Chance the Rapper got down on one knee over the Fourth of July holiday, proposing to longtime girlfriend Kirsten Corley. Although the mother of 2-year-old Kensli keeps her social media locked up and maintains a very private relationship with her rapper fiancé, here are five facts about Corley:
1. She Was a Model
The elusive Corley can be spotted in a 2014 editorial shoot, wearing T by Alexander Wang. She looks like a pro donning an oversize white tee and boxy maroon bomber jacket from the Autumn/Winter collection.
2. She’s a Gemini
Chance posted a photo dedicated to Corley on her birthday, May 31. Astrology nerds will notice that Corley’s sun sign is Gemini, or “the twins,” known for representing the two sides to a person. The sweet caption reads, “From the beginning beginning to the end end. You are my oldest and best friend. You are responsible for everyone of the most wonderful things in my life. I’m forever grateful that God made me find you, and even more grateful that you made me find God. Forever and ever babe. Happy Birthday.”
3. She got a shout-out at the Grammys.
Chance the Rapper won best new artist and best rap album at the 2017 Grammy Awards and expressed thanks to Kirsten and daughter Kensli. Kirsten gave birth to Kensli in 2015 after the couple had been off and on for about two years. On “All We Got,” from his acclaimed album Coloring Book, Chance raps, “Tryna turn my baby mama to my fiancée.” Looks like he followed through with those lyrics.
4. She Played Basketball
In a precious ode to his girl, Chance shared a verse about Corley’s nearly 6-foot frame and how she used to play basketball. He also drops some hints about their taste in reality TV shows and their off-and-on relationship phase.

5. She Knows How to Work a Couple’s Costume
Chance and Corley recreated an iconic photo of Tupac and Jada Pinkett for Halloween ’17. Corley looks gorgeous and definitely slayed this look. Elsewhere, she and Chance rock courtside couples style in matching hoodies and again in matching denim.
