Kanye West Jokes About Having A Tom Cruise 'Jump Up On The Couch Moment' On 'Ellen'

Kanye West is so in love with Kim Kardashian that he came this close to jumping up and down and confessing his undying adoration for her on Ellen DeGeneres' couch. (We're looking at you, Tom Cruise!)

In an interview airing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" today (Nov. 19), the rapper struggles to find the words to describe his "dream girl" and fiancee Kardashian, who welcomed the couple's first child, North West, in June.

"I don't know if I can, like, express it enough," he tells DeGeneres. "People make fun of me for how in love I actually am. It just sounds … I just think people are just so cool with their approach to things, you know."

"And also I'm trying to avoid the jump up on the couch moment," he adds, referring to Cruise's infamous freak out on "Oprah" in 2005, where he gushed about his then girlfriend-turned-wife-turned-ex-wife, Katie Holmes.

"But yeah it’s just, it's good," West adds after the audience's laughter commences.

Something else that is good is West and Kardashian's, um, sex life. When DeGeneres asks if the pregnancy was planned or if it just "happened," West confesses, "I mean, we were practicing all the time. Practice makes perfect."

Kanye West > Tom Cruise.
