Good to see Kanye West took Beyonce's advice - he liked it so he put a ring on it. Kim Kardashian's finger, that is.

That's right - Kanye got down on one knee and presented Kim with a rather snazzy 15-carat diamond ring by celeb jeweller Lorraine Schwartz on Monday night, which was Kim's 33rd birthday.

Kanye asked his baby mama Kim to be his wife in front of all their family and friends at the AT&T Park in San Franciso - Kanye rented the stadium for the night specially for the birthday/proposal. He even asked Kim's mum/momager Kris Jenner for permission before he proposed. Probably not a bad idea considering...

So it looks like Kim and Kanye - who she calls her "best friend" - could be heading towards their very own happily ever after. But Kim's lovelife hasn't always been so straight forward - she's had her fair share of boyfriends/husbands/sex tape co-stars in the past. But what did they all do wrong that Kanye's doing so right?

Let's take a look back at Kim's ex-boyfriends and ex-husbands and see if we can figure it out.

You might not have heard of this guy - Kim likes to pretend her first marriage never actually happened. Music producer Damon Thomas married Kim in 2000 when she was just 19-years-old. The marriage ended four years later when Kim accused Damon of abuse.

So this is the infamous Ray J. You may remember rapper Ray as the guy who had sex with Kim on tape and made her a household name. Their bitter break-up led to him allegedly having something to do with the tape getting leaked. Oops...

98 Degrees star Nick Lachey had a brief fling with Kim in 2006. You could say it was a bit of a rebound, seeing as Nick had just divorced Jessica Simpson. Awkward...

Nick later went on to poke fun at Kim when he and his wife, Vanessa Minnillo, dressed as Kim and Kris Humphries (you'll hear more about him shortly) for Halloween.

Kim first got a taste for sportsmen when she started dating NFL running back Reggie Bush, who played for the New Orleans Saints at the time, in 2007.

Their on-off relationship wasn't much to write home about and fizzled out after three years.

Kim dated the NFL's Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin for a few months in 2010.

And that's about it really...

And then there was Kris Humphries...

Kim was married to Kris Humphries for 72 days after getting engaged just five months after meeting. Their $20million wedding was televised as part of a three-part special on her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Kim and Kris battled their divorce out for 16 months until he finally signed the papers in April 2013, paving the way for Kanye to propose.

Hooray!
