Chance The Rapper, wife Kirsten Corley, and their kids Kensli,5, Marli Bennett,1, are picture-perfect in new photos shot by celebrity photographer Naja Lerus. In one picture, Chance can be seen holding both of his daughters as Kensli gives him a kiss on the cheek. In another photo, the whole family poses for the camera.
“I hope when you look at us, you don’t see “the perfect family,” Kirsten captioned of the family photo.
She continued, “I hope you see two imperfect human beings who are doing their best to cultivate a home rooted in Love & Grace. Marriage is difficult. It would be irresponsible to say otherwise, or give ya’ll the impression that it’s a walk in the park. It forces you to confront A LOT of parts of yourself you didn’t know were there.. especially in this season of being home way more than we’re used to lol but I believe it is worth it, when you both commit to doing the inner work . A reminder to stand in gratitude, for the family we have created. flaws & all.”
Chance The Rapper, who married Kirsten last year after years of courting, recently shared how grateful he is to be with his wife and children during the pandemic. “I’ve been waking up daily with a newfound gratitude and being very grateful that I’m married right now,” says Chance. “The fact that me, my daughters and my wife all live in one house together is a huge, huge blessing, so I’ve just been taking that in.”
He added of his daughters, “They make me laugh so often. Kensli says really funny stuff and she’s very, very advanced for her age,” said Chance. “I know all parents say that about their kids, but it’s ridiculous. She’s so intelligent and she just speaks. She’s very opinionated too. She says exactly how she feels about stuff. She’s 4, but she acts like a 7 year old that’s acting like she’s 13.”
