Translation: 
Sukadeva Gosvami said: Having heard His father’s words, the Supreme Lord, leader of the Satvatas, replied in a gentle voice as He bowed His head in humility and smiled.

Purport: 
Srila Jiva Gosvami describes what Lord Krsna thought after hearing His father glorify Him: “Vasudeva has been honored with the eternal role of My father, something even demigods like Brahma cannot aspire for. Therefore he shouldn’t be absorbed in thinking of My godly aspects. Moreover, his reverence greatly embarrasses Me. It was to avoid this very situation that, after killing Kamsa, I made a special effort to reinforce their pure parental love for Me and Balarama. But now, unfortunately, the statements of these sages threaten to revive some of Vasudeva’s and Devaki’s previous awareness of My majesty.”
