Kim Kardashian West wishes she'd got with Kanye 'sooner'

Kim Kardashian West wishes she'd got with Kanye 'sooner'

Kim Kardashian West regrets not dating Kanye West sooner.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star - who is expecting her second child with her rapper husband - says their relationship is completely different than her previous marriages to ex-husbands Damon Thomas and Kris Humphries and she wishes they hadn't stayed in the friends zone for so long before embarking on a romance.

The 34-year-old superstar said: "You know, the first one, I was a teenager, I was like, 'Oh s**t, my parents are going to kill me.' That was the thought that was going through my head - just young and dumb.

"Second time, you know, it's not even in the same sentence. There's just something [now] where I feel I'm so equal with my husband, like, 'This is my best friend.' And I think it helps that we were friends for so long and knew each other for almost 10 years."

Kim - who already has two-year-old daughter North with the 'New Slaves' hitmaker - says she "went through so many mistakes that must have hurt Kanye" before they started dating in April 2012, especially her ill-advised decision to tie the knot with basketball player Kris in 2011, a union that lasted just 72 days of marriage.

Asked how her friendship with Kanye progressed into a romance, she told the July issue of America's Glamour magazine: "There was flirting before, so it was obvious there was attraction, but there was a moment in my mind that clicked when I was like, I'm going to give this a shot. I was probably so tired of bulls**t in the past. I'd gone through a divorce six months before. And I was like, this guy has never bulls****ed me. He had made it clear that this is what he wants, why don't I give it a shot? I went through so many mistakes that must have hurt Kanye, watching me get married, knowing, that's not the right situation for you. So it was a great feeling when I was finally like, 'OK, this is it. My only regret is that I didn't give it a shot sooner. It would have saved so much BS. I feel like I got the fairytale. I should have had even higher expectations, because I got the fairytale."
