Kanye Claims His Daughter Was Conceived “Among Renaissance Masterpieces”

Yes, you read that right. The Daily Mail reports that while announcing his plans to wed Kim Kardashian in Florence, the rapper confessed that the couple had spent some time in the Italian city before.

“To tell you the truth,” West said, “I already came to the banks of the Arno [river] with Kim last year, just the two of us, incognito… I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces.”

While it kind of sounds like he is confessing to doing the dirty in a museum, it’s probable that he means “renaissance masterpieces” as a reference to the city as a whole. We hope.

The wedding will reportedly take place in the 16th-century castle and Florentine landmark Forte di Belvedere. The venue reopened last year after having been closed for years after two young people fell from the ramparts in 2006 and 2008.

West is also said to be working on a new album, entitled Made in Florence.
