Kanye West is showing fans a softer side by expressing his love for his future wife and their daughter on Twitter.

West, the 36-year-old rap mogul, may not be an avid tweeter, but since landing a Vogue magazine cover with fiance Kim Kardashian, 33, he has been expressing his excitement for accomplishing the feat. While sharing a picture from the Vogue photo shoot where Kim is lovingly kissing their 9-month-old daughter North West, Kanye expressed his sentiments.

"I love my family," he tweeted in a message that was re-tweeted by Kim.

West and Kardashian welcomed their daughter North West into the world last June and while the former has been accused of being an opportunist by some in the past, the rapper insists their relationship is deeper than that.

"She gave me everything. She gave me a support system," West told BBC Radio 1 previously. "She's in a powerful enough situation that she could love me without asking for money, which is really hard for me to find."

West previously opened up to "12 Years A Slave" director Steve McQueen about his future wife and daughter, whom he likened to astronauts.

"You know, becoming famous is like being catapulted into space-sometimes without a space suit. We've seen so many people combust, suffocate, get lost in all these different things," West told McQueen in Interview magazine. "But to have an anchor of other astronauts and to make a little space family ... I mean, it's not like I'm the guy in The Hunger Games begging for people to like me. I'm almost the guy with the least amount of 'likes.'"

He spoke about the need to have a family and how God gave him just that.

"I wanted a family," he told McQueen. "So God gives you opportunities, and you make sacrifices for something that's greater."
