Being on the spotlight almost 24/7 is definitely not for everyone, but the Kardashians have definitely been living with it for more than a decade. One of the most memorable moments on the show was when Kim Kardashian, who is said to have started everything, tied the knot and started a family with rapper Kanye West. The two has been on of the most famous power couple in Hollywood. They are even dominating the social media scene most of the time. They are currently celebrating their fourth anniversary, so continue reading to find out how they celebrated it with a little sprinkle of drama.
Kim & Kanye
Before the world knew “KimYe” they were of course first involved with some other people. Kim actually dated a few guys such as Nick Lachey, who at that time just got divorced with singer Jessica Simpson. She has also been involved with Mariah Carey’s ex-husband Nick Cannon, NFL star Reggie Bush, and of course to NBA player Kris Humphries. Kim and Kris actually dated for a few months before getting engaged, got married the same year they got engaged and just after 72 days of marriage, they decided to get a divorce. Humphries even made a couple of appearances on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
What most people don’t know is that Kim and Kanye actually met around 2003 and have known each other for quite awhile. Although in an interview with Ryan Seacrest, the rapper admitted that he had been quite smitten with Kim for years. It was in 2012 that they were seen together and have confirmed they were actually dating. Since then he had been making a couple of appearances on the family’s reality show more and more.
Before that year ended, the couple confirmed that they are actually expecting. In 2013, their eldest daughter North West was born and just a few months after that, Kanye rented out the entire San Francisco AT&T baseball stadium to surprise Kim and proposed, they got married a year later, which was actually featured in a special episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The two got married in Florence, Italy and their wedding photo actually became the most liked photo on Instagram of that year. After a few years, they started having more kids such as Saint, who was born in 2015 and Chicago, who was actually born via surrogate just this year.

Three Children, Four Years and Counting
After four years, this power couple is still as strong as ever which actually surprised everyone. The Kardashians including Kim, are known to have had their fair share of failed relationships. Kourtney had three kids with Scott Disick but are not together anymore and they seem to be happy with other people. Khloe, who just gave birth to her baby girl True, is still dealing with the cheating controversy of her baby daddy NBA player Tristan Thompson. Kylie, on the other hand, managed to keep her pregnancy a secret last year with boyfriend Travis Scott but is currently dealing with allegations about the true identity of the father of her child.
Which is why people are a bit surprised that Kim and Kanye are actually doing well. In an Instagram post, the reality star said that she simply couldn’t wait to spend forever with Kanye and that she feels lucky to have him. In return, Kanye posted a tweet on his official Twitter account that says he is deeply grateful for this wife with all the happiness they have had for the past years, he even shared a video of Kim dressed as Selena for Halloween last year.
Kanye actually just came back to Twitter last year and has been very controversial since he’s shown how much he is supportive of Trump, which definitely bothered a lot of people and even celebrities. When Kim was asked about it, she simply said that she believes that it is definitely not the best idea to put his political views on social media because he has an image to protect.
