Reality TV beauty, Kim Kardashian is engaged to her basketball honey, New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries. On May 18, Humphries surprised Kim K in her Beverly Hills abode, by presenting her with a 20.5 carat diamond, on bended knee. Later that night, Mama Kris Jenner had an intimate family celebration planned to honor the newly engaged couple.

The Kardashians spent no time waiting to announce the news, blowing up their twitter pages with congratulations and excitement. 30 year old Kim and 26 year old Humphries have been dating for 6 months, and though no date is set yet, the family is hoping for a longer preparation period than the 9 days Khloe and Lamar gave wedding planners. Kris Jenner tweeted, "YIIPPEEE SO HAPPY!!!!!" PALEEEEEZE GIVE ME MORE THAN 9 DAYS!!!!!!!! I AM BEGGING..."

Kim’s 20.5 carat rock, designed by Lorraine Schwartz, surpasses that of the new Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton’s, 18 carat blue sapphire.
