Chance The Rapper is marrying his childhood sweetheart this weekend and we’re still getting over his announcement on Twitter.

The artist decided to break the news of his big day with his 8million followers by telling the story of how he and his wife first met and it’s honestly the sweetest thing ever.

Chance – real name Chance Owbum – kicked things off by sharing a picture of his wife-to-be back in the day when she was little.

He tweeted: ‘Storytime. A thread on how I met my wife,’ and then explained that the picture was taken back in 2003 on the night he first met her – he was nine years old.

Chance said he’d been at his mum’s work party, probably sitting in the corner ‘on his gameboy, eating candy’ when he was told there was going to be an exclusive performance by Destiny’s Child.

Spoiler alert: it wasn’t, it was his wife and two friends channelling their inner Bey, Kelly and Michelle.

Building up the suspense with the intro of Independent Woman, Chance wrote: ‘All three heads begin to raise slowly in unison. The look like angels. “CHARLIE’s ANGELS” BUM… BUMBUM.

‘”QUESTION TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT ME,” now I’m locking eyes with the prettiest girl I ever seen in my almost-a-decade of life. And I promise I can feel.

‘I shouldn’t even say locked eyes cause really, I was just staring at her.’

He goes on to say that his dad was nudging him trying to get him to upstage the girls with his moves – apparently he’s the bomb at dancing – but he didn’t want to.

‘Young me was shy,’ he said. ‘This wasn’t the time or the place. Not just because it wasn’t my party, not because it was their moment to dance, not even because I was nervous about dancing in front of folks.

‘It’s cause I knew I was gonna marry that girl and I ain’t wanna jump the gun (sic).

‘So I shook my head with anxiety, moved to the back of the crowd and never even introduced myself. 16 years later it’s happening. This wknd is the time and the place is my wedding.

‘I’m gonna dance with my wife because this is my destiny.’

No you’re crying.

Fans absolutely lost it at Chance’s adorable post and they wanted more. They had questions and Chance had answers.

His wife had been Kelly Rowland, she was the daughter of his mum’s boss and he didn’t meet her again until nine years later in Austin, Texas.

There has got to be a reenactment at the wedding, right?!
