Chance the Rapper’s wife expecting their second baby

Gilbert Carrasquillo/GC ImagesFollowing the news of their wedding this past Saturday, Chance the Rapper and his wife Kirsten Corley have now announced that they're expecting their second baby.

“We pregnant again. It’s a girl. Jesus Christ, We love God,” Chance commented on Instagram.

Chance and Corley have a daughter, three-year-old Kensli.

As previously reported, Chance and Kirsten tied the knot publicly March 9 at Newport Beach, California.  Actually, the pair have been legally wed since December 27, according to the marriage certificate the Chicago Tribune obtained and reported on Thursday.  That was a civil ceremony, while Saturday's affair was before family and friends.

Chance, born Chancellor Bennett, and Corley, both 25, have known one another for 16 years.  Chance described their first meeting in a series of tweets last Wednesday, referring to Corley as "my wife" as he told the story of their initial encounter as nine-year-old children, when Corley and two other girls performed a Destiny's Child routine, and invited him to join them and dance.

"I'm locking eyes with the prettiest girl I ever seen in my almost-a-decade of life on earth," Chance wrote.  "I knew I was going to marry that girl. And I ain't wanna jump the gun. So I shook my head with anxiety, moved to the back of the crowd and never introduced myself."

The two finally met again, in Austin, Texas in 2012, realized their shared past, and the rest is history.

As Chance explained: "16 years later, it’s happening. This [weekend] is the time, and the place is my wedding. I’m gonna dance with my wife because this is my destiny."

Chance and Corley got engaged this past July.
