After much speculation, the name of Kylie Jenner‘s newborn has been revealed!
Much like Kim Kardashian‘s North, Saint, and Chicago West and Rob Kardashian‘s Dream Kardashian, the baby girl’s moniker is unique as ever. Though some fans presumed that the 20-year-old reality star and Travis Scott named their first child Butterfly, a creature of significant meaning to the couple, it seems the new parents have taken a different approach.
Read on to see what they actually named her!
What’s in a Name
Fans didn’t have to wait long to find out the name of Kylie Jenner‘s new baby girl. Just days after she gave birth to her first child, and subsequently confirmed her hush-hush pregnancy after more than nine months of silence, the 20-year-old reality star took to Instagram to reveal her daughter’s unique moniker.
Sharing a never-before-seen shot of the newborn, the Kylie Cosmetics founder announced that she had named her little one Stormi. Kylie captioned the sweet mother-and-daughter — which showed the tiny tot clutching the new mom’s perfectly pink manicure — with the name and an angel emoji.
As previously reported, many fans speculated the makeup mogul had named her bundle of joy “Butterfly”, a symbol of significant meaning to the starlet and boyfriend Travis Scott, 25, since they previously got matching tattoos of the winged creature.
The name Posie was also a frontrunner for loyal followers as a special version of Kylie’s lip kit of the same name was released on the baby’s birthday.
However, according to the first-time mom herself, she had already picked out the name way before the arrival of her child. Even before news of her pregnancy got out, the Life of Kylie star revealed on her app that she already had a list of baby names chosen for her brood.
“I keep a list in my phone of names I like for my future kids,” she said in 2016. “But they’re my secrets for now!”
Earlier this week, Kylie confirmed she gave birth and apologized to fans for keeping them in the dark about the baby news.
“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” she wrote on Instagram. “I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world.”
Kylie continued, “I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”
“Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life changing experience I’ve had in my entire life and I’m actually going to miss it,” she added. “I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could. My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn’t wait to share this blessing. I’ve never felt love and happiness like this I could burst! Thank you for understanding.”
