Kanye West makes Kim Kardashian feel ''special''.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star - who split from husband Kris Humphries in October after just 72 days of marriage - has been dating the rapper since April and says they are very happy together.
She said: ''It's been tough since the break up of my marriage but I always believed I would find love again and I'm so happy I have. I'm always smiling in Kanye's company and he makes me feel so special.''
Kim and Kanye were friends for eight years before embarking on a romantic relationship and the brunette beauty thinks that is why they work so well as a couple.
She said: ''Me and Kanye spend time as friends first and I see a real benefit in that.
''Once a relationship goes past the honeymoon phase, you need the strong base of friendship to keep it working.''
Despite her reality TV shows depicting rows between herself, sisters Khloe and Kourtney and their mother Kris Jenner, Kim insists they never have a real problem with one another.
She told Closer magazine: ''The arguments never last long. My um is the rock of the family. And my sisters and I work together, so we fall out.
''But when you read that we've not spoken for weeks, it's never true. We're a close family.''
