Kanye West is set to open up on life as a new father, his turbulent relationship with the press and his romance with Kim Kardashian. The rap star taped a special interview for Kris Jenner’s talk show on Monday, US Weekly reports.
An insider told the magazine that the notoriously private musician was “really bringing it” for the interview as he chatted about Kim, their two-month-old daughter, North, and living with the show’s host Kris.
Kanye, 36, even makes a little joke at Kim’s expense, saying that he’s been “so in love” with Kim, who he started dating in April 2012, that he thought about “playing sports” — Kim was previously married to basketball star Kris Humphries and dated NFL player Reggie Bush.
Kanye’s hour-long interview will mark the end of Kris’ trial summer run of her talk show. It is set to air on Friday 23 August as the finale episode of Kris.
New mum Kim, 32, has already made a surprise appearance on her mum’s show — albeit by video message.
“I just wanted to say congratulations on your new show,” the reality star said on camera. “I’m sorry I couldn’t be there in person, but I’m just loving life a little bit too much at home right now.”
Fans are still waiting for their first glimpse of little North, who was born five weeks ahead of her due date, on 15 June at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in LA.
The new family have started to emerge into the public eye. They were spotted out and about together for the first time on 15 August — although baby ‘Nori’ was carried in a car seat that was covered by a blanket.
The couple have received of plenty of media offers for the first pictures of their daughter, but ! understands that they have so far not accepted any of these offers.
It was recently reported that Kanye West has bought a £776,000 armoured car to keep Kim and their first child safe.
“Kanye is fully aware that his new family is so high profile that they attract the attention of weirdos and psychopaths,” an insider was quoted as saying. “He aims to leave nothing to chance.”
Kanye recently spent time promoting his new album Yeesuz in Greece, but quickly returned to be with Kim and Nori in Los Angeles.
“Everything he does is for Kim and the baby,” said a source. “So when he jets out, believe me, it’s for something that’s got a lot of money attached – and that money is for his family.”
