Kim Kardashian may be the apple of Kanye West’s eye — or the dinosaur to his blowfish, as it were — but she’s not the only member of the Kardashian clan who has thoroughly impressed the notoriously picky rapper.


In his recent interview with GQ, Kanye gushed about his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, explaining that he was thrilled to feel so accepted by her and have a new mother figure in his life.

Having someone that I can call Mom again. That s–t is super cool,” Kanye told the magazine.

Kanye has long been vocal about his love for his late mother, Donda, who died in 2007 from surgical complications.

During his appearance on Kris’ short-lived talk show, Kanye explained that his mother’s death had been a crushing blow, causing him to fall into a depression that was only lifted by his relationship with Kim and the birth of their daughter, North.

"There were times I would put my life at risk,” Kanye explained of the period following his mother’s death. “I didn't have something to live for. Now I have two very special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for.”
