Date nights are just as important to couples like Kanye West and Kim Kardashian as they are anyone else. It doesn’t matter if you have been married one year or 20 years, continuing to date as a couple can strengthen a relationship and help open the doors of communication.
Though we sometimes see celebrities as different entities with their perfect little life, these stars have many of the same stresses as everyday people.
While Kim and Kanye have date nights like the rest of us, their dates look a little different. Let’s take a look at what Kim Kardashian and Kanye West do when it comes to date night.
How long have Kim Kardashian and Kanye West been together?
Kim and Kanye — or Kimye as their followers like to call them — first met when Kim was hanging out with singer Brandy as she recorded a song with Kanye. Kim was married to Damon Thomas at the time, so a relationship was out of the question. It wasn’t until 2012 that the couple began dating.
Kanye recently told Vogue during their 73 questions segment that he knew that he wanted to be with Kim from the first time he saw her in a paparazzi picture with Paris Hilton. At the time they began dating, Kim was still married to basketball player Kris Humphries.
Kim and Kanye got married in 2014 in a lavish wedding in Italy. The couple invited many celebrity friends to the affair including John Legend, Jaden Smith, and Serena Williams. Since tthen, the couple has welcomed four children. Their fourth child Psalm was just born via surrogate last month.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have stuck together through the hard times
There’s no question that Kanye has exhibited some erratic behavior over the past several years. The rapper recently revealed that he has been diagnosed with bipolar. Though he initially denied the diagnosis, he has since come to grips with his condition and learned to live with it.
Though his bipolar can make things difficult, Kim has been by his side every step of the way. She has admitted that medication doesn’t work for her husband and completely changes his personality. Together, as a couple, they have discovered what his triggers are and what they can do to prevent episodes.
Kanye isn’t the only one that has had to deal with health issues. Kim has endured some scary health ailments as well. After her first pregnancy, Kim developed a condition called placenta accreta. With placenta accreta, the placenta attaches too deep with the uterus, making it hard to deliver. Kim knew of the condition before getting pregnant with her second child but elected to get pregnant anyway. When it came to having more children, the couple elected to use a surrogate.
What do date nights look like for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West?
Okay. We are talking about Kim and Kanye. That means dates to Olive Garden just won’t do. Sow what do they do? For the couple’s fifth wedding anniversary, Kanye recently surprised his wife with a trip to Vegas to see Celine Dion.
It seems that the couple enjoys incorporating music into their dates. For Valentine’s day, Kanye surprised Kim with a saxophone performance from none other than Kenny G. Kanye reportedly filled the room with roses while Kenny G. stood in the middle playing.
When it comes to keeping it simple, the couple enjoys a quiet dinner on the riverfront. The reality stars were recently spotted at the celebrity-favorite restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica.
