Meet baby Stormi Webster! That’s right, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s new little one’s surname isn’t Jenner or Scott, she’s taken her dad’s given last name (Scott’s real name is Jacques Webster).
After months of public speculation—and crazy conspiracy theories (like the one where she was Kim’s surrogate)—Jenner finally put all rumours to rest on Sunday, February 4 with an Instagram announcement about the birth of her baby.
Jenner, who gave birth to “a healthy baby girl” on Feb. 1, apologized for her silence over the past several months, saying “my pregnancy was [a journey] I chose not to do in front of the world.” Fair enough.
The makeup mogul went on to gush that she is maj in love with her new little bundle, and that the pregnancy itself was a transformative experience that she’s actually going to miss.
Shortly after the post, Jenner uploaded an 11-minute tribute video to YouTube, entitled “To Our Daughter.” While it doesn’t reveal a name or any other details, it gives us a glimpse into the past nine months of Ky’s life, from finding out she was pregnant right up until giving birth. We even get to see some shots of the elusive bump and a few sweet sonogram vids.
At the very end of the video, we briefly see footage of the newborn’s arm and learn that she was born at 4:43, weighing eight pound and nine ounces. Once the long-overdue news was finally out, Jenner’s friends and fam took the opportunity to share some of their candid pics from the past nine months.
The one thing that was missing from the big reveal was the new babe’s name, and while we finally learned it when the youngest Jenner posted this Instagram on February 6, fan theories up until then about what the babe’s moniker *might* be were wild. In the video, Stormi’s mum is wearing a butterfly necklace and butterfly stickers are seen on a pink wall that appears to be a baby nursery. Add that to the fact that new dad Travis Scott released his song “The Butterfly Effect” approximately eight months ago, the couple later got matching butterfly tattoos and it started to sound like these fans are really onto something.
So we all agree that Kylie named her baby something butterfly-adjacent? Like middle name Mariposa or something?!

I’m calling it now, Kylie is naming her baby Monarch, like the butterfly. Or some type of butterfly

my question is: did Kylie call the baby Caterpillar while she was pregnant and now she is Butterfly since she is on earth https://t.co/voZv95AlEN

I didn’t sob my eyeballs out at that video for Kylie to go and name her baby Butterfly.

Oh well, the guessing game was fun while it lasted. Welcome to the world, little Stormi!
