Kylie Jenner revealed how she came up with her daughter’s name Stormi and what it’s like raising her child alongside her sisters.
The 20-year-old reality star and new mom spoke candidly to her sister Kim Kardashian who interviewed her for Evening Standard Magazine. Kylie talked about recently welcoming her 3-month-old daughter, Stormi, with boyfriend Travis Scott in February. Kim got her little sister to open up about parenthood, how she named her daughter, and what it’s like raising the next generation of Kardashian-Jenners together.
Many new mothers complain about how hard it is, but Kylie confessed that it’s been “the opposite,” for her.
“It’s just been so amazing, and so much fun,” she said. “I’m learning so much more about myself and life, and it’s been such a great experience. Of course, there’s hard times and stuff … even in the beginning, just not sleeping, the nights, like, baby blues … and all the ups and downs.”
“And, it was so hard to leave this morning,” she added. “I’m like, ‘I’ll be right back, I’m so sorry, I have to leave!’ and she doesn’t even know what’s going on. I think about her all the time, anywhere I am. I can’t wait till she can come everywhere with me, because right when she’s old enough I’ll bring her everywhere.”
Kylie then explained how she and Travis came up with the name of their baby girl.
“Her dad insisted it was him, but I feel like it was me,” she said of the unusual choice. “And that kind of just stuck with us. And then I didn’t really like just Storm — I didn’t feel like that was her name. So, then it became Stormi. And it just stuck. There were a lot of other names that I might have even liked better, but I feel like Stormi picked her own name, like it was just her name.”
During the candid interview, the beauty mogul shared that her biggest hopes for Stormi are that she grows into a “strong and independent and confident” woman.
Soon Kim and Kylie were talking about their experience raising their children together.
“Recently you have become closer to all the sisters, especially me and Khloé, because we were all expecting at the same time,” Kim noted. “Our daughters are two weeks apart, so that’s really cute, and they’re like best friends.”
“They hang out all the time,” added Kylie.
“It’s crazy how fast they grow, because [Kim’s daughter] Chi is just, like, two weeks older, but you can tell she’s a little bit more advanced. And then, right when Stormi hits two weeks, she’s doing the same things Chi was doing, and they’re like … it’s just crazy to see them grow up together.”
“It was so much fun [being pregnant at the same time as Khloé],” Kylie continued. “We would experience everything together. I was a little ahead of her, so we were both doing it for the first time and I would warn her of things that happened … the amazing things that are going on, and feeling the baby for the first time. We would talk on a daily basis about everything.”
