Kim Kardashian West "fell madly in love" with her husband Kanye West after flying out to see him in Paris.

The 36-year-old reality star began dating the 'Famous' rapper after her split from former husband Kris Humphries in 2011 and has said flying to see Kanye - whom she had been friends with since 2002 - in Paris for his Yeezy fashion show helped her realise what "real life" is like, and made her wish she'd have romanced the star "sooner".

Speaking during the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' 10th anniversary special episode, Kim - who has five-year-old daughter North and 21-month-old son Saint with Kanye - said: "After my break-up I was feeling really low and down and he was like, 'Just come to Paris and see my fashion show'. He jokes that he put on this whole fashion show just to get a date with me.

"I went and I stayed with him and that's where we started dating. I swear from the moment I landed and was there, I fell madly in love with him and I thought, 'Oh my god, why didn't I do this sooner? This is like what real life is like and love and fun and real support. This is what it is.'"

Meanwhile, Kim and Kanye, 40, are rumoured to be expecting their third child together, which is being carried by a surrogate mother after doctors advised Kim against getting pregnant for a third time.

However, sources previously claimed their current brood is less than impressed about the though of a new sibling.

An insider said: "North isn't the most thrilled to be a big sister again. She's had the tendency to get really jealous about Saint and wants all of the attention to herself, but Kim and Kanye thinks it's just a phase and are hoping she will grow out of it."
