Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are defying divorce rumors by praising each other. Whether it's Kardashian getting gushy over West's Met Gala look or Kanye describing Kim as an empowering role model for other women, the two are making it clear that they're still in love. And when it comes to his appearance, Kardashian expressed her awe for Kanye's eyes, noted Us Weekly.

"I love my husbands eyes at the Met #AfterPartyVibes," wrote Kim on a photo.

And yes, those are light-colored contact lenses that West is sporting, which earned some backlash on Twitter.
In turn, Kanye revealed his view on why Kardashian has earned respect.

"She broke boundaries with fashion where designers weren't trying to make clothes with women with shape, and now they're all about embracing and empowering women. [She's] empowering women in a matriarch society where women can make money....All of those statements means that can't nobody ever disrespect my wife, period."

As for respect, Kardashian and West reportedly had some issues during their visit to Cuba when many residents didn't recognize them, a source told Page Six.

Consequently, when it came to filming Keeping Up with the Kardashians there, it was problematic getting release forms signed.

"They don't have reality TV in Cuba — the Kardashians aren't a big deal. They are like, 'Who are you, why are you filming?'"

In addition, the insider revealed that the lack of technology bothered the Kardashian clan.

"They've had an issue every two seconds about not having internet. They complained they couldn't get on Snapchat. They're frustrated and they can't wait to leave," added the source.

However, a spokesperson for Kim denied those claims, saying that the women in the family were aware that no internet service would be available.

One member of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians family who didn't care about internet service was Kim's and Kanye's tiny son, Saint West.

Making a public appearance that charmed fans with the lookalike profile, Saint was carried by his father, noted Bustle.

And in addition to handling dad duty for his adorable mini-me son, Kanye managed to outdo most other husbands with the extravagant way he celebrated Mother's Day, reported the Daily Mail.

Showing his love for Kim, Kanye employed a string orchestra to serve as her wake-up call on Mother's Day. A total of 10 violin and cello players, with the women dressed in white skirts, offered up a medley of tunes to start the day for the mom of North and Saint.

Kardashian shared elements of her Mother's Day to remember online.

The private concert took place in the couple's Bel Air mansion, with the musicians arranged on a cream-colored rug that matched the female musicians' flowing skirts.

"Mother's Day surprise in my living room!" posted the delighted Kardashian.

West didn't neglect his daughter in his choice of the songs because the music included "Tomorrow" from Annie and "Let It Go" from Frozen.

But the celebration of Mother's Day focused primarily on Kim, including the presentation of a bench bright with pink flowers. Kim's and Kanye's followers made it clear that they were impressed by his Mother's Day choices.

"Kanye West is the man," praised one.

"Kanye never fails," pointed out another.

"In tears!!! Brilliant," exclaimed one moved fan.
