Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian after she gave birth to their daughter North, it has been claimed.
The 36-year-old rapper asked the reality star to marry him just days after the couple welcomed their first child, The Sun reports.
The pair are said to be planning a September wedding in Paris.
While Kanye is said to have asked Kim to marry him without an engagement ring he is said to have spent 500,000 on a rare black diamond ring, as a gift to mark the birth of their child.
A spokesperson for Kim was unavailable for comment on Sunday.
Kim gave birth to her first child Saturday 15 June – a month ahead of her due date.
Mail Online exclusively revealed that the reality star had been admitted to hospital in Beverly Hills the night before.
Kim had taken out a birthing suite at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center – a hospital of choice among many celebrities including Britney Spears, Victoria Beckham and Jessica Simpson.
The reality star is said to have splashed out more than $100,000 on her four day stay at the hospital.
A source told The Sun; ‘Kanye wasted no money in making sure Kim had the best of everything while she’s in hospital.’
‘He has spent half a million on a ring as a push present and had it designed months ago in preparation.’
He’s even more in love with her now than ever and they can’t wait to get married.’
Kim only finialized her divorce from her second husband Kris Humphries earlier this month after a long and bitter legal battle.
Their marriage lasted just 72 days before Kim filed for divorce in October 2011.
