The rapper got down on one knee for his longtime girlfriend, Nakesha Ward, half way up the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s stairs as they walked the white carpet this evening. Appropriately, Ward was wearing white.
Ward could not contain her emotions, understandably, and teared up as soon as 2 Chainz got down on one knee. While the night is typically about the fashion, the hosts, the exhibition and fundraising for the museum, we understand the sentiment behind proposing on the Met Gala carpet.
The couple have been together since 2013 and they have three kids together: Heaven, Harmony and. It’s slightly confusing because the two have been calling each other “husband” and “wife” for a while now, but the pair are officially engaged to tie the knot now. Cheers!
A representative for 2 Chainz told ABC News that contrary to reports, the rapper and Ward are not married and were not engaged prior to Monday evening. However, because he shares three children with her, 2 Chainz often refers to Ward as his “wife.” Similarly, Ward’s Instagram bio reads, in part, “Wife of a Genius.”

2 Chainz’s net worth is believed to be around £4.4 million ($6 million).
The rapper started making money off the back of his debut album, United We Stand, United We Fall, which led to him being signed by Ludacris.
