Kanye West is an amazing father and boyfriend to Kim Kardashian, according to her mother Kris Jenner.
Jenner, the 57-year-old Kardashian matriarch, recently opened up about West on "Hello Ross," on E!.
"I love him so much, and he's such an amazing boyfriend to Kim and a great dad and a wonderful person," she told host E! talk show host Ross Matthews. "And that's why I thought it was so cool to have him on my show, and I got to sit down with him for an entire hour, and I think people saw this other side to him."
Jenner welcomed the rapper on the finale of her six week talk show pilot in the summer. After West's mother, Donda West, passed away in 2007 during a cosmetic surgical procedure, he has spoken very little about his grieving process.
However, the rapper opened up to Jenner about how her daughter and their new baby girl North West were changing his outlook on things.
"After I lost my mother, there were times I felt like I would put my life at risk," West revealed on Jenner's talk show. "I felt like sometimes I didn't have something to live for, and now I have two really special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for."
Despite his public persona that is often controversial, Jenner revealed that West is a great person that she was happy to welcome to her show.
"He's creative and he's an amazing, amazing human being, he really is. And he doesn't always do interviews and get the chance to really express himself like that, so I was really glad that I got a chance to sit down and talk with him," she said on Hello Ross. "And it made me so happy that, you know, you guys got to see the Kanye that I know at home."
