When it comes to celebrity couples, few are more fascinating than Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna. Within a matter of months, the unexpected pair got engaged and announced a pregnancy. Considering the complicated history of drama surrounding the two, it's definitely a love saga worth following. However, people are quick to think that it's all part of a publicity stunt, since so much has happened in such a short time. While I'm all about believing the best in people, their latest Instagram posts are pretty insightful. Kardashian and Chyna's photos reveal that they aren't afraid to profit off of their relationship. No, I'm not saying their connection isn't sincere. Instead, they really don't hesitate to promote their love — and various products along with it, like Chyna's line of emoji.
Showing that she knows the value of her soon-to-be surname, Chyna reportedly already filed legal documents to trademark the name Angela Renee Kardashian. Because come on, everybody knows there's fame attached to the Kardashian name. According to the docs reportedly obtained by TMZ, this name would be used for "entertainment services," such as "personal appearances by a social media celebrity, model, actress and performer." Interesting, huh? If true, this certainly would imply a focus on potentially profiting off her public persona. (Bustle has reached out to a rep for Chyna regarding the trademarking reports, but has not received a response.)
Considering Chyna and Kardashian are constantly together and gushing over one another, I'm not saying it's all an act. I'm just pointing out that they know how to make the most out of their romance, especially when it comes to promotional posts on Instagram. I've rounded up a few examples, so you can see exactly what I mean.
Exhibit A: Teeth-Whitening Ads
Apparently they're part of #TeamSexySmile. Despite the fact that they're promoting a teeth-whitening tool, those toothy grins do look genuine. Their body language is everything.
However, I must point out that Chyna's engagement ring is front and center. Something tells me that was a very intentional pose.
Exhibit B: Club Appearances
It looks like these two are living the Scott Disick lifestyle. In other words, visiting clubs and making appearances. This sure seems like a way to promote not only the night clubs, but the couple itself. Because really, who doesn't want to party with ChyRo?
Exhibit C: ChyMoji Promotion
Since Blac Chyna created ChyMoji, aka her own line of emoji, she's been promoting the app non-stop. Same goes for her fiancé. Kardashian doesn't hesitate to encourage his followers to download it. Probably because he's a staple in the app. There's little icons of them with their baby-to-be's stroller and some NSFW options too.
Still, there are definitely a few heartwarming Instagram posts nestled in-between. For example, on Chyna's birthday, Kardashian surprised her with 28 bouquets to commemorate her 28 years of life. How sweet is that?
Based on all of the above, it appears that these two really do love each other — and they love getting their names out there. But considering the spotlight is on them anyway, I can't fault them for making the most of it.
