Break out the champagne and the party hats folks, there is going to be a Mr. and Mrs. Yeezy.

Rapper Kanye West proposed to television personality Kim Kardashian Monday at the AT&T Park, home to the San Francisco Giants, in San Francisco.

Because we care, right?

E! News reported West rented out the stadium and popped the question in front of family and friends, hiring an orchestra to accompany the moment as the words “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” appeared on the Giants scoreboard.

Whether this was meant to be cute or a sheer cry of desperation is up for debate.

The gift of marriage was proposed on Kardashian’s 33rd birthday, because a Target gift card wouldn’t suffice.

Kardashian posted a picture of the ring in question on her Instagram account Tuesday. The screen’s message from the previous night displayed in the background along with Kardashian’s simple caption of “YES!!!”

This is West’s second engagement, after he was previously engaged to designer Alexis Phifer from 2006 to 2008, and Kardashian’s third. The reported 15-carat engagement ring is by Lorraine Schwartz, the same jeweler of her last engagement ring, given to her by NBA player Kris Humphries.

With Kardashian being twice-divorced, and going by West’s own advice back in 2005, if he “ain’t no punk holla,” then he’ll want that prenuptial agreement.

With E! News as the breeding ground for all things Kardashian, expect coverage over every tiny detail that will answer the questions “everyone” has on their minds.

What dress will she be wearing? Will he be wearing his own designer shoes or hers? How many times over could your tuition be paid with the cost of their wedding?

West and Kardashian began dating in early 2012, despite Kardashian still being legally married to Humphries. The two were only married 72 days before filing for divorce, and Kardashian and Humphries’ divorce was finalized June 3, 12 days prior to the birth of West and Kardashian’s daughter, North West.

Hopefully this marriage will end the Kardashian curse, both for Kardashian herself and for us having to hear about it. Recently, Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, was reported by E! News as separating from Bruce Jenner, her husband of 22 years, and her younger sister, Khloé, continues to be estranged to NBA player Lamar Odom, her husband since 2009, who last played for the Los Angeles Clippers.
