Since meeting each other for the first time 16 years ago, Chance the Rapper knew,right then and there, that Corley was the woman he was bound to marry.

It was love at first sight for Chance the Rapper

Chancelor Bennett, aka Chance the Rapper, always knew Kristen Corley was the one ever since he first laid eyes on her back in 2003.

In a recent Twitter post, Chance the Rapper shared how exactly he met his now wife.

The rapper started out by revealing he met Kristen Corley for the very first time at his mother’s work party when he was 9-years-old.

Bennett shared with fans that as he was playing his gameboy and eating candy, everyone was told to make room for a performance by an all girls trio.

Then, Chance the Rapper laid eyes on Corley as she and the two other girls danced and sang along to “Independent Women” by Destiny’s Child.

“Now I’m locking eyes with the prettiest girl I ever seen in my almost-a-decade of life on earth,” he described. “I really shouldn’t even say locked eyes cause really, I was just staring at her; as she and her girls were conquering this choreography and mastering the art of lip-synching in a way even the most professional performers have yet to accomplish.”

Chance revealed that he was instantly entranced by Kristen Corley and knew in that moment, she was the girl he was going to marry.

“I knew I was gonna marry that girl. And I ain’t wanna jump the gun,” he wrote. “16 years later it’s happening. This [weekend] is the time, and the place is my wedding. I’m gonna dance with my wife because this is my destiny.”

Chance stuck by his word all these years

Ten years after Chance the Rapper laid eyes on Kristen Corley for the very first time, the two began dating.

In September 2015, the couple welcomed their first daughter together, Kensli, who Chance and Kristen decided to keep off of social media until she was a little older.

Chance and Kristen have legally been married since December after they wed in a civil ceremony at the Cook County clerk’s office in Chicago.

Since friends and family were not present during that ceremony, the couple exchanged vows again in front of 150 guests.

The ceremony was held under a rotunda overlooking the ocean. Not only were close friends and family in attendance, a few well-known celebrities were also there to see Chance marry his longtime girlfriend.

Guest included Dave Chapelle, Kirk Franklin, as well as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

An eyewitness revealed that, “after the ceremony, Kim and Kanye hung out with Dave Chappelle on the lawn. They were all laughing together and having a great time. They posed for photos and Chance came over to chat. They congratulated him and gave him hugs,” the eyewitness continued. “Kim and Kanye were offered some champagne. Kim passed but Kanye took a glass. Then they walked inside together for the reception. It looked like they were very happy to be there and to see their friend get married. They both never stopped smiling.”

A “congratulations” is definitely in order for Chance the Rapper and Kristen Corley or better yet, Mr. and Mrs. Bennett!
