But now they share a beautiful baby daughter named Blue Ivy and often attend public functions as a couple, there was no holding back at the Met Gala 2014 on Monday night. The musicians allowed fans a glimpse into what their earlier relationship might have looked like as they staged a mock proposal on the red carpet in New York City.
The pair made light of the situation when Bey dropped her ring and her partner, whose real name is Sean Carter, responded by pretending to ask for her hand in marriage. The star could be seen laughing along with his wife, as he bowed down to the diva and placed the piece of jewellery on her pinky.
The singer couldn’t help buy giggle as the rapper made sure everything was in place. But he wasn’t the only one fussing over her appearance as the 32-year-old had a man who took care of the train on her sheer black dress too.
Jay Z, 44, was also joined at the bash by his rapper pal Kanye West and his partner Kim Kardashian. The duo are rumoured to have tied the knot over the weekend in America but want to have a lavish ceremony in Paris soon.
It will be the first marriage for Kanye while Kim will be celebrating her third wedding. Her last marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries ended in 2011 after only 72 days of being wed.
