American rapper Lil Durk is finally engaged to his longtime girlfriend, India Royale. The "Backdoor" rapper proposed to his girlfriend on-stage as the crowd cheered him on.


The two times Grammy nominee was performing at the United Center in their Chicago hometown when he called his baby mama on stage and went down on one knee.

The rapper paid an emotional tribute to his girl, saying she had stood by him when he was going through some hard times, adding that she loved her to death.

The crowd roared behind them as the excited 29-year-old said: "You've been holding me down when I was going through a lot. You're the realest, and I just love you to death. Would you want to be my wife?"

After Royale said she would marry him amid tears, the rapper slipped a massive engagement ring on her finger as the crowd went wild with screams at the 107.5 WGCI Big Jam event.


Durk then embraced her before she proudly flashed the massive diamond to the audience. According to the jeweler, Izzy A. Luxury, the ring is a GIA 10 carat Oval shape F VVS center stone surrounded by 30 pointer emerald cuts.

Fellow rappers such as Grammy winner Chance the Rapper and Lil Yatchy congratulated the "Voice of the Heroes" hitmaker for the milestone in his life.



The couple has dated for four years and shares a daughter Willow Banks, but Durk is already a father to a large brood from his many previous failed relationships.

The rapper had his first baby, Angelo Banks, at only 17. He shares her with his then-girlfriend Nicole Covone, who he began dating in 2008.


In 2013, the couple welcomed their second baby together. Bella Banks was born shortly before the couple called it quits and went separate ways.

A few months after welcoming his second child, he fathered his third, Zayden Banks. The identity of his mother, however, remains unknown.


His fourth child is Du'mier, whose mother is also unidentified. The "Should've Ducked" rapper later welcomed his fifth child, Skyler Banks. Though it is unproven, sources say Skyler's mother is Tameka Kute. She was known to be Durk's longtime friend back in the day.

Durk's youngest baby is Willow Banks, who he shares with now fiancée, Royale. They began dating in 2018 and welcomed their baby in 2018.
