The reality star reportedly shelled out in access of $100,000 on her four day stay at the hospital.
A source told The Sun; ‘Kanye wasted no money in making sure Kim had the best of everything while she’s in hospital. He has spent half a million on a ring as a push present and had it designed months ago in preparation,” according to The Sun. He’s even more in love with her now than ever and they can’t wait to get married.’
