New parents Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are reportedly set to wed this September in Paris.

Rapper Kanye West has, according to reports, asked his reality TV star girlfriend Kim Kardashian to be his wife.

The proposal is said to have taken place soon after Kim gave birth to the couple’s first child, North West.

The Sun newspaper reckons the couple are planning a September wedding in Paris. They also report that Kanye is yet to buy Kim an engagement ring but has given her a £500,000 black and tiger-stripe diamond ring to mark the birth their daughter.

A source said: "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."
