Kim Kardashian can relate to boyfriend Kanye West because they've both lost parents.
The reality TV star - who has been dating the 'Stronger' rapper for around four months - lost her dad Robert Kardashian in 2003, while Kanye's mother Donda died in 2007 following complications from cosmetic surgery and she thinks their experiences have helped them bond.
She said: ''It's very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands, has gone through the similar things. I can really relate to his mother passing.
''He can really relate to my father passing. I mean, there's so many similarities in our life that ... I feel like I'm at a really happy, good space.''
Kim - who split from second husband Kris Humphries last October after just 72 days of marriage - knew Kanye for several years before their relationship became romantic and she thinks it was their destiny to get together.
The 31-year-old beauty told Oprah Winfrey: ''I don't know why it took so long for us to get together, but I think I needed to go through all my experiences.''
