Chance The Rapper is engaged

ATLANTA • American musician Chance The Rapper has no excuse if he is to ever forget this momentous event in his life, for he chose July 4 - Independence Day in the United States - to propose to his girlfriend.

The occasion was a backyard barbecue to celebrate the holiday with family and friends.

Video footage showed a shirtless Chance going down on one knee to pop the question to Ms Kirsten Corley, who was barefoot.

The couple have a two-year-old daughter, Kensli, who witnessed the sweet proposal.

But, according to the Hollywood Life portal, their romance has not always been smooth.

In 2016, Ms Corley had to seek the court's help to include the rapper's name in Kensli's birth certificate.

She also asked for child support.

With family harmony intact, Chance can now finetune his upcoming seven-track project, with Kanye West on board as producer.
