(USA Today) -- Kris Jenner doesn't see the raging-and-ranting side to Kanye. To her, he's the father of her grandchild, and he "lives down the hall."
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch gushed about the rapper to Ross Matthews on his Hello Ross show on E! Friday night.
"I love him so much," says Kris of Kanye, who is the father to Kim Kardashian's baby daughter North. "And he's such an amazing boyfriend to Kim and a great dad and a wonderful person."
"And that's why I thought it was so cool to have him on my show, and I got to sit down with him for an entire hour, and I think people saw this other side to him," recalls Kris. "He's creative and he's an amazing, amazing human being, he really is. And he doesn't always do interviews and get the chance to realy express himself like that, so I was really glad that I got a chance to sit down and talk with him."
"And it made me so happy that, you know, you guys got to see the Kanye that I know at home."
During Kim and Kanye's recent jaunt to Paris, Kris says she got to do a bit of baby-sitting. "It was so much fun," says Kris. "It's just a really delicious time with those kids...and she's just the best mom in the world, they're really great parents."
