1. They've been together since 2013.

Chance and Kristen have never had a very public relationship, but the Chicagoans have been dating since 2013. He has referred to her in his lyrics and he posts about her on social media, such as when he wished her a happy birthday in May: "You are my oldest and best friend. 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 babe. Happy Birthday."

2. She is his baby mama.

Kristen and Chance welcomed their first child, a daughter named Kensli Bennett in September 2015. Chance announced the birth on Insta, captioning the photo below: "I got to take my child home. Thank God, her mother, our families, the medical staff at Women's Prentice and an amazing organization called The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicago. I love this time in my life, and I've learned to love better because of it. I wanted make a grandiose and poetic statement with her weight and size and DOB to show how much this means to me, but I think it'd be more appropriate and fatherly of me to just say thanks to those who helped us during this pregnancy, and ask for a little privacy in this time for me and my new family to get settled."

3. They've had their ups and downs.

Chance and Kristen broke up in 2016 after she filed a legal petition asking the court to declare Chance as their daughter's father. Kristen also asked the courts to make child support payments retroactive to her daughter's birth and sought to have her pregnancy expenses reimbursed. She also wanted to be named the "sole caretaker" of Kensli. That motion was withdrawn in January 2017 after Kristen and Chance reconciled and were living together again. Shortly after, he shared the first image of his daughter on Instagram.

4. Their daughter got excited.

A video is making the rounds of Chance, born Chancellor Jonathan Bennett, getting down on one knee and proposing. In it, he says: “Kirsten Katrina Corley, will you make me a man and be my wife?” Their daughter ran up to her parents as Kristen said yes.
