Kim Kardashian isn't the only person to receive an engagement ring on her birthday. As exclusively reported by E! News on Monday, Oct. 21, Kanye West popped the question on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star's 33rd birthday after renting out AT&T Park in San Francisco. The rapper presented her with a 15-carat diamond ring by celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.

Justin Theroux used his 41st birthday as an opportunity to ask Jennifer Aniston for her hand in marriage—and she said yes! Since his August 2012 proposal, both stars have played coy when pressed for details about their big day. "We just want to do it when it's perfect, and we're not rushed, and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job," Aniston said in July 2013. "And, you know, we already feel married."

"Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement," the pop princess said in a statement. "I'll always adore him and we will remain great friends." Trawick, in turn, promised that they would be "close forever."
