Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are the most famous newlyweds in the world. They’re so famous that they’re known simply as “Kimye.”
“GMA” caught up with Kardashian West half of the power couple in France at the Mail Online Party at the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival.
Wearing a white and gold fitted Balmain rope dress, the new Mrs. West was still on cloud nine as she talked about her wedding ceremony in Florence, Italy, last month, and the pre-wedding festivities in Paris.
Kardashian West told “GMA” that she and her rapper husband wanted to surprise all of their guests with the venue of the wedding.
“We were hoping to have everyone at Versailles and then tell everyone ‘okay guys, it's not in Paris like everyone thinks, it's in Florence,’ but a couple of people--it's so hard to keep secrets these days …,” she said.
“It was really intimate, and it was just our closest friends and family … the whole week was just so special,” she added.A picture of the newlyweds kissing in front of a wall of flowers has become the most-liked Instagram picture ever, receiving 2.3 million likes as of Wednesday.
“I'm so glad that so many people liked it and loved that we shared some photos … we wanted to release a couple ourselves just to really share these moments and memories with everyone,” she said of the response to the picture.
The wall that served as the backdrop for the record-setting photo was a custom-made creation comprising gardenias, peonies and roses. It was a wedding surprise from the groom to his bride, and it wasn’t the first time the wall as made an appearance in their lives.
“On Mother's day there was a note on my door because he was out of town, he was there in Florence trying to figure out the whole wedding stuff and I slept in the baby's room and so there was a note on my door when I woke up saying go outside and there was this whole wall of flowers, and it was so special and I didn't know that he was making the same thing at the wedding,” Kardashian West said.
Kardashian West also talked about North, her daughter with West, saying the girl will one day have a sibling.
“When you have a baby so many other things don’t matter that mattered before, all of your priorities change, it’s such a joy, it’s completely, completely changed our lives … I grew up with a lot of brothers and sisters so I don’t know if I’ll follow in my mom’s footsteps and have that many, but I definitely want to have another one,” she said.
As for how she lost weight after pregnancy and regained her famous figure so quickly, Kardashian West said there was no easy way.
“I think diet is really important, I chose to do the Atkins diet which was just really low carbs and that's so hard for me because I love sweets and I really do love to eat so it was so, so hard for me but I chose to make that commitment and I really stuck with it,” she said.
She added that she loves to work out.
“I think there is no simple easy way to get in shape, you really just have to dedicate yourself and whatever you choose to do, as long as you are dedicated to it. I mean, I wake up every day and I work out, there is not a day, it's rare that a couple of days will go by and I haven't worked out,” she said.
