    There's the hard, tough Kanye West, and there's the sweet, so-in-love Kanye West!

    During his appearance on "The Kris Jenner Show," the new daddy shows off his soft side, gushing about how much he loves Kim Kardashian and baby North West.

    "I could have people saying this is going to damage your credibility as an artist or as a designer, and I say, I don't care. I love this woman," 'Ye tells Kris. "Or someone could say you know, 'When the paparazzi surround you, how could you ...everyone knows you don't like paparazzi, but why would you, why would you be with this person?"

    His answer? "And I'm saying I'm being with this person because, you know I love this person," he says. "And she's worth it to me."

    "She's my joy," he adds, "and she brought my new joy into the world."

    And Kim didn't just welcome Nori into Kanye's life--she introduced him to the whole Kardashian-Jenner clan. "After I lost my mother [Donda West, in 2007] there was times I felt like I would put my life at risk. I felt like sometimes I didn't have something to live for, and now I have two really special people to live for," the rapper says, looking to Kris, "A whole family to live for. A whole world to live for."

    Kanye loves Kim so much, he has to restrain himself from going full Tom Cruise on-the-couch.

    "I just dreamed about being next to her, and any time I could just--I don't know," he grins. "I keep saying it, but, I don't wanna start jumping up and down on the couch or anything..."

    "Oh, please," Kris tells him, laughing at his cutoff lovefest for Kim. "That would be so fabulous!"

    That would be awesome, yes, but even more exciting is the fact that Mr. West will be debuting his and Kim's 2-month-old daughter on Friday's "Kris Jenner Show". Yes, for real. Check your local listings for tune-in information.
