Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries Engaged

'I didn't expect this at all,' Kardashian tells

Kris Humphries put a ring on it. The basketballer popped the question to reality starlet Kim Kardashian last week, and she, of course, said yes.

The two announced their engagement on Wednesday (May 25) in the least understated way possible: on the cover of People magazine. According to, Humphries, a forward for the New Jersey Nets, asked Kim to marry him on May 18 at her Beverly Hills home.

"I didn't expect this at all," Kardashian said of the proposal, which included Humphries writing out "Will You Marry Me?" in rose petals in her bedroom. "I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now."

The couple has been dating for a little more than six months. He asked Kardashian to marry him with a 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond. "I just knew I wanted it to be big," he said. Later on, the couple celebrated their engagement with a Kardashian family party.

"Kris really didn't want a big celebration, but he had jokingly told my mom he'd be fine if there were mini-horses there," she said. "Later that night at the party, my mom brought out two mini-horses, covered in glitter, for us! It was hysterical!"

Humphries is the latest basketball star to marry into the Kardashian clan. Little sister Khloe is married to Lakers player Lamar Odom.

As for her relationship with Humphries, Kim explained, "I'm really happy and in a really good place. It's different [with Humphries] because he lets me be me." Kardashian recently told Ryan Seacrest, "It's hard to balance it all and he just makes everything calm ... He makes me happy and smile and laugh all the time."
