Well that escalated quickly. Kanye West is reportedly engaged to Kim Kardashian, having gone down on one knee and popped the big question mere days after she gave birth to their first child North.

Although Kanye didn't have an engagement ring, he did give his fiancee a £500,000 rare black and tiger-stripe diamond ring as a 'push present' to commemorate daughter North's birth and the couple are apparently planning a September wedding in Paris.

An insider told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: '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.'

It is reported Kanye spared no expense while taking care of the new mother during her pregnancy, including a personal labour coach costing more than £3,000 a day. The couple also rented three deluxe suites - which cost over £2,500 per night each - which had three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a personal chef.
