Kim Kardashian loves to use her Instagram account to show off her body. But this week, the reality star used it for a different purpose.
Kim Kardashian, who became engaged to Kanye West two years ago, used this anniversary for her Throwback Thursday-themed image posts.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were involved in a whirlwind romance at the time. While still technically married to Chris Humphries, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West began dating in April 2012. Before the year was out, Kim Kardashian announced her pregnancy in December 2012. Kim Kardashian gave birth to baby girl North West on June 15, 2013 and two years ago, on October 21, 2013, Kanye West proposed to her. The two were eventually married on May 24, 2014.
In honor of her engagement anniversary, Kim Kardashian posted a number of pictures. The first shows a blurry Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in front of a large TV screen with the sentence “Pleeease marry meee!!!” The photograph was taken inside San Francisco’s AT&T Park, which Kanye West had rented out for the occasion.
Kim Kardashian also posted a picture taken of her engagement ring, a 15-carat square diamond ring designed by Lorraine Schwartz. Other pictures posted captured the grand scale of the engagement evening. An orchestra can be seen playing in the outfield of the baseball stadium on one picture. In another, Kim Kardashian has her hands on Kanye West’s face, mid kiss, with her new engagement ring featuring prominently in the picture.
As well as posting her pictures to Instagram, Kim Kardashian also made them available on her new app, which was launched in September.
October 21 just happens to be Kim Kardashian’s birthday as well, and like his surprise wedding proposal, Kanye West was again able to surprise Kim Kardashian on her birthday this year. As Slate reports, Kanye West rented out a movie theater in order to watch Apple founder bio pic Steve Jobs, directed by Danny Boyle.
The theme of the party was pregnancy, as Kim Kardashian is pregnant with her second child, a boy due in December. The cake had three tiers and a sign wishing “Happy pregnant Birthday Kim.” It was surrounded by white roses. As guests arrived, they were given fake pregnancy bellies that matched Kim Kardashian who is now in her seventh month of pregnancy.
As her due date comes closer, Kim Kardashian is thinking to the future and especially how daughter North will react to the new addition. On her website, kimkardashianwest.com, Kim wrote about her feelings on the subject.
“Not going to lie, I’m a little nervous about bringing baby No. 2 into the mix. But Kanye and I are doing the best we can to prepare North!”
Kim Kardashian elaborated on how she and Kanye are working with North to prepare her to be a big sister. That’s also to help offset any feelings North may have about sharing her parents with a new sibling.
“We read books with her about getting a baby brother and a new sibling all the time! We always say goodnight to baby brother… I’m really trying to spend most of my time at home so we have this special bonding time. Any other moms have this nervous feeling?”
While Kim Kardashian ensures she spends enough time with her daughter, she also makes sure that her date nights with husband Kanye West remain intact, Kim Kardashian wrote on her website.
“I’m busy preparing for the baby but it’s still SO important to me to make time for my husband.”
Kim Kardashian has used her Instagram account for several reasons, including to debunk theories about her pregnancy by posing in the nude. She’s also been in trouble for posting pictures of medication she took for morning sickness without the required FDA side effects.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian may have only been together for less than four years, but they have accomplished quite a lot together in that time. From being engaged to married, from pregnancy to birth to a new pregnancy, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have celebrated each milestone exactly how they live their lives: with grand gestures and photographic evidence.
