Since the show 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' premiered a decade ago, the Kardashian family have turned themselves into not only a household name but a full-fledged, commercialized brand.
The family tradition, or rather the family legacy, is being carried by the older Kardashians as well as the Jenner sisters. And now, the way is being paved for the new generation of Kardashian kids. To carry their legacy successfully into the future, they are being groomed by the best in the lifestyle business - the Kardashian seniors themselves.
Now that there seem to be more children in the family than the adults, plenty of rules are already in place for priming the next generation for their future fame.
Stormi Webster, the daughter of Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott, has become the most talked-about baby in just a matter of few months. Every update regarding Stormi is awaited with unending fascination and anticipation by the world. Being born in and growing up, in such a famous family obviously has its advantages, but also comes with a baggage of rules.
Let’s take a look at a few of such rules that Stormi Webster is already expected to follow, simply by the virtue of being born in the Kardashian family:
15 Be Picture-Ready At All Times
If there is one rule that must be followed by everyone who is remotely associated to the Kardashian clan, it is to be flawlessly picture-ready at all times. The fact that photographers and paparazzi follow them round the clock puts a lot of pressure to not just be presentable, but gorgeous, on the entire family.
Stormi will quickly have to learn how to have her game-face on at all times, not lose her cool in the public, live a life that is always under scrutiny and do all of this while looking near-perfect.
According to E News, Kylie Jenner and baby Stormi just became the most-liked Instagram photo ever. They reported that Kris Jenner took to Instagram in a now-deleted post to congratulate her youngest daughter on breaking the record.
"Wow Kylie!! How incredible, this is the most-liked picture in the history of Instagram!!" the Kardashian matriarch wrote. "Thank you everyone for the outpouring of love for our precious Stormi! #blessed #stormi #proudmama #love."
While her genes will obviously come to her aid, Stormi will have to be very conscious of the image that her family sustains and will have to quickly learn how to find her spot in the mix. All in all, expect trend-setting fashion choices, pictures that break the internet and some breathtakingly beautiful posts from Stormi.
14 Bribes For Behaving At Photoshoots
According to the dailymail.co.uk, in a Snapchat back in May, Kim shared she had had to bribe North to model her and husband Kanye West's pricey designs in public.
"She told her fans she'd had to give North a lollipop before she'd pose for the camera wearing the outfits. Kim and Kanye have naturally turned to their daughter and also their young son Saint, one, to model the clothes they hope parents will fork out big bucks for. The couple launched The Kids Supply brand online in early May and Kim has been busy promoting it on her social media accounts."
With any and every picture that Kylie is sharing with the world garnering millions of likes and comments, it is only a matter of time until Stormi has her first professional shoot as well. But the thing is, babies can be unpredictable and the one surest way in which they might probably behave - as if they are bribed with something that they like.
Kylie might have to be more creative than Kim and come up with more inventive bribes for Stormi. Rest assured, once Stormi realizes she has the upper hand, there is no telling what her demands will be. If there is one thing we can be sure of, it's that, Stormi Webster's photoshoots are going to be stunning, after all she is a Kardashian!
13 Skip School When Shoots For KUWTK Coincide
If there is one thing that is written in stone, it is the fact that Stormi will be a part of the hit reality show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’. However, the entertainment industry can be unforgiving, and celebrities often have to drop their education in order to focus exclusively on their career.
According to Radar Online, formal education is trumped by shooting schedules and photo-shoots in the Kardashian family because learning how to sustain fame is the only training they need. Who needs algebra and literature when one has the opportunity to be a part of a show that reaches millions?
Stormi can soon be expected to feature increasingly on the show that has managed to hold steady ratings over multiple seasons. The show made the Kardashian family into a household name and everything else must, thus, be second priority.
According to Wikipedia, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians (often abbreviated KUWTK) is an American reality television series that airs on the E! cable network. The show focuses on the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian–Jenner blended family. Despite the negative reviews, Keeping Up with the Kardashians has attracted high viewership ratings, becoming one of the network's most successful shows and winning several audience awards."
12 Rule Instagram And Snapchat
Get this, as of now, five of the top ten most liked Instagram posts are related to Stormi’s pregnancy or her birth. The top three pictures on the list i.e. of the name announcement, Kylie’s selfies with Stormi and Stormi’s first picture have more than 45 million likes together. That is A LOT of likes and attention that Stormi has garnered even before learning how to say a single word!
