    New mum Kylie Jenner revealed her daughter’s full name on Instagram last night when she edited her original photo caption to include her child’s last name.

    While many speculated whether Stormi would take her mother or father’s surname, fans later learned that the newborn did, in fact, acquire Travis Scott‘s.

    But not his stage name – the rapper, 25, was born Jacques Webster. Introducing Stormi Webster!

    Earlier that same day, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 20, shared the first mother-daughter photo of her holding her child’s finger with the simple caption, ‘Stormi’ and an angel emoji.

    Jenner welcomed her first child with Scott on the 1st February. The little girl weighed in at 8 lbs. 9 oz. and arrived at 4:43 pm local time.

    Then three days after, on Sunday, the Kylie Cosmetics mogul announced her baby’s arrival on Instagram and with a video, titled ‘To Our Daughter’, shared on YouTube.

    The video has already racked up over 41 million views.

    News of Jenner and Scott’s baby girl was first confirmed by PEOPLE in September. The new parents have been dating since April 2017.

    Little Stormi’s arrival isn’t that far behind one of her cousin’s – Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child, Chicago, just a few weeks ago via surrogate.

    While the meaning of Stormi’s name has yet to be revealed, her famous father does have a history of honoring his family when it comes to choosing names.

    In a 2015 interview with Complex, the Butterfly Effect hit-maker shared that the origin story of the ‘Travis Scott’ moniker was a tribute to his beloved uncle.

    ‘My favorite uncle’s name is Travis. [He’s] just smart and cool. The Scott comes from him, too, that was his nickname,’ he said.

    ‘I was, like, man, if I wanted to be a rapper I wanted to be [him]. He has this ill-ass crib, is fresh as hell, has all this land. [He] is smooth. Travis is smooth. I’ve always been smooth,’ he added.
