It has now been claimed that the pair may have faked their extravagant engagement for Kim and her family's E! reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Although the long-awaited proposal scene only hit screens in the US on Sunday February 17, 2013, eagle-eyed viewers spotted Kim, wearing her glittering Lorraine Schwartz 15-carat diamond ring in the previous week's episode - 'A Surprise Engagement Pt. 1' - which aired on Sunday February 9, 2013:

Radar Online points out that Kim was seen wearing the dazzling band in a scene that showed her putting away clothes for the couple's baby daughter, North 'Nori' West
A representative for Kim Kardashian denied the claims to MailOnline.
This comes amid falling viewing figures of late, with recent shows averaging around 2.4million - half a million fewer viewers than weekly episodes during peak seasons.
But in spite of the somewhat lacklustre ratings, the E! series has reportedly been renewed for a further three seasons in a deal worth an alleged $40million.
