Kim Kardashian is demanding a ring as a birthday gift from Kanye West, according to Ryan Seacrest. In fact, there are engagement rumors as the two went to Rome as the reality star turns 32.
"I think we could definitely see an update on this story on Monday," Ryan said. If anyone would know about the engagement, it would be Seacrest -- he's an executive producer of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and, as a result, tends to have the scoop on all the intimate details of the famous family.
But Seacrest is not the only one with details on the couple, who have been spotted smooching all around Rome on a vacation that seems to be aimed at celebrating Kardashian's birthday.
"It's only a matter of time before Kanye pops the question," a source supposedly in the know told Radar Online, adding that the couple are madly in love with each other and that West wants to spend the rest of his life with the reality star. "It's just a case of making sure the ring is perfect because she's his princess," that source said.
It might also be a case of waiting for the messy legal fallout from Kardashian's previous marriage to settle.
Not that anyone's counting, but if West does get down on one knee this Sunday, it would come as Kim's third engagement: she was wedded to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004 and then to pro basketballer Kris Humphries for a whopping 72 days between August and October of 2011.
Kardashian's divorce proceedings with Humphries have made headlines this year for their slow pace and bitter tenor, with some predicting that the divorce might not be granted until next year.
In September, Kardashian told Barbara Walters she is "technically" still married to Humphries and that anything she would "be in now would be a permanent relationship."
Still, it seems the couple are hoping to hear wedding bells in the near future.
Kardashian has said she "thinks" West is her "perfect match" and that she might want children with him.
