It was a secret relationship that "took everyone by surprise." Now, after a whirlwind romance which has already seen a pregnancy and an engagement in just six months, the couple could be on the rocks already.
Did you expect anything less from TV's First Family? The relationship between Rob and Blac most definitely struck a chord with the Kardashian clan – and for good reason. Here's a quick recap to catch you up on why this would be a wildly unexpected pairing: Blac Chyna, 27, is rapper Tyga's ex ,and the two have a son together, King Cairo, 3. Blac Chyna was previously close pals with Kim Kardashian West, though the friendship appeared to fizzle after Tyga, 26, started dating Kardashian West's sister Kylie Jenner, 18.
January 2016: The beginning
Rob, is that you? After Blac posted a now-deleted photo with an unidentifiable man's tattoo-clad arm to her Instagram, writing, "The beginning." Fans began to claim the man in question was indeed Rob.
The relationship would go on to become Rob's first high-profile relationship since his 2012 romance with singer Rita Ora.
One day after his relationship with Blac makes headlines, Rob trolls his family with a Blac Chyna meme suggesting she could have his baby.
February 2016: Diamonds are a girl’s best friend
Don't be fooled by the rocks that she's got. After Blac posted several suggestive pictures and videos of herself sporting a massive diamond ring on that finger back in February, rumours began swirling that the model and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star were engaged. But it wasn't true, WHO learned quickly after. "Chyna is all about attention, and that's probably why she keeps flashing the ring," the source said.
March 2016: Break up, make up
In an attempt to address break-up rumours following deleted Instagram posts of his girlfriend, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star took to his Instagram announcing that he and Blac are looking to keep their relationship as private as possible. "It's impossible to have a positive relationship with so much negativity from the media and outsiders and we would appreciate if it everyone respects that," he writes. Another important update? Kardashian has coined a couple name for them: ChyRo.
A romantic getaway
Rob joined his ladylove in Jamaica, where Blac was set to make a club appearance in March. The pair was seen cuddling and being affectionate with each other while at the event, according to onlookers.
Rob bond's with Blac’s son
Despite having only started dating Rob in January, Blac was quick to introduce son King Cairo, 3 – her son with rapper (and Kylie Jenner's boyfriend) Tyga, to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star. The trio have spent time together on Easter Sunday and kicked off Rob's birthday at Legoland.
April 2016: Feeling inspired
Rob reveals on Instagram that he’s lost 50 pounds and calls Blac Chyna his “motivation.”
According to several sources close to formerly reclusive Kardashian member, Rob began adopting a healthier lifestyle and more positive outlook in life after linking up with the model and business owner. "Rob has fallen hard for Blac Chyna. She makes him super happy and this is the first time that he's felt so optimistic about life in years," a source tells WHO. "For the first time in forever, Rob seems very excited about the future."
Rob and Black pump up the PDA
Whether it's Instagram or Snapchat, the pair are quick to show off their love/lust/affection for one another in a series of videos and photos that range from sweet to NSFW. Other snaps have featured Blac exclaiming "I want to have a baby!" as well as other clips of the pair alluding to marriage and starting a family together.
No (more) bad blood here
Despite a tense start, the Kardashian family is working towards accepting Rob's new love. The couple's biggest supporter? Rob's mom, Kris Jenner. "[She is] actually super stoked on them together now," a source tells WHO. "She feels like Rob was pulled out of his depression phase because of her." Rob has also been spotted hanging out with younger sister Kylie Jenner, who was previously "super betrayed" upon hearing about the pair's budding romance.
After dating for 10 weeks, Rob Kardashian puts a (very hefty) ring on it – officially deeming him and Blac Chyna engaged. The ring, which boasted 7 carats, was designed by the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's childhood friend who works as a jeweller.
May 2016: Blac Chyna is pregnant
They may have just gotten engaged one month ago, in April, but the pair is taking to Instagram yet again to announce their most recent news with an emoji: They're expecting their first child together. "I can confirm she's pregnant and of course she's happy," Chyna's rep tells WHO.
June 2016: Family matters
Although Chyna and Kardashian's relationship initially sparked tension among the Kardashian family, Chyna was welcomed with open arms after the crew realised how much of a positive impact the model has on Rob. Chyna even joined in on future sister-in-law Khloé's 32nd birthday party on June 27, which was also attended by Kim, Kourtney, Kylie and Kris.
July 2016: Happier than ever
"I think that he's in a very good place right now, and he's more comfortable in his own skin, and he's back to being the old Rob,"Kris Jenner said during a July 2016 interview, opening up about her only son and the positive impact his fiancée has had on him. "The old Rob is so funny and so engaging and so charming and such a wonderful guy and to see that disappear for a minute broke my heart. So to have him in this happy place, it means everything."
Kardashian recently went on one of his many social media cleanses, wiping all traces of Chyna on his Instagram – leaving a single photo of himself on his account. The action on July 25 took fans by surprise, seeing as the star is very vocal about his love for the model.
Despite Kardashian's decision to rid himself of PDA-packed 'grams, sources close to Chyna said "they're not broken up." "They filmed [their upcoming E! reality show] over the weekend and had an argument," a separate source shared with WHO, adding, "It's hard to see Rob and Chyna actually splitting. Rob is looking forward to becoming a dad. It would take a lot for him to break up with her."
Bling it on
While the pair haven't addressed Kardashian's deleting spree, Chyna put breakup rumors to rest by flaunting her diamond engagement ring during a beauty tutorial on her Snapchat. Casual.
