They met in “2002 or 2003”

And Kanye noticed her. “He was asking his friends: ‘Who is this Kim Kardajan?’ He didn’t know what my name was,” Kim told Ryan Seacrest during the Keeping Up With the Kardashians tenth anniversary special.
But they really connected in 2008
They worked together on a pilot of a show called Alligator Boots back in 2008 wherein Kim played Princess Leia who later shared that this was the first time they “really connected.”
And even though, 3 years later Kim Kardashian married NBA pro, Kris Humphries, it only helped her in figuring out what she “wanted”
But after 72 days of being married, she separated from Kris and after Kanye insistence she went to Paris to see his fashion show. “I swear from the moment I landed, I fell madly in love with him and I thought, ‘Oh, my God, why didn’t I do this sooner?’ Like, this is what real life is like — love and fun and real support,” she once revealed.
And after taking forever to get into a relationship, it’s like they pressed the fast-forward button on their dating phase
In 2012, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West not only went public with their relationship but also confirmed by December that Kim was pregnant with her first child, with West celebrating the happy news on stage at his Atlantic City concert.

After their daughter North was born in June 2013, Kanye West orchestrated one extraordinary proposal at San Francisco’s AT&T baseball stadium in October 2013 and proposed Kim, in front of family and friends.

Soon after, baby no. 2- their son, Saint was born in December 2015, but not without its share of complications
