Rodman, who calls Kim a friend and just returned from his second visit to Pyongyang, told the Guardian newspaper that he had spent a “relaxing time by the sea” with the leader's family,” during his latest five-day trip.
“I held their baby Ju Ae and spoke with (Kim's wife) as well. He's a good dad and has a beautiful family,” Rodman said.
While more of a public personality than his introverted father Kim Jong Il ever was, little is known about Kim's personal life. Even his age is a matter of dispute, with reports ranging from 29 to 31.
There have been unconfirmed reports that Kim and his wife already had one child.
Rodman told the Guardian that he and Kim had discussed plans to play “a historic friendship basketball game” between North Korea and the United States.
