Kris Humphries proposes to socialite Kim Kardashian with rose petals

They’ve only been dating 6 months but Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have announced that they’re set to marry.

The romantic 6ft 9in basketball star wrote ‘Will you marry me?’ in rose petals on socialite Kim‘s bed and presented her with a 20.5 carat Lorraine Schwartz ring.

‘I didn’t expect this at all,’ says Kim, 30. ‘I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now.’

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star married music producer Damon Thomas when she was 20 but they divorced after 4 years together.

Kim, who began dating Kris, 26, shortly after her split from Halle Berry‘s ex Gabriel Aubry, has already toasted the engagement with her family.

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 tells People magazine.

‘Later that night at the party, my mom brought out two mini-horses, covered in glitter, for us! It was hysterical!’
