Kim Kardashian has said in an interview that she doesn’t know why it took so long for Kanye West and her to get together.
During the second part of her sit-down with the Oprah Winfrey on her talk show Next Chapter, the 31-year-old reality star couldn’t help but blush when asked if West was the new fairytale.
“It’s very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands, has gone through the similar things,” the New York Daily News quoted her as saying on the show.
Besides the fame and fortune from both of their careers, Kardashian said the two have a lot more in common than most would think.
“I can really relate to his mother passing. He can really relate to my father passing,” she said.
West’s mother, Donda, died in 2007 from complications of plastic surgery, while her father, Robert, lost his battle to esophageal cancer in 2003.
“I mean, there’s so many similarities in our life that ... I feel like I’m at a really happy, good space,” she said.
Though the two have known each other for nearly a decade, Kardashian said that it was only a matter of time before romance found its way into their friendship.
“I don’t know why it took so long for us to get together, but I think I needed to go through all my experiences and some that he’s gone through,” she added.
