No surprise, Kris Jenner is over the moon.

After asking Kris for her daughter's hand in marriage, Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian on Monday night—and now they're engaged!

"A match made in heaven!" Kris called the betrothed couple, exclusively telling E! News, "I am so happy for both of my kids, Kim and Kanye."

It's been no secret that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch just adores her future son-in-law, whom she playfully called her "roommate" while he and Kim were bunking at the Jenner family homestead after the birth of their daughter, North.

"I love him so much, and he's such an amazing boyfriend to Kim and a great dad and a wonderful person," Kris raved about Kanye on Hello Ross earlier this month.

"He's creative and he's an amazing, amazing human being, he really is. And he doesn't always do interviews and get the chance to realy express himself like that, so I was really glad that I got a chance to sit down and talk with him," she said, referring to Kanye's appearance on her talk show, where he opened up about his relationship with Kim (love at first sight, years ago!) and showed off the first picture of North for the public.

"And it made me so happy that, you know, you guys got to see the Kanye that I know at home," Kris added.

"It's just a really delicious time with those kids...and [Kim's] just the best mom in the world, they're really great parents," she also told E! News recently. More than a year ago, meanwhile, she was already telling us that she had never seen Kim so happy.

She also advised them—hypothetically, at the time—to take their nuptials out of town.

"My advice as a manager would be get out of town as fast as you can and go to a secret location," she said, smiling. "But you know, I might have a different opinion tomorrow. You just never know."

We can't wait to hear her opinion now, a year later.

And Kanye, apparently not content with just being an "amazing boyfriend," took steps to remedy that tonight. He rented out AT&T Park in San Francisco and surprised Kim on her 33rd birthday with a proposal, which included a 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring.

After she had said yes, family and friends came rushing out of the dugout for hugs and congratulations as fireworks exploded and a 50-piece orchestra played.

Talk about fielding a winning team!
