Ronaldo Schemidt/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Naturally Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had a slew of visitors after their daughter North West was born on June 15, but joining the Kardashian clan and the new parents was an rather unusual guest. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak visited the couple and baby in the hospital just a day after the birth, and has now described the meeting to ABC News.

The visit was set up by Kardashian herself who had arranged for Kanye's birthday to have the two meet for a surprise lunch and have Wozniak sign one of two Apple Pro Computer mice. The other mouse had already been signed by Steve Jobs. West has said recently that he is a big admirer of the iconic Apple co-founders.

"It was going to be a big surprise for Kanye," Wozniak told ABC News in an interview. "What a beautiful idea from Kim."

"One of the other gifts my girl gave me for fathers day," West tweeted this week along with a photo of the autographed mice. They were originally meant to be a birthday present to Kanye, who was born on June 8. Given the timing, it turned into a Father's Day present, which fell a day after North West was born.

"I signed the mouse in front of him," Wozniak said. "It's really rare, both our signatures in matching form."

Steve Jobs, who started Apple with Wozniak in 1976, died on October 5, 2011 after a long battle with cancer. West said in a recent New York Times interview that he believes he is the next Steve Jobs.

“I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z … I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers," West told The New York Times in an interview last month.

During the visit, Kanye shared some of those business ideas with Wozniak. "It was an excellent conversation for about two hours and he finally got into his grandiose business ideas," Wozniak said. "I have some comments to give him. I have been thinking about it since the meeting."

Wozniak wouldn't comment on West's plans, but said that he believes that West is driven and that when you "visualize yourself in a certain way" that anything can happen. When asked what the baby looked like Wozniak said he didn't see much of the newborn, and that he sat with Kanye in a different room while Kim and her mother and sisters were with the baby in another room.

However, Wozniak was forthcoming about one thing -- how much Kim loves Kanye.

"She wanted to do something nice, outstanding and unusual for her man. In this day and age you really have to put a thinking cap on," Wozniak said. "I believe in signs of true love. I wanted to be a part of this."
