Kylie Opens Up About Motherhood And How Stormi Got Her Name
Kylie Jenner surprised the world when she announced that she’d given birth to a little girl. Well, maybe stunned is too strong a word. The world was 99.8% sure she was pregnant, but she didn’t confirm it for her entire pregnancy. Instead, she chose to enjoy her pregnancy in relative peace and solitude, and just let us know when it was all done. It was a bold move for a Kardashian/Jenner, but I thought it was perfect. Then she announced the name and … well. Let’s just say it’s probably a good idea to run a potential name through the ol’ Google machine before settling. Little Stormi was born smack dab in the middle of the Stormy/Trump drama, so it was weird. Now she’s opening up about how Stormi got her name, and how she’s adjusting to motherhood in a new interview with sis Kim Kardashian.
Kylie Jenner sat down and answered some questions asked by none other than her sister, Kim Kardashian.
Kim cut right to the chase, and asked Kylie how she and Travis came up with Stormi’s name. Kylie says, “I really don’t know how we thought of Storm. Her dad insisted it was him, but I feel like it was me. 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. I feel like there were a lot of other names that I might have even liked better to be honest, but I feel like Stormi picked her own name, like it was just her name.”
On those early stages of motherhood, Kylie had this to say: “I feel like it’s just been so amazing, and so much fun. I’m learning so much more about myself and life, and it’s been such a great experience.”
She continued, “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 also even when I’m here it was so hard to leave this morning. 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.” Just a heads up Kylie, that feeling comes and goes, LOL.
It sounds like Kylie Jenner is adjusting well to motherhood! And that Stormi sure is a doll baby. Well done on picking that name, kiddo.
