Kanye West talks Kimye, baby with Ellen DeGeneres

Kanye West professes his love for Kim Kardashian to Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday, but avoids the "jump-up-on-the-couch moment."

"I don’t know if I can express it enough," he says of his love for his fiancé after referencing Tom Cruise's infamous appearance on "Oprah." "It's almost like people make fun of me for like how in love I actually am it just sounds."

The Chicago native also debuts his "Bound 2" music video, in which Kardashian appears. "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" airs at 3 p.m. Tuesday on WMAQ-Ch. 5 in Chicago.

West calls Kardashian, with whom he has a child, the perfect foil for him because her relaxed demeanor calms him. As you can see in the videos here, the rapper says Kardashian was there for him at his lowest moments and made him feel like "I was here for a reason and I was, you know, I had something to say and just support me through that."

She also doesn't want his money, he says.

"It's incredible to have a woman like that, that you know is not using you for money," he says. "I just have to word it like that because once you become like a multi-millionaire there's a certain type of women out there that they go for that and they'll put on the whole act and everything."

West gets another joke in when DeGeneres asks if having his baby girl, North West, was planned.

"We were just practicing all the time and then practice made perfect," he says. "Practice makes perfect."

The conversation doesn't end without a little of West's now common defense of his creative process. West says he created his DONDA agency--a content, experience and product agency--with its variety of artists and others to help him gain an educated perspective to comment on other fields.
He wants to "create the new Disney," he says. "I want to bring awesomeness to the world."
