KIM & KANYE GET TOGETHER
Following her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian began dating Kanye West back in 2012 — while still fighting to legally end her prior union. "They have been close friends for years and decided to give it a try [with dating]," a source close to the couple revealed at the time. Unsurprisingly, the rapper made his feelings for Kardashian known. In his song "Theraflu," West sings, "I admit I fell in love with Kim … 'Round the same time she fell in love with him … That's cool, babygirl, do your thing … Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team." (West was referring to his pal Jay Z who then owned the New Jersey Nets, the team Humphries played for at the time.)

KIM UNDERGOES PREGNANCY COMPLICATIONS
The reality star doesn't keep anything from fans — and her fertility struggles were no exception, as she opened up to C Magazine about her first pregnancy. "I had so many complications. I had this condition called placenta accreta," she said. "There were a couple little operations to fix all that, so that created a little hole in my uterus."

THEY GET ENGAGED
Talk about a happy birthday! Four months after welcoming daughter North, Kardashian and West marked yet another relationship milestone: getting engaged! The rapper planned an elaborate proposal at San Francisco's AT&T Park (which he rented out for the occasion), where the pair were joined by close friends and family.

THEY GET MARRIED
Introducing Mr. and Mrs. West! After a weeklong Parisian celebration, the reality maven and rapper not-so-quietly tied the knot in 2014 at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. The couple chose the Italian city for a very personal reason: they conceived North there. "It was funny how nervous he was," an onlooker told PEOPLE of West. "He clearly knew the gravity of what he was about to do. This morning he was all smiles, but as it got closer, you could see that the nerves were kicking in. It's common for most grooms. I've seen it all before."

THEY WELCOME SON SAINT
After endless months of hoping for baby no. 2 and two years after welcoming daughter North, the couple was finally blessed with their second child, a son named Saint — but not before the reality star underwent a less-than-stellar pregnancy. "I just don't think pregnancy and me really agree with each other," she revealed to E! Online. "You know it was really hard for me to get pregnant so I do feel really blessed that I am pregnant and at the end of the day it is a million times worth it … I'm really not complaining, I'm just being honest and being honest about, I hate it you know pregnancy is not for me."

KANYE GOES ON A TWITTER RANT, ATTACKS WIZ KHALIFA & AMBER ROSE
In February 2016, West went on one of his infamous Twitter rants — this time getting into spats with Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose, mentioning the pair's child, Sebastian. (West eventually apologized for the back-and-forth.) Though Kim generally keeps a level head about most of her husband's eccentric behavior, a source told PEOPLE: "What causes friction in the marriage, however, is Kanye's compulsive tweeting. Kim can't stand it. She is all for self-promotion, but doesn't approve of Twitter drama."

KANYE'S 'FAMOUS' SONG SURFACES, PROMPTING A FEUD WITH TAYLOR SWIFT
In the summer of 2016, a song off West's album The Life of Pablo, entitled "Famous," leaked — to the dismay of Taylor Swift. Why? The tune featured controversial lyrics ("I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous") that took aim at the pop star. While Swift expressed outrage, West maintained that he had called her to ask for her blessing — a claim the "Bad Blood" crooner vehemently denied. "[She] cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message," a spokesperson for the star told PEOPLE. "Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.' "

KIM COMES TO KANYE'S DEFENSE ON SNAPCHAT
After an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (in which Swift's feud with West took center stage) aired, Kardashian shared a series of videos on her Snapchat account of a phone call between West and Swift discussing the rapper's lyrics about the singer. "It's like a compliment," Swift is heard saying in the video after West reads the lyrics, "For all my Southside n—– that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex," to her. "I never would've expected you to like tell me about a line in your song," Swift responded on the call. "I mean, I don't think anybody would listen to that and be like, 'Oh, that's a real diss.' You gotta tell the story that way that it happened to you and the way you experienced it." The now-infamous snaps sparked the trending hashtag #KimExposedTaylorParty — and many tweets backed Kardashian's move to release those "receipts."

KIM IS ROBBED AT GUNPOINT IN PARIS
In Oct. 2016, Kardashian was the victim of a terrifying armed robbery while in her hotel room in Paris, tied up and held at gunpoint while thieves took millions of dollars in jewels. The incident, which prompted her rapper-husband to abruptly end his New York City show, caused the public star to suddenly lead a much more private life. A source told PEOPLE that Kardashian was "hysterical" when she called West after the robbery, saying, "He said she was really upset and it took him a few seconds to understand what she was saying to him. He wanted to get to her as soon as he could. He told her that he couldn't care less about the jewelry; he's just thankful that she's okay."

KANYE CUTS CONCERTS SHORT, CONTINUES TO GO ON RANTS
In a string of erratic events, West recently cut several concerts short after arriving to the stage behind schedule, and went on rants about Jay Z and Beyoncé. The behavior is said to be related to the unexpected death of his mother Donda in 2007 and his wife's traumatic experience in Paris, according to new reports. "Kim has had a very rough time since the robbery," said a source close to the reality star. "It hasn't helped that Kanye has been touring. Their lives have been quite chaotic. It's been very trying for them both and not a good recipe for a happy marriage."

KANYE IS HOSPITALIZED FOR 'EXHAUSTION'
The 35-year-old rapper was hospitalized for exhaustion on Nov. 21, but new reports are claiming that West was taken to UCLA Medical Center for a psychiatric evaluation after "acting erratically," reportedly at trainer Harley Pasternak's home. In radio dispatch traffic from the Los Angeles Fire Department obtained by TMZ, emergency crews are heard describing the incident as a "psychiatric emergency."

The source adds: "We're super confident he's going to pull through."
