In the past, Yeezy discussed wanting to start a family and get married one day.
"I'm a hopeless romantic and I'm looking and trying to decide who the mother of my child will be. It's not going to be based off a whim of being in love; she has to bring a certain level to the table. I want to be married, I want that super-dope counterpart, that one woman, but she has to be super-fresh, super-smart and not overwhelmed by her career. I'll find her, maybe I'll be 38 ... maybe I'm not fully who I am yet, maybe that's why I haven't found her ... The main quality is that you know that this person will ride or die for you. Whether she's mad at you, whether she's with you or nor, she still loves you, she stills bigs you up in any circle. She doesn't talk down about you to other people. That's the main thing that I need." (ID Magazine)
