Chance the Rapper: ENGAGED to Kirsten Corley!

by at .

Looks like the number three on Chance the Rapper's signature baseball cap has officially taken on a new meaning!

Chance got engaged to longtime girlfriend Kirsten Corley on Wednesday, and you can bet the couple's daughter, 2-year-old Kensli, will be involved in every step of the planning process as the tight-knit family unit takes their next major step forward together.

Chance got down on one knee during a backyard Fourth of July celebration in his native Chicago yesterday.

His younger brother, rapper Taylor Bennett, captured the moment on video.

“Kirsten Katrina Corley, will you make me a man and be my wife?”

Little Kensli reportedly ran up to the happy couple the moment she heard her mother say yes.

“Proposed In The Hunninds! @chancetherapper You A Real One! 7-4-18 #BlockBoys," Bennett captioned the clip.

Chance confirmed the engagement with a simple, heartfelt (and very well-received) tweet:

Chance and Kirsten began dating in 2013.

They separated in May of 2016, and the situation briefly got ugly, with a custody dispute landing the exes in court.

Corley filed a petition for child support, but asked the court to declare her Kensli's "sole caretaker."

Kirsten withdrew her petition in 2017 after she and Chance reconciled.

Chance is the first to admit that his relationship hasn't always been perfect, and he's addressed the difficulties he and Kirsten have endured both in his music and on Twitter.

When Chance accepted the Grammy for Best New Artist in 2017, the rapper offered a message of heartfelt gratitude to Kirsten and Kensli:

Chance the Rapper, Kirsten Corley

“I wanna thank God for my mother and my father who’ve supported me since I was young. For Kirsten and Kensli, for all of Chicago,” Chance said.

Shortly thereafter, he celebrated Corley's birthday by paying tribute on social media:

“From the beginning beginning to the end end. You are my oldest and best friend,” he wrote on Instagram.

“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."

Our sincere congratulations go out to Chance, Kirsten, and of course, little Kensli.

We'll be on the lookout for Chance rocking a hat with the number four on it!
