Kendall Jenner on Her New Niece Dream Kardashian: Rob Is So Happy, 'I Could Literally Cry'

Posted on

 

It’s safe to say Dream Kardashian is definitely daddy’s little girl.

During an appearance on Wednesday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kendall Jenner took a moment to gush about her niece — and the special bond she shares with dad Rob Kardashian.

“She’s a dream — she’s so beautiful,” says Jenner, 21. “I went and met her the day [she was born].”

While Jenner says 6-day-old Dream looks just like Rob’s late father Robert Kardashian, host Ellen DeGeneres point out she also shares a striking similarity to Rob himself.

“Yeah! I mean, it’s crazy,” says Jenner. “He’s so happy and it makes me so happy I could literally cry. He’s like, the cutest. I love it.”

Dream arrived via c-section at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Proud parents Rob and his fiancée Blac Chyna haven’t been shy about showing off their little girl, regularly snapping pictures and videos of her — and even signing her up for her very own Twitter and Instagram accounts.

And according to an insider, Rob can hardly contain his happiness.

“Rob was so emotional. He started crying when he saw his daughter,” a source told PEOPLE last week. “He’s been waiting for this moment for such a long time! She already has him wrapped around her finger.”
