Kim Kardashian West has never been one to do things traditionally – and her courtship with Kanye West was no different.

“I was always attracted to him,” Kim told Access Hollywood of meeting the man who would become her husband. “But when I first met him we worked on a project together and there was definitely a spark, but we were in other relationships, and we kept our distance, and that was really that.”

But, after her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries ended, Kim said she thought, “You know what? Screw it. Like, this is probably what I’ve been waiting for, it’s been in front of my face.’ ” So she gave Kanye a call.

“I called him because I’m sure it was really hurtful that I got married,” she explained. “I knew what he was thinking, so I thought he was going to call me as soon as he knew that I was single, and he didn’t, and so I called him and I said, ‘Hello? I thought you were at least going to call me and say I told you so, something?’ ”

Kim goes on to detail that “the magic happened” between her and Kanye after he invited her to his fashion show in Paris. Now, almost a year since their wedding, Kim feels that bringing Kanye into her life was the “best thing that I ever did,” calling him “the most thoughtful person.”

She even finds his headline-making antics endearing.

“I love that about him,” she said. “That’s who he is, and he loves to express himself, and he’s always been like that.”

As for their future, Kim says she and her husband are “are trying” for a sibling for their daughter North, who will be 2 years old next month.

“We re just hoping that it’s sooner than later,” she adds.
