London - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are planning a commitment ceremony.

The reality TV star is hoping to tie the knot with her rapper boyfriend - with whom she is expecting her first child - in an unofficial beach front ceremony to celebrate their love in front of their close family and friends while she waits for her divorce from Kris Humphries to be finalised.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Kanye is very traditional. He'd have liked to marry Kim now they are having a baby. But with Kim still married to someone else, there is not much else he can do. It won't be official like a wedding because Kanye wants that to be extra special when the time comes.

"But they will still exchange rings - they just won't wear them on their wedding fingers. One of Kim's friends is lending them his £7 million Malibu beach mansion and the entire bash will take place there. It'll be a lot more low-key than a wedding."

Kim filed for divorce after just 72 days of being married to basketball player Kris, who she wed in a lavish ceremony televised on her E! reality show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'.

The glamorous 32-year-old star split from her first husband, music producer Damon Thomas, in 2004.

'Gold Digger' chart topper Kanye, 35, is allegedly planning a special fake honeymoon for Kim and will whisk her off to Italy for a long weekend after the no-expenses-spared bash in Malibu. - Bang Showbiz
