The 'very happy' new mum gushes about family life

Kim Kardashian has revealed that North West is a very well-behaved baby.

But it sounds like she might not stay that way as Kim, who gave birth to her daughter in June, hopes Nori will start to take after controversial father Kanye West as she gets older.

‘[She’s] the sweetest little girl,’ says Kim, 33.

‘She never cries. She’s a perfect little angel. I hope she grows up to be smart and opinionated like her dad.’

Kim is loving family life and admits that both she and Kanye, 36, had a work break to bond with North after she was born.

‘I just wanted to have time with her and be with her,’ the new mum tells The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

‘This was the one time in life that I could just take off and spend time as a family with me, and him and the baby. So we both took a maternity leave.’

Life in general sounds pretty rosy for Kim, especially since getting engaged to Kanye on her birthday last week.

‘I’m very happy right now,’ she gushes.
