Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are role models for many people – they are famous, wealthy, they are raising three beautiful kids, and they are madly in love! They look like a match made in heaven, but has it always been so? Read on to gain an insight into the couple’s standout moments.
How Did Kim and Kanye Meet?
The backstory of how they met doesn’t feature any dramatic details. Kim said that they met in 2002 or 2003 for the first time. West was interested in her when she was friends with Paris Hilton, and he wanted to take her out, but it didn’t happen.
Then, Kanye West was featured on a spin-off of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” in 2010. After that, Kim went a different direction. However, during this time, they were good friends.
So, there was no spark between them, and their first acquaintance did not lead to anything. So, Kim Kardashian married Kris Humphries (their marriage lasted only 72 days), and Kanye worked on his career. However, in 2012, a long silence had been broken. Kanye released a new song “Theraflu,” where he made a love confession to Kim Kardashian.
Kim’s reaction was encouraging, she responded saying, “Kanye and I have been friends for years. You know, you never know what the future holds or where my life will take me. So… I like the song.”
Later that year they got together. Undoubtedly, 2012 was a prosperous year for the couple because, at the end of the year, they announced they were expecting a baby!
2013 was full of ups and downs for them. Thus, Kim has finally got divorced (yes, she’s been fighting to put an end to her prior marriage), they have got through all the rumors about Kanye’s adultery, Kim had some fertility struggles, but all these problems faded away compared to the main event in their life – the birth of their first child, North West. Their first daughter was born on June 15, 2013.
The next stage of their relationship was a thrilling proposal at San Francisco’s AT&T Park. Kanye West has planned this big moment carefully – he invited Kim’s family, hired an orchestra that played one of Kim’s favorite songs “Young and Beautiful.”

Everything from the flowers to the cake looked like something out of a fairy tale. It was magnificent.
This year was replaced by another year, full of joy. In the spring of 2015, Kim announced her pregnancy, and on December 5, 2015, the couple welcomed their second child. The couple has named their son Saint West.
The next year was filled with different events. Thus, the couple has been involved in a conflict with a singer Taylor Swift. Kanye West used lines about her in his song “Famous.” Of course, Kim stood up for her husband.
In October 2016, the family and the public were shocked by a terrible event – Kim was robbed in Paris. After that, Kim stopped doing public appearances. In fact, it was tough for her to recover from this accident. In November, Kanye West canceled his tour and he was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation. It was a difficult period for the family.
Having spent some time in the hospital, Kanye returned to his wife and kids in December 2016. There was much speculation about their divorce, but they were still together and strong as never.
The couple shared their plans for family extension in April 2017. Kim Kardashian had some medical issues during previous pregnancies, that is why they made a decision to consider surrogacy. This decision brought them even closer and both of them were involved in the process of selecting a surrogate mother.
In September, it was reported that the couple would welcome their baby number three in January.
On January 15, 2018, they have welcomed their baby number three, a beautiful and healthy baby girl – Chicago West.
On May 24, 2018, they celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary. Kim posted a touching message on Twitter: “4 years down and forever to go… Thank you, babe, for giving me our family and caring so much about us. Thank you for inspiring me on a daily, I’m so lucky. I can’t wait for forever… Happy Anniversary.”
How long have Kim and Kanye been together? They have dated for more than two years, they have been married for four years, and they have been friends for what seems like forever!
These four years have been filled with good times and hard times, but Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West stood strong, and now they are a wonderful married couple, great parents, and best friends.
