She is still legally married to Kris Humphries but that hasn’t ended speculation that Kim Kardashian is set to wed rapper boyfriend Kanye West, fuelled by reports that the ‘Gold Digger’ star has been designing her engagement ring along with help from sisters Khloe and Kourtney and mum Kris Jenner.
The ‘Church In The Wild’ star is said to be desperate to get the ring right and that after years of waiting to date his friend doesn’t feel like they are rushing into anything according to Closer Magazine.
Reality TV star Kimmie is no stranger to marriage, having tied the knot with NBA star Kris last august although their happily ever after lasted only 72 days.
Despite her past, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star hasn't been put off marriage and claims she now knows that Kanye is 'the one'.
"When she married Kris, she knew deep down it wasn't right, but she says she knows she wants to spend the rest of her life with Kanye and thinks he feels the same. She wants kids soon and they're both traditional, so marriage seems a natural step," the insider rtold Closer magazine.
Kim is hoping to wrap up her messy divorce with Kris Humphries soon so that the couple can tie the knot, while Kanye has enlisted the help of his future sisters in law to make sure it is the perfect rock.
"Kanye asked Kim's mum Kris for ring advice, but she told him to go to her sisters Khloé and Kourtney, as Kim's told them she wants something very different to her last ring. Kanye has a New York jewellery designer and they've been talking ideas." The source explained.
Despite knowing that she wants to spend the rest of her life with the ‘Stronger’ singer, Kim is said to be wary of getting engaged too soon or making a big deal out of the wedding.
She faced backlash from fans when she announced her split from Kris who claimed she faked the romance for TV ratings, a fact she has strenuously denied.
"She worries what people will think, but friends and family have told her to do what makes her happy," the insider revealed. "They're waiting for the divorce, then it's likely they'll get engaged."
To minimise criticism the couple are said to be opting for a quiet wedding in Los Angeles.
The source added: "She and Kanye have said, if they get married, they'd want something small on the beach in L.A. It's as if Kim's realised it's the man, not the big blinging day, that makes a marriage."
The couple will no doubt make their home in the city surrounded by Kim’s family who have been more than welcoming to the rapper. They both recently put their LA homes on the market a sign that they are moving quickly with their plans.
