No one is more famous right now than Kylie Jenner. The once spoiled teenager who disappeared for most of 2017 is now a mommy to the world's most famous baby, so no chance that the Stormi connection hasn't been made by now. Travis Scott is this little munchkin's daddy (and the love he has for this kid has no limits).
In 2018, Stormi joined the Kardashian-Jenner family "triplets," a.k.a. Stormi, Chicago Kardashian-West, and True Thompson. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West became parents for the third time, Khloe Kardashian got her #FirstTimeMom, and everyone is still talking about it.
Travis Scott is an unusual one. As an artist, this guy is pulling ultra swag, autotuned rap, baggy jeans, and those signature braids. How he's linked to Kanye? Well, Kanye is married to Kim (and Kim is Kylie's half-sister). There's a huge difference between Travis and Kanye though, and it goes beyond the music.
Travis is 26 years old. Kanye West turned 41 in 2018. While one dad dominates headlines with his Astroworld tour, Stormi cuddles, and engagement rumors– he's working on a "fire way" to propose to Kylie– the other makes more headlines for his controversial tweets than his musical talent.
It's time to look at Travis Scott vs. Kanye West, the Daddy files. Here are 20 different ways these two men are raising their famous babies.
20 TRAVIS: IT WASN'T PLANNED – KYLIE PREGNANT AFTER THREE WEEKS OF DATING
Kylie was just 20 when she got pregnant. While the whole world wondered if Kylie might be too young, we've now got over 10 months of proof just how wrong we were. In December 2018, Travis Scott revealed to Rolling Stone that Stormi was conceived after just three weeks of dating.
"We felt like, This is something special. And kids are something we kind of talked about when we were getting busy."
Travis added: "It got to a point where I was like, I need [Kylie] with me to operate. She's that one." At 26 years old, Travis is now thinking of a way to propose– "I gotta propose in a fire way."
19 KANYE: PLANS EVERYTHING, KIM REVEALS KANYE "WANTS SEVEN CHILDREN"
Kanye West is a perfectionist. He perfects his lyrics as much as his Yeezy designs (and no detail is too small). In 2018, KUWTK showed us a rare glimpse into Kim and Kanye's conversations. Kim was opening up to her BFF, Larsa Pippen about Kanye's thoughts on expanding the family.
"He wants like seven. He's, like, stuck on seven," Kim said, adding that she found the idea "crazy." KimYe are older (Kanye is 41 and Kim is 38), but are they wiser? So far, they've proved wonderful parents to North, Saint, and Chicago. Three kids is one matter. Seven? That's...ambitious.
18 TRAVIS: ORIGINALLY WANTED A SON, SAYS STORMI IS "THE ILLEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED"
Travis' Rolling Stone interview taught us a lot. It showed us a guy who isn't afraid to be honest. Ultimately though, it showed us a father who is so in love with his baby girl, he just can't stop gushing about her.
"At first I was like, 'Man, I need a son," Travis said. "When I found out it was a girl, I was like, Huhhh.' But after a while I was like: Yo, this might be the illest thing that ever happened." Bear in mind Rolling Stone mostly interviews artists about their music. Travis just kept going: "When Stormi was born, I was like, Life is fire, bro."
17 KANYE: DOESN'T LIKE THE FAMILY WEARING PINK
If you're wondering why Kanye is giving Kim some minor side-eye here, it might have something to do with the color of North West and Penelope's clothing. The man who reportedly requires his staff to wear all-black has his views on pink.
"Kim had always loved wearing pink before meeting Kanye," an insider told Radar Online. "He doesn't want their daughter dressed in pink, ever."
"Kanye thinks its just cliché for women to wear pink," the report continued, mentioning that Kanye "hates the color." This might be a rumor. Then again, if it's true, Kim is proving #Checkmate. She wore hot pink Adidas recently (and dyed her hair pink in Japan).
16 TRAVIS: WOULDN'T GET VERY FAR WITHOUT PINK
Travis attempting to take Kylie away from her pink? These two probably wouldn't exist as a couple if that were the case. When Kylie gave fans a Snapchat tour of her $1 million purse closet, she specifically pointed towards a pink Hermès bag as her favorite. (And yes, Stormi already has one picked out for her).
Kylie wore pink satin to her 21st birthday party. Her entire baby shower was pinks and mauves. In December 2018, Kylie and Stormi wore matching pink beanies for their Instagram-shared flight. Travis has, however, admitted that Kylie takes "hours" to get ready. He didn't grumble, though.
15 TRAVIS: "EVEN ON TOUR, STORMI PULLS UP" – SHE HAS A PRIVATE ROOM IN EVERY VENUE
You'll be amazed how much a single Snapchat can show if you really pay attention. In 2018, Kylie carried Stormi in her arms during one of Travis' concerts. She revealed that Stormi has her own private room in every venue (complete with personalized signs, fake pepper toys, pink walkers, and screens to watch daddy).
