Kim Kardashian West and hubby, Kanye are certainly one of the most famous celeb couples in our world today. The dynamic duo has been making headlines for ages and both have an array of accolades to be proud of. Not only is Kanye a mega musical star but his wife is reality TV royalty!

2003/2004: THEIR FIRST HELLOS
The power couple's journey stars all the way back in the early 00s! As Kim shared, "I met him I think in 2002 or 2003. He was recording a song with Brandy, and I was her friend. I vividly remember hanging out with him, and then they did a video together, so I’d see him a few times" she said.
She continued the hilarious first hello story as follows, "He was asking his friends: 'Who is this Kim Kardajan?' He didn’t know what my name was."

In fact, Kim has added West to her own name, finishing off her title with a fabulous double barrel.
FAST FORWARD TO 2010: GETTING FRIENDLY
The brief hello in 2003 was not when the sparks would fly for them.

Kim and Kanye seemed friendly and at ease with each other but there was nothing romantic happening, yet!

2013: THERE'S A BABY ON THE WAY
April 2013 the world was in for a lovely surprise for sure! With Kim's separation from Kris Humphries over, she was spotted with her new beau Kanye at the event of the year. That's right, Kimye turned heads at the Met Gala. One thing was clear, Kim was in floral and she was expecting!
The couple was beaming on the red carpet and a few months later, in June they said hello to a new addition. Little North West was the spitting image of her parents and fans were loving all of the new baby pictures. This would be the start of their big and happy family.
2013: THE BIG QUESTION
Kanye West popped the big question back in October 2013. They were down in San Francisco and to make it even more special, their family and friends were all there to witness the massive moment! Kanye could not stop smiling as he showed off his wife-to-be.
Kim has often shared about her relationship with Kanye saying, "I think being with a man like Kanye, you have to learn how to be a little bit not-so-independent. I’ve always been so independent and working. That all changed when she met the man of her dreams. "I had to learn that being with a man like Kanye," Kim said.
2014: THEY HAVE THAT FRONT COVER LOVE

May 24, 2014, marked the big day when Kimye said "I Do" during their very lavish wedding at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. North West was also a show stealer, rocking her very own white stress for the intimate ceremony. It surely was a one of kind wedding. What we would've given to be a fly on the wall in Italy back then!
2015: A YEAR TO BE REMEMBERED - BABIES AND THE RED CARPET
If toy thought 2014 was a big calendar year for the West's then you forget about what 2015 ushered in. The married duo was the talk of the town at Super Bowl XLIX followed by some divine PDA at the 57th Annual Grammys. To tie up a good public appearance, they decided on a trip to Armenia.
In April 2015 the pair set off to this lovely land and little did we know, Kim was pregnant again. The duo made yet another red carpet appearance at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Here Kanye accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, what an amazing achievement! In December 2015, they said hello to their second bundle of joy, a little boy named Saint.

2017: MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE WESTS
2017 was a relatively quiet year for this media limelight family. One of the few big moments came thanks to social media. The West family's 21 of the Kardashian Christmas card was a favorite moment for sure. With the entire clan kitted for the holiday, they shinned brightly as ever.
2018: MEETING CHICAGO
The Kardashian-West family welcomed another baby in January 2018. This time via a surrogate mother. The year was also a busy social time for the couple. They attended 2 Chainz and Kesha Ward's wedding in Miami in August 2018, obviously dressed to the nines.
2019: ANOTHER ADDITION TO THE FAMILY
It is no secret that Kim adores her big famous family, that's why she also wanted the same for herself. In 2019 she had another little one via surrogacy again. This fourth child, an adorable baby boy named Psalm rounded off their crew perfectly. We would not be surprised if this is not their last baby!
2019: A REDEDICATION OF THEIR LOVE
For their five year wedding anniversary, Kim and Kanye had an amazing intimate vow renewal. Their kids were also part of the special moment. She said, "I think it's so special that all four of our kids are here, I tried to get all of our wedding party out. It'll just be really sweet and I'm excited everyone is coming over."
2019 was also the year that we all gained a glimpse of the family's amazing Wyoming ranch. Here, their aesthetic and earthy vibes were clear. We also got a snapshot of them dressed up creatively for Halloween 2019. They took two pictures, one inspired by the Flintstones for Halloween and another dressed as bugs!
2020: A HAPPY FAMILY
The year began with a lot of happiness in the West household. An Instagram post said, "To lots of love in 2020," while another one said, "Morning madness." Both images featured the family getting up to their usual routine. We did get to see them dressed up for the Oscars Vanity Fair party before coronavirus quarantine kicked in.
Sadly, their joy and bliss would not last. Kim recently spoke up about her hubby's Twitter rants and unexplainable comments. She said, "I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it."
2020 TAKES A TURN FOR THE WORSE
"Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try," she expressed.
Kim then defended her husband and gave fans hope by stating, "He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his [illness]."
PRESENT DAY: WHAT DOES THE FUTURE LOOK LIKE FOR KIMYE?
The mother of four made this statement after rumors about divorce were circling. The duo shares a deep bond and a family so we don't think this is the end of the road for them. We hope that they manage to keep through this rough patch because they are one of the world's favorite couples!
