Kanye West is a man in love and he wants the whole world to know it.
The usually private superstar visits Kris Jenner’s talk show on Friday, and in new clips from the pre-recorded segment, he gets candid about his relationship with Kris' daughter Kim Kardashian.
“My grandfather just passed and his whole thing was never about money, it was never about popularity, his whole thing was joy, just joy, like having joy in his life. You know, she's my joy,” confides the 36-year-old, who welcomed daughter North on June 15 with Kim. “She brought my new joy into the world. There's no paparazzi and there's no blog comment and there's nothing that's going to take that joy from me."

When Kanye began dating Kim in the spring of 2012, many critics claimed the relationship would hurt his career. But the new dad wasn’t bothered by it.
"I can have people saying, you know, this is going to damage your credibility as an artist or as a designer, and I say, you know, I don't care, I love this woman,” he revealed to Kris.
“Or someone could say, when the paparazzi surround you - everyone knows you don't like the paparazzi - why would you be with this person?” he adds. “And I'm saying, I'm being with this person because I love this person and she's worth it to me.”

And that worth goes a long way. Kanye admits that after he lost his mother in 2007, he sometimes felt he didn’t have much to live for – until he fell for Kim.
“Now I have two really special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for,” he says.
The musician, who is also set to reveal the first picture of North on the show, says he “dreamed about being next to Kim.”
“I keep saying it, but I don’t want to start jumping up and down on the couch or anything,” he jokingly shares, referring to the time when Tom Cruise appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s show and did exactly that when he talked about then girlfriend Katie Holmes.
Kris’ response? "Oh, please! That would be SO fabulous!"