According to the medium.com, "Creating trends, breaking the internet and being named the Queen of Snapchat, Kylie has dominated the social media world. Whether that be through brand deals, her lip phenomenon, the launch of her makeup brand, Kylie Cosmetics, or the recent baby reveal, the public cannot get enough of her".
Kylie is no stranger to breaking the internet and alongside her sisters, Kendall, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe, she has a very loyal following on Instagram as well as Snapchat. Once she is old enough to manage her own handles, one can expect her to cultivate her own sense of style and unique voice on these platforms.
The Kardashian family extensively connects with their fans using the social media, and Stormi will be no exception.
At least that's what's expected from her! High expectations indeed fo a kid who just opened her eyes to this brand new world.
11 Have A Bodyguard Of Her Own
Another rule that is followed stringently by every member of the Kardashian family is having their own personal bodyguards. A source close to the family has been quoted saying in Page Six that the focus on security really ramped up post the much-talked-about robbery that took place when Kim was in Paris. The clan does not share security guards anymore, and also pays top buck for it, says E! News.
According to glamourmagazine.co.uk, "Just days before the robbery, Kim praised Pascal for stopping Vitalli Sediuk from assaulting her. The notorious prankster tried to kiss Kim's famous bottom in Paris but Pascal tackled him out of the way. She posted on Twitter: "My security @PascalDuvier is a G". But tragically, he wasn't there to save her when she was tied up and had $10m of jewelry and two mobile phones stolen as he was at that time with Kim's sisters, Kourtney and Kendall Jenner, at the Arc nightclub.
Living in the spotlight can also attract the wrong kind of attention, and to ensure their children’s safety, the family leaves no stone unturned. Stormi must get used to a bodyguard shadowing her every second of her life. Playdates, birthdays, school, picnics and photo-shoots – one can expect round-the-clock and tight security for little Stormi, which is only likely to be ramped up as she grows older.
10 Share Birthday Parties
The Kardashians is a big family with more kids than adults. More kids naturally means that extravagant birthday parties must be frequently organized. However, the clan has come up with an innovative solution to solve the hassle of topping the last party each time around: celebrate birthdays in unison. Not sure how the kids actually feel about this, But North and Penelope, daughters of Kim and Kourtney respectively, have already shared a Moana themed birthday party.
The E News reported that "the birthday girls and their guests wore colorful skirts and leis, as seen in photos and videos Kourtney, sister Kourtney Kardashian and family friends Larsa Pippen and Daphne Joy posted on Snapchat and Instagram. There were even party actors dressed like Moana's Moana and Maui."
As have Saint and Reign, sons of Kim and Kourtney, respectively, who have shared a Monsters Inc. themed party. This way, the kids get to celebrate their birthdays with their loved ones and the parents do not have to keep coming up with new and ingenious party themes. One can expect Stormi to have a joint celebration with Chicago (Kim’s daughter) and True (Khloe’s daughter). Any ideas for what should be the theme for this mega party?
9 Co-Sleep With Her Mama
With exhausting shooting schedules and frantic pace of the day, the members of the Kardashian family need their rest. ‘Co-sleeping’, or sleeping with the parent in the same room or bed, is a widely used practice in the house to ensure that everyone gets a good night’s sleep.
Kourtney once explained to the People that by practicing co-sleeping, she and her kids got more sleep and were better rested, as it was easier to pacify the children if they woke up in the middle of the night.
According to the dailymail.co.uk, Kourtney Kardashian gave parenting advice about co-sleeping with children on her website kourtneykardashian.com. The 38-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashian star wrote: 'Everyone has a different strategy for getting their kids to sleep through the night. Here's how co-sleeping has worked in our house: 'Getting the kids to sleep through the night in my home was different for each individual child. When I had Mason, co-sleeping just kind of happened naturally. 'When I had Penelope, I read The Attachment Parenting Book by Dr. Sears - and this style of co-sleeping really worked for us."
Kylie really looks up to her sisters and one shouldn’t be surprised if she follows in Kourtney’s footsteps. Plus, Kylie is just 20 years old and is growing busier by the day; co-sleeping might just be the solution she is looking for to get a good night’s rest and also bond with Stormi.
8 Grow Up In A Gated Community
Stormi must get accustomed to spending her childhood in a closed community. They reside in the famous Hidden Hills, Los Angeles, where the security is said to be extremely strict.
