And there's also the fact that Kylie and her boyfriend/baby daddy, Travis Scott, got matching butterfly tattoos in June — approximately a month after she got pregnant.

Which leads us nicely to this new theory that fans have come up with, connecting the name Stormi to the reoccurring theme of butterflies.
