American model, Kirsten Corley, is better known as the wife of the three times Grammy Award-winning artist, Chance the Rapper.
The mother of two has been keeping her personal life away from the limelight. So, we have gathered up a pretty decent dose of information regarding the 26-year-old.
Kirsten Corley Bio: Family and Education
Kirsten Corley was born on May 31, 1993, in Chicago, Illinois holding an African American ethnicity. The information regarding her parents are not yet known to the public, but she did grow up with her now-husband, Chancelor Jonathan Bennett.
Very little is known about her early education, but we do know that she graduated from DePaul University- Loop Campus.
According to some online sources, Kirsten used to work as a model and has done some work in the field. In 2014, she was a part of an editorial shoot for Alexander Wang’s Autumn/Winter Collection, where she wore an over-sized white t-shirt and a boxy maroon bomber jacket.
She was a former employee at the Advertising/Marketing Company, Worn Creative in New York. She has also written a book, But Before You Leave, which has gained a lot of positive responses.
Relationship with Chance the Rapper
Having known each other since kids, Kirsten and Chance first started going out in 2013. They met each other at a party in Chicago and soon began dating.
After being together for two years, Kirsten got pregnant with their first child and later in September welcomed their baby daughter, Kensli Bennett. Soon, the couple found out that Kensli had an atrial flutter, which caused Chance to question his faith towards god.
During that period, the two started facing relationship problems and thus lived separately. While their daughter’s health condition prompted, Kirsten filed legal papers to become the sole caretaker of Kensli and demanding financial support from Chance.
The case was revisited in 2017 in order to find common ground regarding child support and parenting schedules. After a few months, they patched things up, and Kirsten withdrew her filing in January 2017.
In an interview with Oyster Magazine, Chance joked about how long they’d been dating as well as admitted his song, Interlude (That’s Love), is about his wife.
If you have a list of perfect proposals, then you better add this one to it. In 2018 during Independence Day, Chance got down to one knee and proposed to the mother of his child. Without a doubt, it was a yes from Kirsten.
Following the wedding proposal last year, the couple got married on March 9, 2019, but had already legally united on December 27, 2018, in a civil ceremony at Cook County Clerk’s office in Chicago.
The public wedding ceremony took place at the Luxurious Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California. The event was attended by 50 guests, including Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
The groom wore a dashing white tuxedo with a black bow, whereas the bride had an astonishing white Galia Lahav strapless gown.
Living with Husband, Chance, and two daughters
Chance the Rapper and his wife, Kirsten Corley, has recently welcomed their second baby girl, Marli Bennett in September 2019. The couple had decided not to share pictures of their baby girl right away but later took the news to Instagram.
After the couple welcomed their second baby to the world, Chance postponed his upcoming tour for next year to stay with his family.
While we don’t have information regarding the net worth of Kirsten, we do know that the net worth of Chance is $25 million as of 2019.
The couple is currently busy looking after their two daughters in Chicago.
