Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting married in Florence, and the rapper reveals the city’s special significance in a new interview. “I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces,” he tells local newspaper La Nazione.

West says he loves “Italy and the Italian lifestyle,” confessing that he and Kardashian previously traveled to the Arno River “just the two of us, incognito.” “It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world — for me the most beautiful in Europe,” gushes the groom-to-be.

West, who calls himself a “romantic,” goes on to talk about his Mother’s Day gift for Kardashian, and describes himself as “very happy.” “Family is everything for me, the antidote to the pressure of fame,” says the performer. “Family and creativity relax me. I am happy to create for my family.”

Kardashian is also his “inspiration” for everything from music to fashion. West tells the paper, “I consult her on elegance and what I wear. And she does the same for me. Today as a musician I like to dress in a less showy way than in the past.”

And how is he feeling about the couple’s upcoming big day? “Very excited,” he says.
