Kanye reveals his softer side as he gives a first glimpse at his baby daughter on Kris Jenner's show and talks about the joy brought by Kim and their daughter to his life.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter North West was finally introduced to the world. A picture of the 2-month-old baby was revealed on social media and later on the season finale of Kris Jenner's talk show. Wearing a black outfit, the tot looks adorable with her chubby cheeks as she's reaching toward the camera.
"It's all this talk about baby pictures and can you get paid for the baby picture or do you want to put it on a magazine," Kanye said on "Kris". "And for me and your daughter we have not attempted to get paid for anything, we have not attempted to put it on a magazine. You just stop all of the noise and I thought it would be really cool on her grandmother's season finale to bring a picture of North."
"She has Kim's eyes and Kanye's cheeks," proud grandmother Kris commented. "Some days she has your lips, some days she has Kim's lips." The rapper, meanwhile, joked, "I pray that she looks like her mother when she's older," when asked whom he thought his daughter looked like.
Kanye also cracked a joke at his own expense, "I'm supposed to be this musical genius and everything and I can't really work the car seat that well." Regardless, Kris said he embraced fatherhood quite well and she'd come to know his "soft" and "sweet" side. "Please don't call me soft as a rapper," he quipped.
"I'm being with this person because, you know, I love this person. She's worth it to me," he later stated. "She brought my new joy into the world. There's no paparazzi and there's no blog comment that's going to take that joy from me." He went on, "Now I have two really special people to live for."
After the death of his mother Donda West in 2007, "there were times I felt I would put my life at risk," he said. "I felt like sometimes I didn't have something to live for. Now I have two really special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for."
"Even at my lowest points, the last thing I would want to happen to my daughter is some crazy drunk black guy in a leather shirt to come up and cut her off at an awards show. That's the last thing I would want, right," he said with laugh, referring to his infamous stunt at the MTV VMAs where he interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech. "You know, I was just like a crazy rock star."
"It's really brought us closer because there is someone more important to us than us for the first time," Kanye added.
