Los Angeles: Reality star Kim Kardashian is engaged to her boyfriend Kris Humphries after the basketball player popped the question last week.

It was a dream come true for the 30-year-old socialite when she walked into her Beverly Hills home on May 18. New Jersey Nets forward Humphries, her boyfriend of six months, was waiting in her bedroom on bended knee with four words written in red rose petals, "Will you marry me?"

"I didn`t expect this at all. I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now," said Kardashian.

Humphries popped the question with a custom-designed, 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond sparkler, reported People magazine.

"I just knew I wanted it to be big," said Humphries, 26, who, with the help of Kardashian`s mom Kris Jenner, planned an intimate family celebration later that evening.

"Kris really didn`t want a big celebration, but he had jokingly told my mom he`d be fine if there were mini-horses there. Later that night at the party, my mom brought out two mini-horses, covered in glitter, for us! It was hysterical!" said Kardashian.
