Kylie Jenner has finally shared her baby son's name with the world after months of speculation.

Captioned with just his name, the Instagram post (available here) sees Jenner posing for mirror selfies with the adorable baby boy in her arms as he pouts for the camera.

Other pics showed his mouth covered with food in his high chair, giggling with Jenner as she kisses his cheeks on a photoshoot, and posing with a black hat on.

Khloe Kardashian excitedly wrote: "The king!!! Young king!!!!!" while proud grandmother Kris Jenner added: "I love you Aire Webster."

Aire is the younger sibling to four-year-old Stormi Webster, who Jenner also has with Astroworld rapper Travis Scott (real name Jacques Bermon Webster II).

Jenner welcomed her second child on February 2, 2022 – a day after Stormi's birthday – but after initially naming him Wolf announced she'd decided to change it.

Since then, the baby's identity has been shrouded in mystery, with both social-media savvy Jenner and Scott not sharing pics or his new name with eager fans.

Jenner explained on James Corden's The Late Late Show in September 2022 she had initially panicked when naming the baby, as a name was needed for the birth certificate. It wasn't until later she realised her mistake.

"We didn’t really have a name, I just thought it was going to come to us when we saw him and it didn’t," she told the host.

"24 hours before we had to sign the birth certificate, or else they just register him without a name and he doesn’t get a social security number… So I felt the pressure to choose a name, and then Khloe said, the day before we sign, 'What about Wolf?'.

"I like the WW, so we just put Wolf Webster in that moment. Right after I signed the birth certificate, I was like, 'What did I just do?' It’s a part of his story but his name has changed."

In January 2023, it was reported Jenner and Scott had split after a five-year relationship, but neither have officially commented or confirmed the break-up.
