As a shameless fan of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I am very happy to see Rob Kardashian back in the news. Not only that, but the sole male in the famous family also seems super happy for the first time in a long time. And he is attributing a lot of that to his recent romance with Blac Chyna. Yes, as in his sister Kylie Jenner's boyfriend Tyga's ex girlfriend and mother of his child. So this is an unconventional love square to say the least. And unless you've been living under a rock, you probably know that Rob Kardashian popped the question to Blac Chyna and the two of them are engaged.
This really seems like it came out of nowhere, but both of them seem ecstatic about the relationship according to their social media posts. They've only been dating for a few months, but they are definitely one of the most fascinating celebrity couples out there right now. I think this is because they strike this weird balance of both being open books, while still being mysterious. What I mean by this is that neither of these two have had this much media attention in a long time. They have both been relatively low profile and now they are just putting a lot out there, but the public still doesn't know a ton of information about you. They are people of interest, but there is still some mystique.
There are a bunch of things that you might not have realized about Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna's relationship. Like...
10 Blac Chyna Used To Be Close Friends With Kim
Long before the Tyga-induced drama between Blac Chyna, Amber Rose, and various members of the Kardashian and Jenner family, Kim Kardashian and Blac Chyna were actually really good friends. If you go back and watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you can notice that Blac Chyna made some low key appearances as a pal of Kim's. She even took a pole dancing class with Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner in one episode. Blac Chyna and Tyga even attended the Kimye wedding as a couple which I find extremely interesting. But it does make sense that you didn't notice this friendship because in all of the photos that Kim Kardashian posted of the two of them, I bet that everyone's eyes went to their booties instead of their faces.
9 They Went To A Strip Club With Her Mom On Proposal Night
Even though Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have only been together for a short time, it is clear that they are living out their relationship on their own terms. These two are far from a conventional couple by any means. They celebrated the engagement by going out on the town with Blac Chyna's mother Tokyo Toni, which is not too crazy, but it did get a little weird by most people's standards. The trio went out that night to a strip club to celebrate the impending nuptials. I don't know about you, but I've never had a family gathering at a strip club before.
8 Rob Could Be The Step Dad & Uncle To Blac Chyna's Son
This part is kind of a confusing to comprehend. The love square with Rob Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Tyga, And Blac Chyna is complicated to say the least. In a situation that is already a little bit tough to follow, matters get a little bit blurred when it comes to Tyga and Blac Chyna's son King Cairo. If Rob Kardashian ends up marrying Blac Chyna and his sister Kylie Jenner gets married to Tyga at some point, this would make Rob both the stepdad and the uncle to King Cairo. That is both oddly fascinating and a little bit tough to grasp. I would love to see an updated version of the family tree.
7 Rob Moved Out Of Khloe's To Live With Blac Chyna
Rob Kardashian was living with his sister Khloe Kardashian for a long time, so it was pretty shocking when he moved out of the house at the beginning of his romantic relationship with Blac Chyna. They really did get super serious from the get-go. There are couples who have been together for years that do not live together and these two essentially started out as roomies. I have no idea if Rob is paying rent or if he is just a guest in her room, but these two are super domestic already and are really moving fast in their relationship.
6 The Engagement Has Tyga's Blessing
In a very uncharacteristic move, the Kardashians and Jenners have been silent on social media when it comes to the engagement announcement. There has not been one message to congratulate the couple and no one has thrown any shade in their direction. The subject has not been addressed at all. The only person who spoke out about the engagement is Blac Chyna's ex and Kylie Jenner's current boyfriend Tyga, who sounded off in a series of tweets. The rapper said, "It makes me happy to see the mother of my son happy. My only concern in this situation is my son. I want him in happy environments."
Tyga also said, "He's innocent in this. & I want him to feel as much love as possible. Only an evil heart would direct negativity at a child & make fun of him for being in a situation that is out of his control." The man has a point and he clearly just wants the best for his son who is innocently caught up in this media circus.
5 She Wants To Have His Baby
To say that this relationship is moving at a fast pace, would be a vast understatement. The two have only been together for a few months, but they have already been subjected to pregnancy rumors. On top of that, Blac Chyna has admitted that she wants to have Rob Kardashian's children as soon as possible in some Snap Chat posts. In the Snaps, Black Chyna said, "Rob, I am not playing with you, I want my eggs cracked! That means I want to have a baby!" Wow, she really gets right to the point. Will Blac Chyna be the one to give birth to the next generation of Kardashians? Only time will tell.
4 They Celebrated The Engagement By Rapping To Kanye's Song That Mentions Them Having Sex
Personally, I feel like it would be pretty dope to have Kanye West as a brother-in-law, but I sometimes wonder what the family is thinking when he references and gives them shout outs in his song lyrics. I also think it is especially weird that Kanye would rap the words "Blac Chyna fuckin' Rob, help him with the weight" on the new song "Highlights." It's just really awkward for family members to talk about each other having sex, but then again these are the Kardashians. Plus, Blac Chyna and Rob are clearly feeling the shout out since they sang along to that part of the song on Snap Chat on the night of their engagement.
3 Amber Rose Wants To Be The Maid Of Honor
On one hand, this news should not be much of a surprise given that Blac Chyna and Amber Rose are super vocal about being best friends. On the other hand, Amber Rose previously involved herself in her BFF's Kardashian/Jenner feud on top of her own drama with her ex boyfriend & Kim Kardashian's husband Kanye West. But then again, it seems like Kim and Amber are pretty cool with each other these days so anything is possible. I would just love it to see Amber, the Kardashians, Jenners, Tyga, and Blac Chyna in wedding photos together. It would be everything.
2 There Are Emojis Inspired By Their Engagement
I feel like Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna really became an It couple overnight. No one really knows much about them as a unit or as individuals, but the public is beyond curious. As a result, social media accounts and group chats everywhere have been blowing with memes, commentary, and questions about the relationship. So it makes perfect sense for Blac Chyna BFF Amber Rose to capitalize on this buzz and instantly create Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian engagement Muvojis, which is her own brand of emojis. I'm sure the couple uses them all the time and I'm just wondering how Rob's sister / Kimoji creator Kim Kardashian feels about another celebrity emoji app featuring her brother.
1 Blac Chyna Plans To Go By "Angela Kardashian"
After the past couple years of Kardashian hating and shade on social media, it is just so weird that Blac Chyna of all people would be the only one (at this point) who can give birth to new Kardashians. It is just so crazy that someone who was so anti-Kardashian wants to take that last name. On top of that, this will also be the first time that Blac Chyna will have an actual first name. Who even knew that her given name is Angela- well, hopefully Rob knew that one. I'm just surprised that she doesn't intend to change Angela to a "K" name to really stick it to Rob's sisters.
