Newly married Chance The Rapper announces that he and his wife are expecting a baby girl
Chancelor Bennett, better known as Chance the Rapper, got married to his longtime girlfriend Kirsten Corley this month, and the photos were pretty incredible. Yet that's not the only news they're bringing to the table.
Chance and his wife apparently already got married back in December, with the Chicago Tribune reporting that they made things official with a civil ceremony at the Cook County clerk's office in Chicago. However, that didn't mean that they weren't going to have a glamorous wedding to go with it.
The happy couple tied the knot at Newport Beach, California, on Saturday. Along for the ride were 150 guests, including stars such as Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and comedian Dave Chappelle.
According to E! News, the bride and groom walked down the aisle as a string quartet played. Chance wore a white tuxedo, while Corley wore a white strapless gown.
Chance posted a photo from the reception, including old friends such as Chappelle, West, and gospel star Kirk Franklin. “Me and the men who mentored me,” he captioned the photo - which shows one of Kanye's rare public smiles.
Just days after the big event, there has been even more good news for the couple. Joining their now three-year-old daughter Kensli, will be another daughter - as Chance announced on Instagram this Thursday.
“We pregnant again. Its a girl. JESUS CHRIST. WE LOVE GOD,” the 25-year-old wrote, adding: “New baby droppin September.”
Earlier this month, Chance revealed the adorable story behind how he and Kirsten first met. He was only nine years old at the time back in 2003, and shared a photo of his now-wife from that very same day to start off the tale.
Sharing the story through a series of screenshots of the Notes app, he revealed that he first saw her when she and two other girls lip synced to Destiny's Child at a party. "Now I'm locking eyes with the prettiest girl I ever seen in my almost-a-decade of life on Earth," he said. "I really shouldn't even say locked eyes cause really, I was just staring at her."
His dad tried to get him to go up and perform with them, but he held back - and not just because he was nervous. "It's cause I knew I was gonna marry that girl," he wrote. "And I ain't wanna jump the gun."
Years later, they caught up again, reconnecting in 2012 and starting up a relationship together. Then, on July 4 last summer, he popped the question at a family barbeque, a moment that was caught on video and re-shared to Instagram.
His brother soon posted a photo of himself with the couple, which was where the news first dropped:
And then Chance confirmed it on Twitter:
After this latest news, we'll be starting the long wait until we see those first baby pics!
