Kanye West: I Have “Never Loved Any Girl” As Much As I Love Kim Kardashian

D’aww. Who knew behind the crazy antics, the shutter shades and leather pants, Kanye West is actually quite the softie?

In a video interview he participated in just hours before popping the question to girlfriend Kim Kardashian, the rapper gushed about just how “happy” he is to spend his life with the mother of his daughter, North West.

“I have never loved any girl, other than my mother, as much as I love my girlfriend,” he told San Francisco’s KMEL radio.

“I’m so happy to be with her, to live this life together, and — with our relationship with God — to be able to live forever in heaven together, and also to raise a strong family that communicates truth and beauty.”

Though West did dodge the hosts’ marriage questions, the world pretty much figured the answer to that later on this week.
