Wise men say only fools rush in, but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West couldn’t help falling in love — and now Kim is having their baby! Kanye announced Kim’s pregnancy, which is now four months along, at a concert in early January. But how long has this couple been together?
It’s hard to say exactly when things started for Kimye, in large part because they’ve known each other for so long. Kim and her sisters have been friends with Kanye for years. We’ve always heard the longest lasting relationships start out from friendship, so that bodes well for these two expectant parents!
Though we can’t say when things officially moved from platonic to romantic, the couple went public with their love in April 2012. Before they appeared together in public, however, Kanye released a song called “Way Too Cold” (formerly titled “Theraflu”) with this confessional lyric snippet:
"And I admit I fell in love with Kim
'Round the same time she fell in love with him
Well that's cool, babygirl do your thing
Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team"
The “him” ‘Ye refers to here is obviously Kris Humphries, who plays for the Brooklyn Nets. Kanye West’s BFF Jay-Z is a part owner of the team, and Kanye seems to think he could have had Kris pulled from the roster if he’d wanted to. How big of him to restrain himself!
While these two insist their romance is new, there have been stories for years that these two were romantically involved for much longer than they let on. Kanye’s ex, Amber Rose, has alleged that the two were involved while Kim was dating NFLer Reggie Bush.
We may never know how long Kanye waited before professing his love to Kim. What we do know for sure is that the couple attended the opening of Scott Disick’s now defunct restaurant, Ryu, on April 24, 2012... hand in hand.
Since then, they’ve been spotted together in L.A., Paris, and just about everywhere in between. Their love has now outlasted Kim’s marriage before separation AND Scott’s failed restaurant. Isn’t love crazy?
