Kanye West says marrying Kim Kardashian and starting a family has helped to quell his ego.

The musician and fashion designer has long been known for his self-righteous attitude and angry outbursts.

But in an interview with T Magazine, the 37-year-old star said he had changed since getting married – though his ego would never disappear altogether.

“I feel like now I have an amazing wife, a super-smart child and the opportunity to create in two major fields,” he told the magazine.

“Before I had those outlets, my ego was all I had.”

He went on to say, however, that he knew his sense self-importance would always be a part of him, comparing it to an incredibly heavy – and ugly – marble table in his home that can’t be removed.

“I realized that table was my ego,” he said.

“No matter what you put around it, under it, no matter who photographed it, the douchebaggery would always come through.”
