Looks like the Coloring Book of Chance the Rapper’s life just got brighter.

Chance, born Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, married Kirsten Corley on Saturday in what looked like a stunning ceremony at the Pelican Hill resort in Newport Beach, Calif.


Following a longtime relationship (they officially boo’d up in 2013), the two lovebirds got engaged in July 2018. The pair have an adorable daughter together named Kensli.

“After the ceremony, Kim [Kardashian West] and Kanye [West] hung out with Dave Chappelle on the lawn,” an eyewitness told E! News. “They were all laughing together and having a great time. They posed for photos and Chance came over to chat. They congratulated him and gave him hugs. Kim and Kanye were offered some champagne. Kim passed but Kanye took a glass. Then they walked inside together for the reception. It looked like they were very happy to be there and to see their friend get married. They both never stopped smiling.”

Days leading up to the wedding, Chance shared a very heartwarming story on Twitter, recalling the time he first “locked eyes” on his now wife. He first saw Kirsten when he was just 9 years old while she and a group of girls were performing a Destiny’s Child routine.


“I knew I was gonna marry that girl,” he wrote. Cut to 16 years later and Chance knew his life had come full circle. In fact, he referred to his wedding day as his “destiny.”



The 25-year-old rapper also posted a series of gorgeous photos from the big day on Instagram, simply captioning it, “The Bennetts.”


Congrats to the Bennetts!
