Chance the Rapper on His Longtime Love Story with His Wife


Hello there, Chance. Hey, Ellen. You look good. Thank you. You look really good. Yeah. And congratulations. You had a little tiny baby. I did. I have a fresh baby. A fresh baby. Fresh, fresh baby. Well, your wife had the baby. But– OK, yes. I can’t take all the credit. No. But I was there. So. And how old is this tiny baby? She just made a week
I think yesterday. Yeah her name’s– thank you– her name’s Marli Grace
Bennett, and yeah, I love her. So that’s dope. [APPLAUSE] You posted a picture. Now look at that. That is so sweet. So now she’s– you posted
a picture of just the body without the face. Yes. So who does she look like? Describe her face. OK. There’s two eyes,
there’s a nose, a mouth. She looks a lot like– you have a sketch pad. No, I’m– while
you’re describing it. OK. Well, there’s two eyes. Are they round,
or more kind of– More kind of. Like kind of– How you just said. All right. Hair? Yes, she does have hair. A lot? She has a lot of hair. That’s hair? Long hair? And then a little tiny nose. She has a nose, a round nose. Somewhere between
me and Kensli’s. All right. Does she smile? She does. Yeah. When she’s sleeping. Yes. I guess she looks a
little like that, then? That is incredible. Really? It’s like she’s here. Crazy. That’s Marli. Like if I’m holding
her like that. That’s how she looks. Yeah. So and then you married– how
long have you been with– what, I’m sorry. What is your wife’s name? Kirsten Bennett now. Kirsten Bennett. Yeah. She’s got my last name. And yeah, we’ve been
married since March 9th. Sorry, we got married
last year in December. We had our wedding March 9. So Yeah coming up
on a year, actually. But you’ve known each other
since you were nine years old. Since we were nine years old. Yeah. So that’s the sweetest story. Yeah. So my mom worked
at a real estate agency with her mom and
her mom through like a– don’t know, a Christmas party. And her daughters
loved to dance, and so they did like
a choreographed dance at this real estate party that
I was at, when I was nine. And I saw her dancing, and I
was like, let’s get married. So sweet. So she’s been with you from– through everything. Oh, yeah, definitely
before I was successful, she was my girlfriend. For sure. Yes. That’s important. If I’m successful now. Yes, pre-success. You’re very successful. Thank you. And what’s great about
your success is that– I mean I love you
for many reasons, because I love your talent. But I love your heart,
because you gave $1 million to education, you gave a $1
million to mental health. I mean, you buy
groceries for your fans. [CHEERING] You’re a good guy. Thank you. Why is it important
for you to give back? I think– all right,
so why is it important? So my understanding of a lot
of stuff is based on Jesus. So like Jesus teaches
to be like, you know, to care for your
neighbor and care for people that aren’t
necessarily your blood but still a part of your body,
because we’re all humans. And so like I think that’s an
impactful thing that I think I understood more as I got older. But my parents,
since I was young, definitely instilled
in me to like, when you see people that
are in need you don’t just want to pass them by. You want to try and do
something beneficial to them before you leave. Assess your imprint. So I guess that’s my–
mixture of my parents and Jesus would be my answer. Good inspiration. I don’t know. Good inspirations. All right, I have
something, first of all, for your whole family. We have overalls for everybody. Come on. All right. All right. And Kensli. So everybody’s got– and now
instead of three, you’ve got– And a fourth one? You got to be four. Right? This is actually so cute. And more important. So the first time
you were here you were here to promote
Coloring Book, right? And so on Spotify,
you have passed up– I think it’s a
1.5 billion views. All right. So we have something
to commemorate that. Oh. No! This is like a
real record plaque. Yeah. Well, thank you. You’re welcome. You just — We’ll be right back. Thank you.

  1. I wish every celebrity be like him and Ellen, giving back to those in need,if you have lots of money,help,that's a wonderful feeling!!

  2. Itโ€™s so crazii I donโ€™t see know black successful men with black women ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธkinda sucks but happy for him

  3. Because he mentioned Jesus heโ€™ll probably never be invited on the show again. But man so much respect for this dude!

  4. Love him. U could tell he didnt really want to talk about his donations. He doesnt do it to show people he donates he does it because thats the right thing and what God would want !

  5. Everyone knows Chance always has his "3" cap. That "4" cap was the sweetest thing ever. Definitely one of the the best gifts Ellen's ever given.

  6. The moment he said "Jesus.." I was like YESSS ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพSIR๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Šโœ๏ธ

  7. Man. People can say what they want, a man that gives Jesus Christ the glory is cool in my book. Hats off for not being shamed on he who WAS and IS TO COME BACK soon. Notice the crowd can clap for millions given but not the trillions of breaths given by the Lord. But soon enough The LORD will be calling every soul home. All shall stand before God. I think that is absolutely the most dopest thing ever. Nobody who has ever lived cannot at all avoid the upcoming meeting of being face to face with GOD. To give an account. Exciting!

  8. If you are not aware, Chance proclaims JESUS CHRIST, as his LORD and SAVIOR, and ELLEN whom is a HOMOSEXUAL, knows what JESUS teaches, Man being for woman, and not man man, woman woman. She may appear to be happy and joyous, for Chance in this video, but for those with eyes that can see, she obviously does not believe in Christ or, his teachings, and I guarantee she with all her contacts in HOLLYWOOD, will try and put chance in situations that OUT RIGHT go AGAINST the practices of CHRISTIANITY!?!? STAY TUNED…….

  9. Chance should definitely put a bar in one of is songs like โ€œI got a 4 hat for my family you canโ€™t spot my foreheadโ€ or some

  10. I think Chance thought the entire " I love my wife" message was going to be received a lot better. For the demographic who buys his music, we DO NOT CARE!

  11. Omg I didn't know a lot about him. But now I know he's so adorable&humble, I'm a new fanโค I love people that give&people with faith in religion. It's just wonderful

  12. Which chance is the real chance? The chance up on stage with Ellen or the chance in the crowd with his fam at 2:23 ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
