Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s magnificent wedding was quite an event … and no one was more surprised and impressed than the mother-of-the-bride.
And Kris Jenner called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Friday morning to give us some details about the nuptials, as well as her other famous kids — Is Kourtney pregnant again? — and their reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which returns this Sunday.
“Oh my gosh, it’s so difficult to describe in words just because of all the incredible emotion and the majestic setting and everything going on, just all the love,” gushes Kris about Kim and Kanye’s wedding in Florence, Italy. “It was kind of spectacular.”
“I’ve never been to anything quite so incredible in my life, and I think because he did it with such love … he was so excited to surprise Kim. not just once or twice, but over and over and take us all along on this magical journey of his. And it was just the most beautiful thing I think I’ve ever seen in my life.”
As for the bride, who wore a breathtaking Givenchy gown, “She was stunning and happy and in love … and calm,” describes her mother. “You know how Kim is so calm? She’s a quiet storm.”
Kim also was certainly the belle of the ball … and Kanye would not have had it any other way.
“The night before, we were all at Palace of Versailles and Kanye surprised her with one of her favorite artists, Lana Del Rey, who got up and sang maybe five songs,” explains Kris. “It was just stunning at this remarkable place in this magical setting and here’s one of Kim’s favorites … we had the Palace of Versailles to ourselves! And the next day was the wedding and we all flew to Florence.”
But Kanye may have saved his best surprise for last. As his bride walked down the long aisle to her husband-to-be, “she thought she was walking down the aisle to a recording of Andrea Bocelli,” adds Kris. “She comes walking do the aisle an as she kind of turns a bend, because it was so long, she sees Andrea Bocelli standing there singing to her. It was my favorite! When I got up there, I walked down right before her with North, and I was like, ‘What is going on?’”
In addition to John Legend, who was on-hand to perform for the newlyweds, Kris adds, “There was just a lot of happiness. It was just amazing, special energy in the air … the whole feeling was the best feeling I’ve ever had.”
Up next: North‘s first birthday! What does Kanye have planned for that? “We’re still floating on Cloud 9 from the wedding,” says Kris.
In addition to Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons is also in production. But the eldest sister may have another project she’s working on: her third baby.
Are the reports true? ”Well, you know I’ll tell you something about that. I think you’ll get your answer to ‘Is Kourt pregnant’ if you tune into Keeping Up with the Kardashians on Sunday night because hat question will be answered by the end of the show.”
