According to recent reports, the rapper has already proposed to the reality star after she gave birth to his daughter North West on June 15.
As The Sun writes, the 35-years-old star has not yet sealed the deal with an engagement ring, but he has splashed out £500,000 on a rare black and tiger-stripe diamond ring.
The rapper gave Kim, 32, the “push present” — a growing phenomenon in the US — to mark the occasion of the birth of the long awaited baby North.
The newborn parents were holed up in Cedars Sinai Hospital in Beverly Hills, California, for four days this week and spent more than £100,000 on medical bills and accommodation. They have since left for a secret location to start their new life with their child.
A source said: “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,” the source added.
Though reps for the celebrities have not confirmed the rumors, Kardashian has indicated she’s ready to tie the knot one more time.
“I do think I would get married again,” she told Ryan Seacrest in an April interview. “That’s what I’ve always wanted. And just because you think you find it and you realize that’s not it, I think I was brave enough to realize that quickly and not waste time.”
Kim’s infamous divorce to basketballer Kris Humphries was finalized June 3, despite their marriage ending 72 days after they wed Aug. 20, 2011.
A few months ago the pregnant star told reporters that she didn’t want to deliver a child while married to Kris Humphries.
“I do not want to be married to [Humphries] when I have my baby,” Kim explained in a declaration filed Jan. 24 in Los Angeles Superior Court.
“Immediately upon it becoming known to the public that I was pregnant…I began to see articles in the media with quotes attributed to [Humphries] stating that now that I am pregnant he has ‘got all the power,’ ‘that he is in control of my misery’ and that he is not going ‘to allow’ me to be divorced by the time I have my baby,” she continued in the filing.
“I am requesting the status of my marriage be determined now for not only my health and welfare but also for the health and well-being of my unborn child,” Kardashian stated.
The star went on, adding: “I firmly believe that an immediate dissolution of our marriage will help create a new, full life for me. One chapter will be officially over, and a new one can begin. The same should hold true for [Humphries].”
In April the scandalous divorced was finally finished with Humphries walking away with absolutely nothing after asking for upwards of $7 million in court.
“I’m glad for Kris and I both,” said Kim. “I am so glad we were able to come out with an agreement and move on for both of us.”
When asked whether she and West are rushing to the altar, Kim preplied: “Don’t you think I should slow down? I think I should slow down. I think I’m just really enjoying my time with Kanye right now and we want to have the baby… When you know how it’s going to be in the end, there is no need to really rush it right now.”
