In case you're unaware, Kanye West is head over heels in love with Kim Kardashian.
The rapper, 36, stopped by On Air With Ryan Seacrest today and couldn’t stop gushing about his bride-to-be in yet another interview this week.
“Kim is definitely not around me to be famous and I’m not around her to be. I’m around her because she’s awesome and she looks amazing and she’s a sweet person,” he told Ryan. “It’s an unfair level of awesomeness in one person to be that smart, to be that nice to be … blatantly fine as hell. Like, one of the most beautiful people of all time. She’s not hard to wake up to.”
He also dished about their proposal, which he said he was able to keep a secret until it happened on Kim’s 33rd birthday, Oct. 21.
“I just didn’t tell anybody. Everybody that came in just thought it was a surprise party. So of course I didn’t tell her that anybody was coming in and she knew I was going to do something for her birthday, so as soon as she heard the Lana [Del Ray] song playing, she just figured I was going to have Lana sing and we were going to have dinner,” shared Kanye, who welcomed daughter North with Kim on June 15. “Because at a certain point she just knows I’m going to do something turnt up, so she was expecting something awesome.”
And awesome is what she got. The musician popped the question in front of their closest friends and family at AT&T Park in San Francisco as a 50-piece orchestra performed.
While he might exude a ton of confidence, Kanye admitted that he was nervous before he got down on one knee — especially because he was about to propose to his dream girl.
“I was talking to her cousin. I was like, ‘I don’t know, what do you think she’s going to say?’ I’m not arrogant about love and feelings at all. I’m confident in the work I put so much work into, but this is someone else’s feelings,” he recalled. “You never know what someone else may feel at the time. I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time. I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton … and I remember telling my boy … ‘Have you seen that girl Kim Kar-dijon?’”
Kanye also confirmed that Kim will take his last name and that he will wear a wedding ring once they tie the knot.
