Kylie Jenner has finally shared the true reason she named her son Aire, and revealed the meaning behind the name.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star welcomed her second child last February with ex-boyfriend Travis Scott and announced at the time that they had named him Wolf.

The 25-year-old later revealed that she had actually changed his name as she didn’t think Wolf suited him – and it was a long time before any of us knew his new name.

In the latest episode of The Kardashians, Kylie finally revealed all about her son’s name and the drama surrounding it.

Chatting to her best friend Stassie Karanikolaou, the mum of two said: “I just always wanted a name for him that had meaning. And I like [Aire] —it’s a Hebrew name. It means Lion of God.

“Find your name before your hormones start raging and you have the child. It was the hormones that took me out. It was like, I’m too emotional. He’s so special to me. There’s not a name good enough for him.”

She then directly told the camera: “I didn’t realize the postpartum would hit me that hard. I never called him Wolf, ever.

“That night, I cried in the shower and I was like, ‘That’s not his name. What did I just do? Wolf?’ Someone just told me this 24 hours ago and I just named my son Wolf. Like it wasn’t even—it wasn’t even on the list!”

Kylie revealed her son’s real name only a month before his first birthday.

Kylie is also mum to five-year-old Stormi, who she also shares with Travis. The couple split up last year.
