Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott have been in the headlines recently after it was reported that they were changing their son’s name from Wolfe to Aire. According to documents obtained by TMZ, the former couple has officially filed to make the name change, with both parties signing off on the switch.
The reason given for the name change is that the couple “regret the initial name choice of Wolf Jacques Webster. Now that Petitioners have had the chance to spend time with their baby, they believe the name Aire Webster is a better fit.”
This news comes after a long process that started when the couple first announced in 2022 that they would be changing their son’s name from Wolfe to something else. In January of 2023, they revealed that they had settled on Aire, but it wasn’t until now that they made the change official.
Kylie Jenner initially revealed that they were changing their son’s name from Wolfe because they “just really didn’t feel like it was him.” She later clarified that while they were calling him Aire, his name was still legally Wolfe.
During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden in September 2022, Kylie admitted that they had not yet officially changed his name, but they were waiting to do so. She explained that Travis sometimes liked to change the name and they wanted to be sure they were settled on Aire before making it official.
Now that the couple has filed the necessary paperwork, it seems that Aire is here to stay. While Kylie and Travis have since ended their relationship, they remain committed to co-parenting their son and ensuring that he is happy and healthy.
The name change is not uncommon for celebrities, who often choose unique names for their children. It is a personal decision and one that Kylie and Travis felt was best for their son. It will be interesting to see if they share more about why they chose the name Aire in the future.
In the end, what matters most is that their son is loved and cared for, regardless of his name. We wish Kylie, Travis, and their family all the best as they navigate co-parenting and raising their son.
