It's official! Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose are ready to tie the knot. After months and months of rumors suggesting that they had gotten engaged—or, at the very least, were planning on getting engaged—Wiz popped the question late last week...and Amber said yes! The happy couple even showed off the ring that he gave her on Twitter, just to let us know that it was real.
It's been quite the whirlwind year for the pair. Although they've only been dating since the beginning of 2011, it seems like they've been together for years now, simply because of all the moments they've shared publicly. So to help celebrate their recent engagement, we thought we'd put together a list of the 10 most memorable moments of their relationship. From the early days of their courtship to their recent engagement, this is how Mr. "Black and Yellow" and Kanye West's ex-boo became one of hip-hop's biggest power couples. Consider this an early wedding gift from us, guys.—Chris Yuscavage
