While Kim Kardashian was caught off guard when Kris Humphries proposed to her, Kim's parents, Kris and Bruce Jenner, were aware of Humphries' proposal plans because he asked for their permission a few days earlier.

PEOPLE is reporting that Kris revealed this information to the press conference.

"He came to Bruce and myself and asked us for Kim's hand in marriage, and it was really just so cute the way that he wanted to surprise her," Kris Jenner said.

Humphries reportedly was in Kim's bedroom on bended knee with red rose petals spelling out the all important question, "WILL YOU MARRY ME?"

The New Jersey Nets player proposed to the reality star with a $2 million rock from Lorraine Schwartz. The ring boasts a 16.5-carat emerald cut diamond in the center of two 2-carat trapezoid shaped stones, totaling 20.5 carats of "the highest clarity and color."
