>> i don't care. i love this woman. someone can say, you know, when the paparazzi surround you, people, everyone knows you don't like paparazzi. why would you -- you know, why would you be with this person? i'm saying i'm being with this person because, you know, i love this person and she's -- she's worth it to me. she's my joy. she brought my new joy into the world.

>> chris christie joins -- kris joins us on the phone.

>> good morning.

>> tough booking.

>> well, you know, he is my roommate.

>> that's true. was it hard to sit down and talk to con yeah almost like you'll do any other interview even though he's your son-in-law and you're talking about your daughter?

>> you know, i think what surprised me about the interview was i learned things that i didn't have any idea about him. so, yeah, as it evolved i was discovering and learning new things about him, and i think everybody will be super surprised to see this other side of kanye west .

>> well, we really want to see, if you get right to it, chris, the picture of little northwest. did you bring that with you today?

>> oh, i don't know. you're going to have to tune in and see if that appears somewhere.

>> give it up. what does she look like?

>> she looks like -- she's a beautiful combination of the both of them. she is so adorable. not that it's -- you know, has anything to do with the fact that she's my granddaughter. she's cute.

>> chris christkris, i know you asked kany e what it was like to join the family chaos.

>> it's like noise that's happening. i just think it's something where you don't -- i wasn't used to it and now when i'm out, you know, i try to get home early just to be around, you know, my family.

>> oh, that makes me feel really good. really good.

>> i think what's interesting there, kris , is that kanye says he wasn't used to that type of a lifestyle. let's be honest, he was pretty famous before he joined your family.

>> yeah. well, i think that, you know, there's a lot of love there and there's a lot of us, as you guys know, and there's always something going on. and i think that he has blended in to our family in such a big way that when we are away from each other, we miss each other. and i think that we give him this safe haven and a place where he feels really, you know, loved and safe.

>> that's nice. well, kris , thanks for waking up early and talking to us. we appreciate it.

>> well, i wish i was there for you guys but thanks so much for having me on. don't forget to tune in and watch the show.