According theguardian.com, Hidden Hills might only be 20 miles from LA, and still in the same county, it is actually a world apart. A unique and bizarre gated community far from the city, it contains around 600 houses on just under two square miles of land, with a massive fence around it, and three checkpoints. Nobody normal can get a look-in, which is why the Kardashians have chosen to move in."
As a matter of fact, Kylie herself had some trouble getting past the security checks one time. While it may seem bizarre to have such high levels of security, but the kids and children are likely to spend the bigger part of the day at home with their parents busy working, hence, justifying the stringent measures.
The neighborhood is famous for being the address of several other A-list celebrities like Marc Anthony, Miley Cyrus, Drake, Jamie Foxx and Britney Spears. With so many of the rich and famous living so close to each other, it is no wonder that the security in the community is unbeatable.
7 Be Impeccably Fashionable
This one’s a no-brainer. Almost every member of the Kardashian family has made a name for being fashionable and stylish. The fashion bug has reportedly not even missed the little ones, as Penelope (Kourtney’s daughter) was treated to waist-length hair extensions when she was just 3-years old, and North (Kim’s daughter) was seen sporting them as well.
Being picture-ready at all times also means being impeccably fashionable at all times. Stormi must quickly get used to the practice, and have her beauty regime set. One can also expect her to have her very own personal stylists, fashion advisors, designers and make-up crew at a very young age.
According to the SUN,
"KYLIE Jenner showed it’s only the best for her newborn Stormi as she took her for a walk in a designer pram. The 20-year-old took a leaf out of Burberry fan Danniella Westbrook’s book and decided to match her fancy Fendi pram with a sexy mini dress in the same print. Other Fendi print buggies, which are available to buy, can cost up to £1,000."
The dailymail.co.uk reported that "Kylie and Stormi's Fendi pieces boasted all over logo print which is on trend right now - it's all about showing off your labels! And while you cannot get Kylie's look, you can shop the Fendi current like by heading through to Flannels."
Wow, at just months old, look just fashionable Stormi Webster is. Mummy Kylie already has her marketing the brands. Wonder how much Fendi sales shot up after that. Thankfully, Stormi has a lot of people in her family to take inspiration from. Her aunts are very likely to give her fashion advice and opinion, and trade her insider secrets, trips and tricks to look fabulous at all times.
6 Never Use The ‘F’ Word
In an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kourtney barred her mother Kris from using the word ‘fat’ in from of her daughter. All the Kardashian sisters are extremely focused on being fit and healthy, and reportedly have formidable workout routines.
According to Yahoo News, "When Jenner asked her daughter, “Do I look fat?” in a scene early on in the episode, Kardashian, who was in the midst of eating a salad, provided a single answer: “Don’t use that word in front of my daughter, please.”
“Okay,” Jenner replied, with slightly mocking laughter. “My son, he uses that word in front of my daughter all day,” Kardashian continued. “It’s [what] he calls the paparazzi.” The brief exchange stopped there, but for anyone sensitive to body image issues and young girls, it was one that jumped out."
Alongside allowing their children limited amounts of sugar, as explained by Kourtney on her website, the family also tried to ensure that no extra cellulite is build up. This is one rule that Stormi will have to follow, no matter if she likes it or not. She will have to be extra cautious in what she is consuming, how much she is exercising and in maintaining her appearance. The word ‘fat’ must be non-existent in her dictionary, and she must assume that there is only one way to exist: fit and beautiful.
5 Follow Special Meal Plans
A few months back Kylie posted on Instagram that she will be trying a vegan diet, following in Kourtney’s footsteps. Kourtney herself provides a gluten-free and dairy-free diet to her children. Kim also prefers to feed her kids snacks made from natural ingredients.
According to the PEOPLE, "Kylie Jenner is shaking up her diet. The reality star announced on Snapchat on Tuesday that she is “trying this whole vegan thing” and documented her first few homemade meals for the plant-based way of life. First up on her menu were tacos. Instead of using meat, Jenner appeared to fill her blue corn crispy tortilla shells with lettuce, salsa and vegan cheddar cheese. Sticking to a Mexican food theme, the beauty mogul soon followed up with vegan, raw, soy-free, dairy-free, grain-free nachos. “Mmm,” she captioned the food photo."
The entire family is said to be very aware when it comes to knowing what they are consuming. Stormi will have a lot of sources of information, and an unshakable support system while following special diets. With so many dietary options, Stormi might be a little confused; but, one can expect her to follow a special customized diet from a very young age.
