The rapper revealed how his life had changed since meeting reality TV star Kim.
"She gave me everything, she gave me family, she gave me a support system," the Gold Digger singer said.
"She was in a powerful enough situation where she could love me without asking me for money, which is really hard for me to find."
When asked whether he gets any time out of his busy schedule for himself he replied, "Yeah, it's like family time. That's what Kim gave me."
He gave the rare insight into his personal life in an interview with BBC Radio One's Zane Lowe.
The interview aired just as new parents Kanye and Kim are making their comeback into the public eye after lying low since the birth of their daughter North West in June.
Most recently they were caught on camera having a fun evening out with P Diddy and Oprah Winfrey.
"Oh no big deal," wrote Kim alongside the photo which she shared on Twitter.
As well as high-profile soirees, the couple have also begun nesting ahead of moving into their $11million Bel Air home.
In recent weeks they have been spotted checking the progress of renovation work as well as shopping for furniture.
