Say this for Kanye West: He's so intent on making Kim Kardashian his bride that he has asked her to marry him — over and over again!
Problem is, Kim does not take Kanye seriously, and won't until he delivers his proposal with a little more pomp and circumstance.
"Kim has tried to discourage it, but Kanye has said he wants to marry her for years now," an insider tells OK!. "On more than one occasion he said, 'Kim, will you marry me?' He'd be dead serious if she'd say yes."
After Kanye's most recent proposal, while the pair were in L.A., Kim asked him where the engagement ring was. He got down on one knee and she got embarrassed, telling him to get up, and saying that she wasn't even officially divorced yet.
But Kanye, 34, wasn't kidding. He believes that, with persistence, he will eventually wear down Kim 31.
"I think he believes if he asks her 100 times, then eventually she'll say yes," says the insider.
