Baby On the Way
The rapper surprises concert goers at his Atlantic City show when he reveals Kardashian is pregnant. "It's true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby," she confirms in a blog post. "We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his mom and my dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us."
It's a Girl!
Kardashian confirms she and West are expecting a daughter on the eighth season premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. "I'm so excited we're having a girl … I know that's really what Kanye has always wanted," she says on the show, which airs the same day as her baby shower. "Kim and Kanye were so cute – he rubbed her belly," Kardashian's aunt Karen Houghton told PEOPLE. "They're just really blessed. It's such a happy day."
Kardashian gives birth a few weeks before her expected July due date to the couple's first child – daughter North. "She's doing great and she's beautiful! So very exciting," Kardashian's mom Kris Jenner tells HLN.
During an appearance on the season finale of Kris Jenner's talk show, West debuts a photo of daughter North, now more than 2-months-old. "To stop all the noise, I thought it'd be really cool, on her grandmother's season finale, to bring a picture of North," he says, adding that he and Kardashian "have not attempted to get paid" for the image. The rapper goes on to declare his love for the reality starlet, saying, "She's my joy and she brought my new joy into the world."
Ring-ing It In
Four months after welcoming daughter North, West surprises Kardashian on her 33rd birthday with a proposal, renting out San Francisco's AT&T Park and flashing the words "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!!" on a big screen. The rapper presents Kardashian with a 15-carat square diamond ring by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.

Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can't even breath!" Kardashian writes on Instagram.
I Thee Wed
In an epic weekend that spans from Paris to Florence, West and Kardashian tie the knot in front of family and friends during a private ceremony at Italy's Forte di Belvedere, a 16th century fort known for its sweeping panoramas and the contemporary art exhibitions it hosts. The spot is sentimental for the pair, as West reveals Florence is where he and Kardashian conceived daughter North.
