Kim Kardashian isn’t the only one who got outvoted in the baby name department. Kylie Jenner has opened up about why she named her daughter Stormi, and it sounds like the moniker wasn’t necessarily her first choice.

“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,” Jenner, 20, tells Kim, who interviewed her for ES Magazine. “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.”

Kim asked her sister about how she was coping with the early challenges of motherhood, and Kylie made it pretty clear: What challenges?!

“It’s actually been the opposite for me. 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 explained. “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. … I think about her all the time, anywhere I am. I would rather be with her or wish she can come everywhere.”

The 20-year-old reality star loves motherhood so much she even likes changing diapers.

“I actually enjoy changing diapers. It’s really satisfying,” she says. “To make her clean again. And I don’t know, the whole thing is really … it’s like such an amazing experience.”

Jenner welcomed Stormi Webster in February with boyfriend Travis Scott, and the makeup mogul and rapper are going strong. On Tuesday, she shared a rare (yes, rare) PDA photo with her beau on Instagram.

If you can believe it, Jenner tends to keep pictures of her baby daddy off social media, opting for Kylie Cosmetics pics and selfies instead. Luckily, we get the occasional snap of their three-month-old daughter too.

Jenner and Scott recently celebrated the rapper’s 26th birthday with the whole KarJenner crew. The reality star went big, renting out an entire Six Flags park for the special occasion over the weekend. “Rented out Six Flags for baby’s birthday,” she shared on her Instagram Stories. “They’ve never been.”

According to People, “Kylie and Travis are doing well.”

“They are a great family,” a source says. “Kylie is very in love with Travis. He is an amazing dad and loves spending time with their daughter. He has very much stepped up.”

Adds the source, “Kylie’s family is very happy with him. He is young, but acts much more mature. After all the Tristan drama, they are especially happy that they don’t have [similar problems] about Kylie. She loves being a mom and she is very happy with Travis.”
