(Newser) – They're getting hitched: Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian last night (her 33rd birthday) at a baseball stadium, E! reports. But he didn't do it the way us mere mortals would have: Rather, he rented out San Francisco's AT&T Park and hired a 50-piece orchestra to play a Lana Del Rey song and then, of course, a song of his own, the Daily Mail reports. The scoreboard flashed, "PLEEESE MARRY MEEE!!!," Kim said yes, Kanye put a 15-carat diamond ring on her finger, fireworks went off, and Kim's friends and family appeared from the dugouts. (Click to see pictures, including the ring.)

West had earlier asked Kim's mom, Kris Jenner, for permission to marry Kim, and she tells E! that it's "a match made in heaven. I am so happy for both of my kids, Kim and Kanye." But apparently the drama has already begun: A source tells the Daily Mail the Kardashians are "already debating" who will walk Kim down the aisle. Kris wants son Rob to do it, as opposed to hubby Bruce, from whom she's currently separated. "But Kim and the girls are backing Bruce, they still see him as their father," the source says. (Meanwhile, a source tells Radar that Kim and Kanye are talking about having another baby "right away.")
