Chicago MC Chance the Rapper is ready to seal the deal with longtime girlfriend, Kirsten Corley, as the “No Problems” spitter asked for her hand in marriage at a casual July 4th barbecue, surrounded by family and friends.
In video footage of the proposal, Chance, real name is Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, dropped to one knee and asked the mother of his only child, “Will you make me a man and be my wife?”
After saying yes, Bennett called over their daughter, 2-year-old Kensli, while Corley flaunted her new engagement ring.

The couple have been dating since 2013. Six months after their daughter was born, Corley filed legal documents to be Kensli’s “sole caretaker, demanding Bennett pay child support. She withdrew the filing in 2017 after reconciling with the Grammy-winner, according to Fader.
Congrats to the happy couple!
