Lil Durk proposed to his longtime girlfriend India Royale during a concert in his hometown of Chicago.
The gangster-turned-rapper got down on one knee last Saturday and popped the question to his baby mama during WGCI's Big Jam concert at Chicago's United Center. The 29-year-old rapper began dating India in 2017.
Durk proposed to India after she saved his life by exchanging gunfire with home invaders at their Braselton, Ga. mansion in July. No one was injured during the shooting.

"I love you to death," Durk told her. "You've been holding me down when I was going through a lot. You've been the realest to me. Do you wanna be my wife?"
The 26-year-old Instagram influencer quickly said yes. In addition to their toddler daughter, Willow Banks, India has a daughter named Skylar from a previous relationship. She is also stepmother to Durk's 6 other children by 5 women, including the notorious OTF Nikki.
The auto-tune rapper is founder of Chicago gang OTF (Only the Family). He moved to the Atlanta area to escape the violence in Chicago.
Watch video of the proposal below.
Lil Durk's fiancée, India Cox reportedly exchanged gunfire in a shootout with several home invaders near Atlanta on Sunday morning, July 11.
According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, both Lil Durk, 28, and India, 26, discharged their firearms. But sources say only India fired her weapon.
The couple's toddler daughter was in the home at the time, but she was uninjured.
Durk, real name Durk Banks, is awaiting attempted murder charges in Atlanta and is prohibited from owning or discharging a firearm.
The couple allegedly awoke to the sound of intruders breaking into their rented mansion at 5 a.m. in the Chateau Elan neighborhood of Braselton, Ga., about an hour northeast of Atlanta.
After they exchanged gunfire with the suspects, the intruders fled the home and remain at large. No injuries were reported.
Police say the home invasion was not random and the couple was targeted.
The home break-in occurred hours after federal agents allegedly "raided" Durk's home following a shooting in Atlanta. There were no charges.
Speculation is running rampant that Durk is a federal "snitch" since he was not arrested for having firearms in his home as a convicted felon.
Durk is out on bond following his arrest on attempted murder charges in 2019. Also arrested on the same charge was fellow Chicago gangster rapper King Von, who was killed outside a lounge in downtown Atlanta in November 2020.
Durk's older brother, OTF DThang, born Dontay Banks Jr., 32, was shot and killed following an argument at a strip club near Chicago in June.
Rapper Lil Durk reportedly welcomed a 7th child
support check with an Instagram model who claims the promiscuous rapper fathered her son.
The woman, who goes by the username @queentravonna, angrily lashed out at followers who doubted her claim. She insisted she has the receipts and she implied she is already receiving child support from the promiscuous Chicago rapper.
"LIE FOR WHAT??? Y’all are NOBODY TO PLEASE & HE IS NOBODY TO PROTECT UP AGAINST MY CHILDS INNOCENTS SO AGAIN HAVE A GOOD DAY WE GOT DNA."
In a second post, she wrote:
"PSA Just so we clear y'all MEAN NOTHING TO ME... have a good day."
And in a since-deleted post, she declared: "CHCK CLEARED [sic]."

Lil Durk and his current girlfriend, India Royale, 26, went through a rough patch in 2020 and briefly called it quits. He referred to her as a "lying ho*," and things went south from there.
Somehow they made up again, but this latest rumor may be the last nail in the coffin for Durk.
