Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian on Monday, Oct. 21—exactly five days after she posted her sexiest selfie ever.

Now, if you ask Ellen DeGeneres, that unfiltered Instagram shot of Kim's perfectly-proportioned post-baby body is what made Kanye realize he had to ask North Wests mama to marry him!

"Obviously Kanye saw that and thought, 'Well there's my soulmate,'" Ellen quipped on an episode of her talk show airing Wednesday, Oct. 23. "And he decided to propose!"

Looking at the snap of Kim's enviable figure, Ellen said laughingly, "That is crazy. I wear more than that when I'm naked!"

The comedian, who married Portia De Rossi in August 2008, also gave some spousal advice to Yeezy. "When you start with a stadium proposal, that's gonna be hard to top," she said. "That's why when I proposed to Portia we were on a riding lawn mower and I gave her 12 carrots. Oh, not a ring. Just carrots. I gave her carrots."

"[Kanye] did it in a very traditional way," she said. "He got down on one knee after renting out an entire baseball stadium in San Francisco. And then gave her a 15 carat diamond ring. Fifteen carats. That's bigger than their baby."

"I don't know where is he gonna go from there?" she reasoned. "Next year he's gonna have to rent out an even bigger stadium and she's gonna have to take a picture in even less clothes."

Hey, Kimye will find a way! In all seriousness, though, Ellen sent the couple her best wishes, saying, "Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. West. I rented out this whole studio for you and I'm giving you this 15-carat dance!"

Priceless!
