The 10 biggest celebrity engagements of 2013
This year has been so full of news and announcements it can be hard to keep up, so we’ve decided to wrap up the top ten celebrity engagements for you.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Congrats, Kimye! Rapper Kanye West staged an elaborate proposal to his girlfriend Kim Kardashian earlier this week, on the same day as the reality starlet’s 33rd birthday. In between concerts on his ‘Yeezus’ tour, Kanye flew Kim to San Francisco, blindfolded her and took her to the AT&T Park baseball stadium.
At the stadium (which the ‘Gold Digger’ singer had rented out), a 50-piece orchestra performed his song ‘Knock You Down,’ followed by Lana Del Rey's ‘Young and Beautiful’ as the couple entered the grounds.
As Kanye got down on one knee to present Kim with a 15-carat diamond from Lorraine Schwartz (jealous, much?), the jumbotron flashed the message “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!.”
After the proposal, Kim’s family ran out of their hiding places to congratulate the happy couple while fireworks exploded into the night sky.
Lauren Conrad and William Tell
Reality TV star, author, blogger and our all-round girl crush, Lauren Conrad, shared the news of her engagement to law-student William Tell via her blog on October 13. The 27-year-old, who has been dating Tell, 33, since Valentine’s Day last year, wrote: “I am very excited to share with you guys that William and I got engaged over the weekend. I am beyond thrilled!”
While details of the proposal are yet to be revealed, the former ‘The Hills’ star did post a photo of her engagement ring on Instagram.
Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards
In what could be the cutest engagement of them all, One Direction star Zayn Malik proposed to his girlfriend Perrie Edwards, who is part of the band Little Mix, back in mid-August. Rumours first began to swirl when Perrie showed up to the London premiere of 1D’s movie ‘This Is Us’ with a three-stone diamond ring on her finger. The couple, who met on the set of ‘The X Factor’ in 2011 and officially started dating in April last year, took to Twitter to confirm the announcement shortly after.
