Kim Kardashian, Nets' Kris Humphries engaged

Wed, May 25

NEW YORK -- New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries will join the Kardashian clan.

People magazine reported Wednesday that reality star Kim Kardashian is engaged to Humphries, her boyfriend of six months. Kardashian confirmed the engagement on Twitter.

Sister Khloe Kardashian and Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom were married in 2009.

Kim Kardashian told People that she was in "shock" when she entered her Beverly Hills, Calif., home last week to discover Humphries on bended knee with "will you marry me" spelled out in rose petals.

Humphries, 26, gave Kardashian, 30, a 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring.

The family stars in the E! reality show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and spinoffs, including "Khloe and Lamar."

Humphries played collegiately at Minnesota. He averaged 10 points and 10.4 rebounds per game last season for the Nets. Both were career highs.

He's also played for Utah, Toronto and Dallas.
