New state, new attitude! Turns out, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s decision to reportedly purchase a $14 million ranch in the rocky mountains wasn’t just about privacy. In fact, a source exclusively revealed to Life & Style magazine that the move was, in part, to benefit the pair’s marriage. 

“Kim sees a completely different side to her husband when they spend time in Wyoming as a family,” the insider explained. “He’s much calmer.”

Of course, as the proud parents of four beautiful children — North, 6, Saint, 3, Chicago, 20 months and Psalm, 4 months — the KUWTK star, 38, and “I Love It” rapper, 42, kept their darling brood in mind when deciding where to purchase property outside of California.

“This wasn’t an impulse buy. Kanye waited until he found the perfect place,” the source noted. “There are lots of farm animals roaming around. Saint and North are excited to horseback-ride!”

While horseback-riding may seem dismal in comparison to shopping on Rodeo Drive, Kim and Kanye are seeking a more humble lifestyle these days. “[They] realize there’s more to life than the glitz and glamour of Hollywood,” the insider confessed. “Plus, they get along a million times better when they’re away from the chaos of L.A.!”

In addition to the family as a whole benefitting from spending time in the great outdoors, Kanye’s career also sees an upswing. “He finds it easier to concentrate on his music and art there,” the source revealed.

As far as how the other Kar-Jenners feel about Kim and Kanye’s move? Well, a certain momager isn’t entirely convinced that her daughter can hack it in Wyoming … not long-term, anyway.

“[Kris Jenner] told Kim and Kanye they’re crazy to move to Wyoming,” the insider said. “Kris is convinced Kim will be bored out of her mind!”

Given all of the many business ventures Kim operates — most recently, she launched a highly successful shapewear line called Skims — we suspect it’s impossible for her ever to be “bored.” Don’t be a hater, Kris.
