The momager has famously adored her daughter’s boyfriend so it comes as no surprise that Kris is positively beaming over the news of the couple’s engagement.
“A match made in heaven!” Kris gushed to E! News about the recently-betrothed couple. “I am so happy for both of my kids, Kim and Kanye.”
This isn’t the first time Kris has publicly declared her love for the father of Kim’s 4-month-old daughter, North West. While appearing on Hello Ross earlier this month, the mom of five talked about how much she adored living with her “roommate” Kanye.
“He’s such an amazing boyfriend to Kim and a great dad and a wonderful person,” she said. “He’s creative and he’s an amazing, amazing human being, he really is.”
Kris wasn’t the only family member thrilled at the news of the couple’s engagement. Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter last night to express her excitement.
Kanye proposed to Kim last night, her 33rd birthday, by renting out AT&T Park in San Francisco and surprising her with a proposal (and a 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring). After saying yes, family and friends reportedly rushed out of the dugout while fireworks exploded overhead and 50-piece orchestra played around them. And no, we’re not joking — but who could expect Kanye to do anything less for the woman of his dreams?