"We don't let her out because of how loud it is back there, so she usually stays backstage and watches."
Kylie lovingly carried Stormi to her private room in the video, where the Stormi sign has thunder and lighting symbols. There's even a video of Stormi dancing along and laughing to Travis' performance.
14 KANYE: YOU GET YOUR PHONE AFTER BREAKFAST (DON'T USE IT DURING MEALS)
You don't even need to be a parent to know that screen time is an issue. Most adults are hooked. For kids though, the question of when to hand out the phones and iPads is a real debate for moms. In 2018, Kim Kardashian spoke at Beautycon, where she shared her family's ways.
"I think, especially for kids in their minds– and they're so fragile and so young– that there has to be rules of maybe not sleeping with the phone right next to you," Kim said. Kim added that she and Kanye keep phones in the kitchen "so that when they wake up, they have breakfast with the family and then they get their phone."
13 TRAVIS: "CAN YOU SAY KYLIE.. .COSMETICS?" REPLY: "DADA" AND A GIGGLE
From someone who's watched it, this video of Stormi has to be the most adorable thing ever. Stormi was approaching 10 months when Kylie shared a video captioned: "Trying to teach her some new words." Stormi was on her playmat holding a Lip Kit.
"Kylie...Cosmetics. Kylie...Cosmetics," Kylie is heard saying. Stormi looks a little confused, but she seems to be a genuinely happy child. After hearing her mommy say the beauty brand's name, Stormi starts babbling back. In the end though, Stormi falls back on the one word she knows: "Dada," before giggling. It made Kylie melt (and us too).
12 KANYE: NAMES MUST BE "SHORT AND EASY TO SPELL"
We're always fascinated by celebrity baby names. Cardi B named her baby girl Kulture Kiari. The "crazy baby name" trend goes way back, though. Gwyneth Paltrow called her daughter Apple Martin nearly 15 years ago. The Kardashians? They definitely choose interesting names. KimYe's kids are North, Saint, and West.
"Short, easy to spell, one syllable, that kind of vibe," Khloe said on The Ellen Show when talking about how the family chooses names.
While Chicago is more than one syllable, it's still relatively "easy." The Kardashian kids also don't seem to have middle names. That includes True Thomspon and Stormi– Webster is Travis' real last name.
11 TRAVIS: STORMI'S NAME GOT CHANGED AT THE LAST MINUTE
With that hidden pregnancy, nobody had a chance to wonder what Kylie would call her baby. In February 2018, Stormi Webster was introduced to the world. There was a last-minute change, though, Cosmopolitan reports. Kylie said:
"I had one other name in mind, but Stormi always felt like her name from when she was in the womb. It's almost like she chose her name."
"I was just looking at nature names, like weather and earth-inspired. Storm was on there– just Storm. And then I was like, I kinda want 'ie', so then I did Stormie," Kylie concluded. It just fits, right?
10 TRAVIS: HER OWN "STORMI SATURDAYS, WE DON'T LET ANYTHING COME OVER STORMI TIME"
Celebrities travel– all the time. Those private jets you see? They might be luxurious, but they're showing one thing. That these people are always jetting from A to B. Travis is currently on his Astroworld tour. He revealed in his Rolling Stone interview that nothing, no matter what, comes before family time.
"We don't let nothing come over Stormi time. Stormi Saturday," Travis said. "We don't [mess] around with those. Even with me on tour, Stormi pulls up. She'll travel." The rapper then revealed that Stormi even has favorite tracks from Astroworld– "Stargazing" and the "Baby Shark" song. For Halloween, the family hit up the pumpkin patch. #FamilyFirst
9 TRAVIS: OPENED UP ABOUT THE DELIVERY ROOM, CUT THE CORD
"Sicko Mode" might be the tracks, but there's a really emotional and grounded guy under the chains and braids. Travis might be a rap icon, but he's opened up (and fully). Speaking on The Ellen Show after Stormi's birth, Travis revealed that he was in the delivery room.
"Going into it I was like, nervous and scared. But when you have your baby in your arms, it's just, like, uncontrollable," Travis said about his love for Stormi.
While Travis admitted to being "freaked out" by the placenta, he did cut the umbilical cord. He called Kris Jenner (who delivered the baby herself) "the best."
8 KANYE: CUTS CLOTHS, DOESN'T OPEN UP MUCH
On the whole, Kanye West finds himself criticized. Perhaps it's best to listen to the person who knows Kanye best– his wife. "Such a good dad to our babies" is how Kim described Kanye in 2018. There's no denying though, that Kanye is a private man (@privatekanye is his social media handle).
