Los Angeles - Kris Jenner has congratulated her daughter Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on their engagement.

The 57-year-old TV star is absolutely thrilled for "both" of her kids and is delighted that Kanye has finally popped the question.

Kris told E! News: "A match made in heaven! I am so happy for both of my kids, Kim and Kanye."

Kanye rented out the whole of San Francisco's AT&T Park for his proposal on Monday, which was also Kim's 33rd birthday.

The 36-year-old hip-hop star got down on one knee to pop the question with a 15-carat diamond ring created by celebrity jeweller Lorraine Schwartz as fireworks exploded in the sky.

Kanye even arranged for the message "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!! (sic)" to flash on the scoreboard at the home of baseball team the San Francisco Giants.

Two weddings

Kim has shown off her impressive sparkler on photo sharing website Instagram and she can't stop smiling in the posted picture.

Although the couple have only just got engaged they are said to already be planning to have two weddings.

Kim wants to tie the knot in California, while Kanye wants her to walk down the aisle in Paris, France, because that's the place their four-month-old daughter North was conceived and rather than compromise they are going to have two ceremonies.

A source exclusively told Yahoo! omg: "Kim wants to get married on the cliffs overlooking the sea in California, she's planning a night time wedding under the stars.

"But Kanye wants to marry in Paris, flying everyone over to the hotel Le Meurice on two private jets. For him, it's the home of romance and he wants to marry on Parisian soil, it's symbolic for him and it's the place he considers to have been the biggest inspiration in his life.

"They've been surprisingly calm about it, with Kanye telling Kim, 'There's no conflict, we'll have a wedding for you and one for me.' ... Kim and her planners are planning the biggest and best weddings money can buy, finance is no object." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
