kim kardashian kanye west love at first sight Kanye West: It was love at first sight with Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian might have gotten the fairy tale relationship she wanted after all. According to new fiance Kanye West, he’s been in love with her from the get-go.

“I loved her from the first day I saw her,” West tells Hot 97 radio host Angie Martinez. “I remember seeing pictures of her and Paris Hilton in Australia, and I came to Don C., and I was like, ‘Man, have you ever seen Kim Kardishawn? What’s up with Kim Kardishawn?'”

When asked if West always knew Kardashian was the one, he says, “Oh yeah, 100 percent. [But] I had to work for it.”

Sorry, Kris Humphries, but you’ve now been relegated to footnote status in this epic love story.

“Our love story’s a love story for the ages,” West claims. “I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing, where it’s like, she’s a reality star and I’m a rapper, and people talk about how our brands connect and what doesn’t fit. And I’m just so tired of the conversation of brands.”
