Bruce Jenner will walk Kim Kardashian down the aisle at a lavish wedding, formally presenting her to future hubby Kanye West ... TMZ has learned.
Kim considers Bruce to be her dad, and she always planned on having him give her away ... just like he did when she married Kris Humphries.
Sources tell us as far as Kim is concerned ... it doesn't matter what Bruce's relationship is with Kris ... she would never consider excluding Bruce from such a position of honor.
So let's review the irony. As TMZ first reported ... Bruce was not invited to the surprise engagement -- it's still unclear whether Kanye or Kris made that decision -- although it seems like it was Kris.
The walk will be sooner rather than later. As we reported ... Kim and Kanye plan to tie the knot soon.
