of porn to give food to baby? WTF media?!

  38. Janet says:

    I finally saw a photo of the baby. She is beautiful and looks a lot like Kim.

  39. Joanna says:

    cmon if she was engaged, it’d be a special on E or something. and does anyone really buy that she changes diapers? beyotch, please! the only reason she’s laying low is because she’s got a deal with somebody going on and they’re keeping quiet so they’ll get a big payout. whoever they’re giving the exclusive to prob demanded kk and kanye keep stuff quiet so when the article/photoshoot/tv special, whatever, comes out, it will get the most publicity.by keeping quiet, they’ll create more excitement when they decide to go public. people are really naive if they think this beyotch isn’t going to milk this baby for all it’s worth.

  40. Mary says:

    She had it early because she couldnt stand being pregnant one more second. I truly feel sorry for this kid.

  41. PHD Gossip says:

    lets all observe how there were no Paps outside the hospital upon discharge. The press is only around her cuz she calls them all the time.

  42. ms. deneuve says:

    Yeah, he knows her well, rather than a present partner during pregnancy and in life he is going to continue to give her presents to make her feel relevant. that baby is doomed.

  43. Kathryn says:

    I just have to make a comment about the name North West. It’s totally their choice, but my last name is Greene and I am so thankful my parents didn’t name me Lime, Chartreuse, Hunter, Avocado, Emerald, Neon, or something equally ridiculous.

  44. Paloma says:

    She wants a diamond equal to that monstrosity she wore last go round. She might traipse around with Kanye for awhile, but she’s an LA girl with her family there, and that won’t last for long.

  45. Dawn says:

    It is my sincere wish that this is indeed the case. Kimmode gets her way but Kanye makes her move to Paris to never be heard from again. And then when his career starts to fail due to the fact that people are getting tired of his screaming mu-fu ways telling others how to live when he himself lives the exact life he is screaming about. You can bet that there is a younger equally as talented yet hungrier rapper waiting to jump on Kanye and his bull shit. You just can’t make it up, truly. I never saw any two people who deserve each other more than these two. They are the most ugly of people inside and out.

  46. jc126 says:

    No, he did not propose. I bet he wakes up everyday wishing he never met her.

  47. pnichols says:

    Wait I thought they were engaged??

  48. Carolyn says:

    Kanye will only propose if PMK blackmails him with something.

    Those who think this relationship is real has rocks in their head.

  49. lady_luck says:

    A “push present”. I can’t get my head round that one. Kanye is basically saying: “thank you for being the incubator for my procreating. Run along now…” I find his attitude towards Kim, and especially the fact that he controlled the name choice of the baby, to be evidently controlling.

  50. truthful says:

    all I could do is laugh as the rainbow of sugar encrusted lies pepper the airwaves..

    Pimp Mama is in full mode, smdh

  51. Emily says:

    I hate fake proposal news.. it’s so uncomfortable…
    No… my boyfriend and father of my child did NOT propose to me.. thanks for rubbing it in!
