Kris Jenner May Be The Biggest Kanye West Fan Around (Don't Tell Kim!)
At this point, it's no secret that Kris Jenner is heavily invested in her family. Not only is she a mom of six, but she's also her kids' manager (hence her title as "momager"). She's constantly cheering on the crew — whether Kendall Jenner's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show performance or Kim Kardashian's Kimoji app. She takes the phrase "proud mom" to a whole new level, and that doesn't just apply to her own children; it extends to her children's spouses too. In the March issue of Harper's Bazaar, Jenner gushed over Kanye West. She told the magazine,
I couldn't be prouder. One thing people don't realize about him is, not only is he so beyond talented, but he's also a genius. And when he's here, he's so present. He's the best daddy, and the best husband. Kim is so lucky to have him.
Those are some pretty high compliments! She's not only a fan of his musical work, but his brain too. Plus, it sounds like she thinks Kim really has the best possible match. It's nice to hear she approves, considering people frequently share horror stories of not getting along with their in-laws. There's no drama here!
This isn't the first time that Jenner gushed over her son-in-law. Here's a round up of other times that she was 'Ye's biggest cheerleader.
1. On His Birthday
Last year on West's birthday, Jenner posted a thoughtful message on Instagram. She wrote,
Happy Birthday to my son @kanyewest #KanyeWest !!!! You are such an amazing Daddy, husband, friend, son and brother...you are such a special part of my family and we feel so blessed. Thank you for sharing your passion, creativity and love with me each and every day. You are such an inspiration! Have the best day!!! #love #family #lovebug
Doesn't that just warm your heart? The #lovebug hashtag is pretty precious too.
2. After The Wedding
Sadly, no one will ever know about the pre-wedding pep talk that West gave. But based on Jenner's Instagram, it looks unforgettable.
On Mother's Day, Jenner took the opportunity to give a shoutout to a good dad. Although West's mother died in 2007 and Jenner acknowledges she will never replace her, she still views him as her son and loves him like one. So sweet! Plus, their selfie game is strong.
4. Standing Up To Haters
After a news anchor on ABC joked about Kimye having no talent, Jenner wouldn't stand for it. She posted an Instagram of the clip, sticking up for her daughter and son-in-law. Not only did she list all of Kardashian's accomplishments, but she also defends West, who "among his many talents has won 21 Grammys." She totally shuts it down.
5. Magazine Covers
West appeared on the cover of TIME 's 100 Most Influential People issue in 2015, so naturally Jenner supported him. She sarcastically wrote "oh no big deal" in the caption to imply that this obviously is a big deal.
She also promoted his story when he appeared in The New York Times' T Magazine. She's always there to celebrate his appearances in the press.
6. Supporting His Style
When West was voted GQ 's Most Stylish Man of the Year, Jenner not only encouraged her Twitter followers to vote for him. She also applauded his victory.
Honestly, when you see all of the evidence above, it's not too surprising that Jenner considers West a "genius." She's practically his number-one fan — just don't tell Kim.
