Kanye West appeared on Kris Jenner's talk show "Kris" Friday, and he brought a special surprise -- the very first public picture of daughter North West!
The 36-year-old rapper talked about his relationship with Jenner's daughter Kim, their new bundle of joy and how fame comes with a dark side -- namely, paparazzi that constantly follow him and his family.
The proud father also flashed a picture of his daughter during the pre-taped segment. It was the first time anyone outside of family and friends has seen the baby since Kim gave birth to her in June.
West says that he and Kim wanted "to stop all of the noise" surrounding the baby picture reveal, and that's why they chose to reveal it on their own terms on her mother's show.
Here are some of the most memorable quotes from the interview:
On Kim and his daughter: "She's my joy and she brought my new joy into the world. There's no paparazzi... that can take that from me."
On how he has changed since his daughter was born: "I have two really special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a world to live for."
On how he doesn't care if others think his relationship with Kim will hurt his career: "I could have people saying, 'You know, 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," and, "I'm being with this person because I love this person and she's worth it to me."
On experiencing love at first sight with Kim: "I was in love with her before I even ever got to talk to her."
On his feelings about the paparazzi and his family: "The thing I think about is protection. Like that's my only goal is to protect my daughter. That's my instinct."
In addition to revealing the baby picture on the show, an image of West and Kardashian's 2-month-old daughter also appeared on Twitter, posted by Jenner's talk show:
