After originally planning to tie the knot in Paris, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are now planning to marry in Florence, Italy on May 24. That’s according to the Italian newspaper La Nazione, which also claims the couple will have their reception at the city’s 16th century Fort Belvedere.
This will be Kanye’s first marriage, and Kim’s third. She was previously married to producer Damon Thomas and basketball player Kris Humphries. Kim and Kanye got engaged this past October.
In an interview with La Nazione, Kanye said, “I love Florence, I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle,” and say she and Kim had visited the city last year, secretly. “I think we conceived our daughter North here…It was our first honeymoon,” he added. “It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world; for me, the most beautiful in Europe.”
The paper asks Kanye if he’s excited, now that May 24 is approaching. He says he’s “pretty excited, but very happy” about the event. He also says that he’s a romantic, noting that he gave Kim a “wall of flowers” for Mother’s Day. When asked if Kim is his muse, he replies, “Of course.”
