Like any other proud grandmother, Kris Jenner is happy to gush about daughter Kim Kardashian and hernew baby girl, North West.

Appearing on the "Today" show Tuesday, Jenner said baby North West, who is just over a week old, is "amazing."

"Everybody's doing really well at home. ... The baby's doing great and happy and healthy, and it's a really joyful time," she added.

Later Tuesday, while appearing on "The View," Jenner explained the significance of her granddaughter's compass-inspired name.

"I love the name North," Jenner said of her third grandchild's moniker. "I'm pro-North, absolutely. The way [Kim] explained it to me was that North means Highest Power, and she says that North is their highest point together. And I thought that was really sweet."

Jenner was making the media rounds to promote her upcoming talk show, "Kris," which premieres July 15.