As a matter of fact, she is also very likely to come up with a unique diet with quirks of her own incorporated in the same. Don’t be surprised if something called a ‘Stormi Diet’ is a rage a few years from now.
4 Only Trust Your Family
According to nydailynews.com, Pam Behan was just 19 when she was hired as a nanny for the Kardashian clan. "The life of luxury revolved around the domineering Kris Jenner, who was grooming her brood for stardom. “Kris wants what she wants, when she wants it, which is usually now!’ ” 41 year old Behan revealed
It is a well-known fact that post the publication of a memoir written by the former nanny, everyone who comes in contact with the kids in the family are made to sign a rigorous non-disclosure agreement which prevents them from sharing information and pictures.
Kylie seems to have liked the idea, and is reportedly making people who see Stormi sign a hefty agreement.
According to OK! Magazine, the fee for breaking the agreement is $10 million, and anyone who does not sign the agreement is not allowed to meet Stormi.
This environment is likely to make it very tough on young Stormi to trust a lot of people easily.
She will have to be extra careful while making friends at school, or anywhere outside the house. While the measure might seem extreme, the Kardashians’ past-record with controversies and scandals is against them, and hence, such strict steps must be taken, even if they come at the cost of Stormi becoming a little untrusting.
3 Regulated Screen-Time
Kourtney is known to have very tough rules for her children when it comes to video games. She has explained on her website that she doesn’t wish for her children to be dependent on technology.
According to etonline.com, Kourtney begins by explaining how "it’s tough to know what's best for our kids when it comes to technology" but says she's found a method that works best for her children. "Now that all my kids are over the age of two, I do allow them limited time to play video games and watch television," she explains. "We have a game room, so I allow 30 minutes of video game time during the week and an hour on the weekends."
Since the majority of work that the Kardashian family does is on the television or the social media, it is easy to lose control and become addicted to the digital world. Kylie might just enforce similar rules on Stormi, and regulate the amount of time that she spends in front of screens.
However, the life we live is increasingly becoming more digital and virtual. It might be tough for Stormi to self-discipline herself, if she is growing up in such a hyper-digital world.
2 Be An Ambassador
Considering how almost everyone in her family is associated with famous names in the cosmetics and fashion industry, Stormi might as well launch an apparel or make-up line for kids in association with high-end luxury labels.
She will have a lot of experienced relatives at her disposal to help her get the most lucrative deal and guide her in the process of cultivating these partnerships and associations. At the end of the day, the Kardashians sell a lifestyle, a dream, and Stormi must grow up to inherit the ‘legacy’ of luxury as well.
While Stormi will almost definitely carve a space of her own, she will have to work hard to create a new brand image for herself. Don’t be too shocked if Stormi dominates the news cycle with her numerous deals even before she turns one.
As proven with the Fendi Pram stroll, Stormi webster can already sell brands.
But not everyone responded well to the Instagram post. The Celebrity Insider reported that a comment that came in reply to the Fendi post: “Do you guys think Stormi is actually in there?Plot twist…… stormy isn’t really in there.. she’s with the nanny..these Fendi outfits look so cheap. Imagine Kylie getting that stroller deal Blac Chyna lost. That damn stroller cost more than my life. The baby probably got on Gucci diapers, Louis Vuitton pacifier, and Fendi wipes made of silk.Ok, I gotta be a critic but wheres the diaper bag !?? No bottle no extra diapers with?!”
1 Follow In Her Family's Footsteps
According to the metro.co.uk, "Kim Kardashian has decided to launch her very own children’s prank TV show, aptly named You Kiddin’ Me. The 37-year-old wife of Kanye West has founded another new series. However, it will only available to view on Facebook Watch. Kim said: ‘I know from firsthand experience that children are wise beyond their years and can come up with the craziest things, so imagine how funny it will be to see them make all the decisions. The series will peek into the family relationships of Hollywood stars as children prank their famous parents."
So last, but not remotely the least, is that Stormi might as well just star in an exclusive reality show really soon. With Stormi’s cousin Dream (Rob’s daughter) almost ready to feature on a reality TV show with her mother Blac Chyna, Stormi might not want to feel left behind.
It wouldn’t be too unbelievable if she launches her own reality show for kids, or even for adults, and becomes an overnight star. However, even if this plan doesn’t work out, she will always have the option of featuring on the already hit show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which, if the ratings suggest, is not going to end anytime in the near future. Both ways, one thing is certain: Stormi Webster became a bonafide reality TV star the moment she was born, and will get her fair share of the attention in the future.
