Kim Kardashian had no idea her husband was going to announce he was running for president during the Video Music Awards in August.

“I did not. That was news to me,” Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres during an interview Tuesday. “That wasn’t a discussion in our household. I don’t know if that was planned, and I just didn’t know about it, or if he came up with that idea right then and there.”

“That’s a big thing to, you know, not talk to your wife about.” (VIDEO: Kanye West: ‘I’m Running For President In 2020’)

But she said West is serious about running.

“I believe he is serious and I know that, you know, if he puts his mind to something he’ll do his best. You know, it’s been fascinating just hearing all of the conversations that have gone on since that announcement.” (RELATED: Kanye West Just Called This Republican Candidate ‘Brilliant’)
