Kanye West Engaged, New Fiancee Walks with Him

by at . Comments

We already know that Kanye West thinks Jesus walks with him .. but now his girlfriend Alexis will be sauntering down the aisle to meet the rapper in a few months.

Yes, that stretch of a metaphor is meant to relay the fact that West proposed to Alexis while overseas. Her name and occupation are being kept on the DL, but the pair has been together since West's October 2002 car accident.

That's almost as long as Diana Bianchi has been alive!

This will be the first marriage for the Grammy winner, who rose to fame as a producer for Roc-a-Fella Records, where he gained notice for his work on Jay-Z's 2001 album, The Blueprint. He's also produced hits for artists including Ludacris and Alicia Keys.

But West's career was almost derailed by a near-fatal car accident in 2002, which inspired the single "Through the Wire" from his 2004 debut album, The College Dropout. It also led to his meeting Alexis.

When Kanye accepted the Grammy for best rap album and best rap song, he said:

"If you have the opportunity to play this game called life, you have to appreciate every moment."

Amen. And congratulations.
