Kanye West is planning to marry his new fiancee Kim Kardashain next summer – and the special day will be a really big affair.

The rapper proposed to the mother of his baby daughter North on her 33rd birthday after taking over San Francisco’s AT&T Park baseball stadium last week, but he insists the couple’s nuptials will be an even bigger event, including “fighter jets.”

Appearing on Los Angeles radio show Big Boy Neighborhood on Monday, West quipped, “I gotta apologize to the race of males for turning it up so much.”

But he confesses that not everything went to plan when he got down on bended knee and asked Kardashian to be his bride.

The fussy star says, “They didn’t have the lights exactly how I wanted them to be.”

He also addressed reports suggesting the big proposal was staged for his fiancee’s reality TV show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” – and that she picked out the ring he ‘surprised’ her with, adding, “She (Kim) knew I was eventually going to ask her to marry me. I just had to get that ring right. I worked with four different jewellers. Three rings were made and only one actually hit the finger… I actually changed the ring the night before. That ring was less than four hours old when I gave it to her.”

He added, “I wanted to marry that girl from the first time I saw her. I just had to wait through a bunch of relationships to finally get my chance… It’s just patience. You know with certain things, you’re like, ‘Yo, this is what’s right for me, and this is what I should be doing’. And you gotta be patient.”
