Kanye West reportedly wants to honeymoon in space.

The Yeezus star is gearing up for his nuptials to fiancée Kim Kardashian, which are rumoured to be taking place this year.

But instead of the usual getaway to a beach in the sunshine, Kanye is said to want to visit outer space and enjoy his holiday among the stars.

"Kanye is obsessed with space and anything sci-fi - he's shot many spaceship themed videos and he even considered training as an astronautical engineer. Now he's fixated on the idea of honeymooning in space," a source revealed to Britain's Grazia magazine.

The 36-year-old singer is reported to have spoken to the people behind the world's first ever space hotel to make a reservation for himself and Kim.

The CSS Skywalker will be an inflatable 330 cubic-meter station created by Bigelow Aerospace, and has been in the pipeline since 2009.

But timing could be an issue, as the hotel isn't set to be launched until 2015, with stays costing $1million a night.

"Kanye is saying this will be their third honeymoon, as it won't be ready for another year, so they'll have two others before then.

"They're multi-millionaires, so money is no object. Apparently, Kim wasn't keen at first, but Kanye has talked her around and there's even talk it will be chronicled on her reality show," the source added.

The pair got engaged in October 2013, with Kanye pulling out all the stops to impress 33-year-old Kim.

He hired an entire baseball park in San Francisco to get down on bended knee.

The pair have six-month-old baby daughter North together.
