*Will an appearance from her grandbaby daddy be enough to make folks tune into Kris Jenner’s daytime talk show?

The Kardashian matriarch will end her trial run of summer shows with an appearance by her daughter Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend Kanye West.

According to Us Weekly, the rapper earlier today (Aug. 19) taped his appearance on “Kris,” where he talked about his relationship with Kim and their 2-month-old daughter, North.

An insider tells Us the rapper was “really bringing it” for the interview and opened up about the baby, living with Kris Jenner, his relationship with the press and love for Kardashian.

West even joked that he’s been “so in love” with Kim, whom he began dating in April 2012, that he thought about “playing sports.” (Kardashian, 32, was previously married to NBA player Kris Humphries and dated NFL player Reggie Bush.)

A second source tells Us Weekly that West’s interview will air Friday, Aug. 23, which is the finale episode of Jenner’s six-week trial summer run.

Kardashian already made a surprise appearance on her mom’s show on Aug. 2 — but only via a video message. The new mom kept her post-baby body hidden by only showing her face in the tape. “Hey mom, I just wanted to say congratulations on your new show,” she said. “I’m sorry I couldn’t be there in person, but I’m just loving life a little bit too much at home right now.”
