Despite denying that she's "his Beyonce," Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's relationship just took a turn for the slightly more serious. Yeezy met the rest of the Kardashian clan recently. Do they approve of the pairing?

Indeed they do! TMZ reports that Kim's family adored him and thinks that West and Kim make a super cute couple (er, kute kouple).

Radar Online had a few more details. Apparently the family affair went down at Spice Market restaurant in New York City, with West, Kim, sis Khloe Kardashian (who previously spoke about about the pairing) and husband Lamar Odom, as well as momager Kris Jenner. A spy says 'Ye and Kim held hands on their way back to their waiting limo after the meal. Adorable!

Perhaps West was getting acquainted for his upcoming appearances on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians.' Earlier this month, a source dished on his feelings about the show. “Kanye is head over heels in love with Kim, and he has told her he would love to appear on the reality show if she wants him to. Kim is a bit leery of having her man appear on camera because of the whole fiasco with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Kris Humphries, but watch for Kanye to make several appearances on the show towards the end of the season."

While they may well be smitten with one another, it's obvious there is a public relations goldmine with this relationship -- so that theory may still hold true. Radar also noted that earlier in the day, Kim and Yeezy made sure to smile for every available paparazzo as they strolled around the Big Apple.

In any case, we're happy that Kanye and Kim (KimYe?) are happy!
