Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Went to FAO Schwarz on Their First Date
It's good to know hip-hop's most talked about couple can still make time to laugh at themselves. Despite their rich and lavish lifestyle, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West have been known to go on lowkey dates when they get the chance. Now we know where that tradition started.
Kim posted a throwback video of the couple in their younger days today (Feb. 29) on their first official date. Back in 2012, the rapper and reality star went to New York City's iconic toy store FAO Schwarz and let their inner kids run wild. In the short video clip posted on Kardashian's Instagram, the pair is shown playing "Chopsticks" on the store's famous piano mat just like Tom Hanks did in the 1988 movie, Big. FAO Schwarz sadly closed in the summer of 2015 but still houses the memories of the budding Kimye romance. The 15-second clip of course redirects the user to her personal app, to see the full video.
Though they seem like a hip-hop staple now, back in 2012, their relationship was very new and for the most part, under wraps. This piano scene was filmed during Kim and sister Khloe's New York stay for the opening of their East Coast Dash store. Fast forward four years, and Kanye and Kim have a social media following like no other couple entertainment, a happy marriage (aside from Kanye's Twitter rants) and two kids, 2-year-old North and 3-month-old Saint.
