Kanye West has bragged about how he’s been in love with Kim Kardashian since he first saw her with then-pal Paris Hilton back in 2006.
Now we’re getting some photographic proof he might not have been exaggerating.
Kourtney Kardashian posted a #throwbacktuesday photo to her Instagram of herself posed in between Kanye and Kim from a magazine party back in 2008. The rapper is grinning from ear to ear as he gazes squarely toward Kim. Kourtney captioned it “love this. Major throwback”
But Kim wasn’t available to him back then as she was still dating football player Reggie Bush. West even told Kris Jenner on her short lived summer talk show “I just dreamed about being next to her.”
Kanye had to be patient though. Kim and Reggie broke up in 2010 but she went on to marry NBA player Kris Humphries in 2011. Kanye finally got his chance when Kim and Kris split later that year.
Fast forward to 2014, not only is he engaged to his dream woman, they have a beautiful daughter together!
Patience pays off Kanye.
