Engaged Kim Kardashian’s First Interview: I’m Marrying “My Best Friend”

Wherever he is, we hope the newly engaged Kanye West is patting himself on the back for a proposal of truly Yeezus proportions. The surprise engagement featured a 50-piece orchestra, a 15-carat diamond, and one happy bride-to-be.

“Last night was truly magical!!!” Kim tells E! News in her first interview since the big night. “I am the luckiest girl in the world!” Even more sweet, the new mom says now “I get to marry my best friend!”

Kim already made it known how thrilled she was to be engaged to Kanye via the power of social media. ““YES!!!,” she tweeted on October 22 with a photo of her gigantic diamond ring and Kanye’s romantic plea of “Pleeease marry meee!!!” glowing on a big screen in the background.

The couple, who’ve been dating for more than a year and a half, welcomed daughter North West on June 15 (the four-month-old, in case you were wondering, was in San Francisco last night but not in attendance at the proposal).

Despite rumors Kanye would never pop the question, preferring the term “partners” to “husband and wife,” 'Ye made it clear last night that particular line of gossip was nothing but hogwash. Kanye seems totally committed to making his way down the aisle with the mother of his beautiful baby girl. More power to you, guys!

What do you make of the proposal? Sound off in the comments below!
