Let the wedding planning commence!
While celebrating Kim Kardashian’s 33rd birthday at the AT&T Park in San Francisco last night, Oct. 21, her boyfriend Kanye West presented her with a diamond engagement ring and asked for her hand in marriage in front of their close friends and family – and she said, “Yes!”
Since they began dating in April 2012, the now-engaged couple have been through so much. For instance, dealing with Kim’s divorce from Kris Humphries (whew – that’s finally over!) and their surprise pregnancy!

During the last few months leading up to the engagement, Kanye, 36, hasn’t been able to stop gushing about his leading lady, with whom he welcomed daughter North on June 15. We’ve put together some of his best quotes about the bombshell below:
On Being in Love With Kim at First Sight: "Definitely… I was in love with her before I was ever able to talk with her."
On Kim Taking Fashion Advice From Him: "For her to take that risk in front of the world, it just shows you how much she loves me. And how much she actually loves the opportunity to learn. You got, like, a million companies saying, 'This is impacting your brand! This is impacting your fans! And blah blah blah.' But she still sees this light of beauty."

On the Impact She's Had on Him: “She gave me everything. She gave me a family. She gave me a support system. She was in a powerful enough situation where she could love me without asking me for money, which is really hard for me to find.”
On Why He Went on Her Reality Show: "Oh, that's just all for love. It's simply that. At a certain point, or always, love is more important than any branding or any set of cool people, or attempting to impress anyone. Because true love is just the way you feel. ... Thoughts and feelings can disagree sometimes."
On Being in Love With Someone Constantly in the Public Eye: "I don’t care. I love this woman. So someone could say, ‘The paparazzi surround you — if you don’t like paparazzi why would you be with this person? Everyone knows you don’t like paparazzi, why would you be with this person?’ And I’m like ‘I’m with this person because I love this person and she’s worth it to me.’ She is my joy, and she brought my lead joy into the world. I love this person.”

On Always Wanting to Be With Kim: "There's times when I wasn't with [Kim], I wanted be with her so bad I thought about taking up sports. I just dreamed about being next to [Kim]. I don't want to start jumping up and down on the couch here."
