Kylie Jenner has shared a picture from her notoriously private pregnancy on Instagram, saying; 'I have so many belly photos but this one has always been one of my favorites. baking my little baby storm was such a special time in my life.. i actually became so much stronger and independent throughout the entire experience. women really are amazing.. tag a strong woman in your life 💓 @krisjenner'

The reality star and makeup mogul kept very quiet about her pregnancy, saying she 'needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way i knew how.'

Kylie Jenner's Private Pregnancy

Kylie Jenner revealed the name of her baby girl with American artist Travis Scott in February 2018 and the internet lost its mind. ‘Stormi Webster’ she wrote on her Instagram page - Webster is Travis' surname - with a picture of the baby clutching her thumb.

Before she gave birth there were hundreds of conspiracy theories flying around about whether she was sister Kim Kardashian’s surrogate and whether she was actually pregnant at all.

An emotional Instagram post and 12-minute video revealed the truth: all Jenner wanted was a quiet pregnancy away from the stress of the public eye. Fair enough.

Once it was all out in the open, here’s how people reacted to the name Stormi Webster.

The genius weather pun

But really, between Kim’s children North and Chicago, and Kourtney’s baby boy Reign the Kardashian-Jenner kids seem to follow a weather report theme. What’s next: Windy and Gusty?

The niche Doctor Who reference

Were Kylie and Travis inspired by Doctor Who?

Stormi is the nickname given to a baby who is being looked after by a character called Craig in an episode from 2016. Doctor Who takes over looking after the baby, telling Craig that he’s doing it all wrong, and that the baby likes to be referred to as ‘Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All,’ or for short, Stormi.

The unlikely political reference

We’re not the only ones that picked up on the similarity to the only other Stormy in the news at the moment, Stormy Daniels.

She’s an American adult film actress who was allegedly paid $130,000 in hush money after reportedly hooking up with Trump before his US election victory. Hmm.

The butterfly decoy

People were absolutely convinced that Jenner would call daughter Butterfly as there were butterflies throughout her pregnancy diary video, she wore a butterfly ring as a shoot last year, and both Kylie and Travis have matching butterfly tattoos.

The mariposa myth

People also thought Kylie was going to name her daughter Mariposa. She announced a new lip kit on February 1st – the day she gave birth, and it was called Posie K, and Mariposa is Spanish for butterfly – see above for the whole butterfly conspiracy.

Did someone say Stormzy?!

Could’ve added a 'z' and made the name more iconic.

She’ll be a force to be reckoned with

Whatever the true meaning behind her name, this is definitely not the last we'll be hearing of her.
