When Kylie Jenner Decided To Name Her Daughter Stormi

sIf there's one think that the Kardashian/Jenner family is good at, it's constantly keeping the attention of the public. And while they've done this with 14 season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and its countless spinoffs, lately it's all about the various babies that are on the way. We're currently in the midst of the Kardashian Baby Boom, with three bundles of joy arriving in the span of just a few months. Kim Kardashian started the trend by having a third child through the use of a surrogate, while Khloe announced weeks ago that she's expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson. But 20 year old Kylie Jenner broke the internet on Super Bowl Sunday, revealing that she'd had a daughter during her time spent hiding from the public.

And after a few more days of waiting, Kylie Jenner announced that her daughter is named Stormi. Much like Kim's various baby names, it's one that is both monosyllabic and not a typical name. It turns out that Kylie and her boyfriend Travis Scott actually came up with the name before Stormi was born. This report comes to us from TMZ, and is allegedly confirmed by a blanket Kylie was gifted by one of her sisters. She got the blanket embroidered with Stormi's name in January, while she gave birth on February 1st.

It should come to no surprise that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott named Stormi in advance. It's not a name that would just come naturally when meeting the baby. And Kylie has overall shown that she was going to do her pregnancy her own way. She never even announced that she was expecting, instead fading out of the public eye over the course of a few months. Her social media accounts became more vague and less Kyle-centric, as she took the time to enjoy her privacy and the time leading up to becoming a mother.

But the three Kardashian/Jenner pregnancies have also been marketed with brilliance by the family's team. Every week brings a new detail about one of the three babies, with fans clamoring for more information. Just after Khloe finally announced her long rumored pregnancy, Kim's surrogate gave birth to baby Chicago. Then came the wait for Chicago's name. Rinse and repeat this process with Kylie and Stormi, and it's once again proven how the Kardashian family has managed to entertain after all these years. And with Khloe's baby still months away from arrival, the Kardashian Baby Boom isn't quite finished.

Say what you want about Kylie Jenner's name choice for Stormi, we'd like to extend our congratulations to she and Travis Scott. The entire Kardashian/Jenner family seems over the moon about the new babies, with one more on the way.
