It's official: Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are getting their own E! reality show that will document their relationship and the birth of their first child together. The engaged couple has been making headlines for months now over their supposed drama with the other members of the Kardashian family, as well as with the details of their whirlwind relationship. Before Blac Chyna makes her reality TV debut, check out nine interesting facts you might not know about her.

1. She Has Gone by Many Names

Blac, 28, was actually born Angela Renée White, but during her career as an exotic dancer, she went by several names, including Dora Renée and Cream, before finally landing on Blac Chyna. There might still be one change in the future, since Blac legally filed to go by the name Angela Renée Kardashian shortly after Rob popped the question.

2. She's Been a Stunt Double

Blac was featured in Kanye West's music video for "Monster" as Nicki Minaj's stunt double back in 2010.

4. She's Been in a Movie

The 2012 film DGK: Parental Advisory follows the DGK crew of young skaters. Blac makes one of many celebrity cameos — DMX, Lil Wayne, and Three 6 Mafia were also included.

5. You've Seen Her in Many Music Videos

Rob's younger sister, Kylie Jenner, wasn't Tyga's first girlfriend to make it into one of his music videos. Blac — who dated Tyga from 2011 until 2014 and shares son King, 3, with him — was actually the lead role in his video for "Rack City." She was also featured in Future's "Rich $ex" and Nicki Minaj's "Come on a Cone."