Kanye does, indeed, cut cloth. As the founder of the Yeezy empire, Kanye has done more than just break records. His fashion is distinctly different from most other designs. Those hoodies you see Ariana Grande in? They're almost all Yeezy. Kanye isn't the "wear your heart on your sleeve" type, but he's got a big one.
7 TRAVIS: PRIVATE JETS FOR STORMI, "MORE STAMPS ON HER PASSPORT" THAN MOST PEOPLE
This is where the two dads merge. Both Travis Scott and Kanye West's kids live in the kinds of luxury where a private jet is a given. Kim has posted family snaps of all three kids on a jet (and this pic shows Stormi enjoying exploring one). Speaking about Stormi's travels, Travis told Rolling Stone:
"She got more stamps on her passport than a lot of [people]." Kylie doesn't always reveal where she's traveling. We do know that the Kardashians love Mexican getaways. In 2018, Khloe took True to Bali. Stormi is too young to know how well-traveled she is, but she'll have pics like these for when she's older.
6 TRAVIS: NO TV FOR STORMI, MEDICAL MASKS (AND FRESH AIR TOOK A WHILE)
While most of us picture Kanye being stricter than Travis, it was Travis' Rolling Stone interview that taught us something we didn't know. Namely, that TV time is a super strict deal for Stormi.
"Today kids are on iPads. There's so much technology. They don't play outside anymore. That's why, with Stormi– no TV. That TV [stuff] is out."
That said, The Daily Mail reported Kylie keeping Stormi indoors for her first few months. At the age of 10 months, Stormi got her first visit to the park, which fans learned via Kylie's social media. People also reported Kylie insisting on medical masks near Stormi.
5 KANYE: YOUR WARDROBE WILL BE YEEZY
And that's our Northie– looking straight down the lens at New York Fashion Week. That's the editor of Vogue, Anna Wintour next to her. Much like Kim's Yeezy wardrobe, North, Saint, and Chicago mostly wear mini Yeezy. The ultra pared-down, deconstructed athleisurewear is Kanye's creation. It only makes sense for the family to wear the brand.
"I love working with Kanye in that way because he will listen to me on things that are important to me, and I'll trust him on colors and fabrics," Kim told People about working on Yeezy with Kanye. The kids? They might be stylish, but it doesn't look like they get much choice.
4 TRAVIS: NIKE AIR JORDANS, "OG 3'S, I SEE U MAMA"
We are still getting over how much swag Stormi has. Well, she's got the most stylish mom around (and her dad is right up there with them). Travis Scott is now the face of the designer French fashion label, Saint Laurent. Stormi might have customized items, but there's plenty of chill wear.
"We about to be walking. OG 3's I see u mama" was Travis' caption to a post celebrating Stormi reaching 8 months old. She wore cute leather pants and a whole lot of Nike. Travis does have a deal with Nike, but we've got a feeling these parents just couldn't resist the baby footwear.
3 KANYE: A UNIQUE WAY TO BOND
Everyone sleeps. Kanye did here (and you will later tonight). "I love sleep. It's my favorite," Kanye has said. Showing us just that, with a likewise sleeping North in the background, was this epic pic. In 2016, Kim posted this snap to social media. People reports that the family was shopping with Chrissy and John Teigen.
"Kanye & North were a little too quiet. We found them passed out in the middle of the store #TheRealLifeOfPablo," Kim captioned the pic. Kanye might have been asleep here, but his bond with North is immense. "After having her, I'd have a million," he has said.
2 TRAVIS ON FATHERHOOD: "I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD LOVE SOMETHING THIS HARD"
If he weren't so talented with words, we'd almost wonder if Travis Scott might just run out of them for gushing over Stormi. This guy doesn't shower his daughter with artificial vibes, though. It's 100% from the heart. In 2018, Travis appeared on The Ellen Show.
"It's like this whole, like, warp that takes over your whole body. I never thought I could, like, love something so hard, you know?"
"Life is fire, bro," Travis said about the arrival of Stormi. The pictures of these two? They just speak for themselves. Travis couldn't love his baby girl more.
1 KANYE ON FATHERHOOD: "I'M HAPPY ABOUT EVERY MISTAKE I'VE EVER MADE"
No, Kanye isn't the world's biggest smiler. "What do you do when no-one is looking?" Ellen DeGeneres asked Kanye in 2018. "Smile," he replied. This man's love for his family runs deep, although his words can often seem a little strange.
"When I look in North's eyes, I'm happy about every mistake I ever made," Kanye told Paper. "I'm happy that I fought to bring some type of reality to this world we choose to stay in right now." The love might be less visible with Kanye, but it's there.
