New Jersey Nets' Kris Humphries engaged to Kim Kardashian
Are the New Jersey Nets trying to become the Lakers of the Eastern Conference? They already have a pair of players who won NBA championship rings in L.A. (Jordan Farmar and Sasha Vujacic). And soon they also will have their very own Kardashian as a team wife, just like the Lakers.
Humphries, 26, proposed to Kardashian, 30, last week on bended knee in the bedroom of her Beverly Hills home with the words "will you marry me?" spelled out in rose petals, the magazine said. He also gave her a 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring.
"I just knew I wanted it to be big," said Humphries, who averaged career highs in points (10.0) and rebounds (10.4) in his seventh NBA season last year.
The magazine also reports that the couple celebrated their engagement with an "intimate family celebration" that included two mini-horses covered in glitter.
No word yet if Kim and Kris will get their own spinoff show, like "Khloe and Lamar."
