Last week, Kylie Jenner took Stormi Webster (and her new $2,232 Fendi stroller) to Disney World to hang with Cinderella. Upon return to their own castle in Los Angeles, she enjoyed a butterfly-themed bash in her honor (complete with oversized topiary and custom butterfly chairs) to mark the launch of the Stormi x Kylie Cosmetics limited-edition collection.
And we haven’t even seen what the beauty mogul has up her designer sleeve for the 2-year-old’s actual birthday today.
So far the expert hostess has only teased that “It’s going to be a special day.” And that could be said of literally any of the 730 days the toddler has enjoyed on this earth. (And more than a few before, Kylie spending much of her pregnancy happily cocooned at home, indulging with In-N-Out burgers, Eggo waffles and doughnuts and generally having, as she put it on Twitter, “such a perfect experience.”)
Because from the moment Stormi arrived home to her $12 million, 13,000-square-foot Hidden Hills, Calif. palace—wrapped in the same nightgown her mother had worn some 21 years earlier—life has been pretty ideal.
Wanting for nothing thanks to Mom’s billion-dollar net worth (musician dad Travis Scott brings an additional $8 million or so to the table), her riches include far more than a $12,500 Fendi stroller and a collection of pint-sized kicks that were waiting for her long before she could even indicate her preference for wearing shoes, much less walk. She was born with built-in best friends (her fellow “triplets”: Kim Kardashian‘s 2-year-old daughter Chicago West and Khloe Kardashian‘s 22-month-old little girl True Thompson), a collection of willing babysitters just waiting for the chance to lavish her with love and teach her the art of the selfie and two influencer parents who count creating her as their greatest accomplishment.
Which is impressive, considering that’s a list that includes endless magazine covers, No. 1 albums and a multimillion-dollar company that made 22-year-old Kylie the youngest self-made billionaire ever.
So, yeah, Stormi has it pretty good. Having lived just two years on this earth, she’s already enjoyed more vacations than many people will experience in a lifetime. Or as Dad put it in his Rolling Stone cover interview, “She got more stamps on her passport than a lot of motherf–kers.”
There was Turks and Caicos for Dad’s 26th birthday—a trip that included the requisite white sand beaches, unbelievably blue waters and a rented yacht—the South of France when Scott was tapped to perform at a Cannes Lions Festival beach bash, a tour of Italy last summer, a snowy getaway this December that included a snowboarding lesson for Stormi and a trip to Hawaii where the rapper chose to record his hit album Astroworld. And that wasn’t her only contribution to the Grammy-nominated multi-platinum bestseller.
Though Stormi wasn’t old enough to voice a single lyric, Nicki Minaj credited the then-6-month-old with helping Scott best her fourth disc, Queen in record sales thanks to Kylie’s clever social media vow that fans might spy her and the infant out on the forthcoming tour.
And the Astroworld: Wish You Were Here Tour did, indeed, count the pair as the most steady groupies, with a source telling E! News that Kylie “wants to make sure the family is together as one unit as much as possible.”
The trio made the most of their travels, taking time for sightseeing in Denver, Minneapolis and New York City. And to ensure Stormi doesn’t feel too penned in, Kylie noted in one video that they make sure to get an extra room at each hotel, “so she can play around and have more space.” (Well, that and so Mom has a place to hang her extensive wardrobe and lay out her collection of Kylie Cosmetics.)
Because while Scott is the headliner, Stormi is definitely the star of this show. “We don’t let nothing come over Stormi time. Stormi Saturdays,” he told Rolling Stone. “We don’t f–k around with those. Even with me on tour, Stormi pulls up. She’ll travel.”
Not that her existence is any less fun back at home in California. Her two bedrooms (a butterfly-themed nursery at Mom’s plus an extra for when she’s hanging at the Kylie Cosmetics offices) are filled with the typical wares one would expect of a celebrity offspring. There’s her two Fendi strollers and her $620 Jeremy Scott for CYBEX ride, should she prefer a change of pace.
Plus, now that she’s on the move, she has her own whips: a mini Lamborghini covered in Louis Vuitton logos and a fire-engine red toddler-sized Ferrari.
Her wardrobe includes a selection of kicks from Gucci, Giuseppe Zanotti and Louis Vuitton—plus an endless stream of toddler-sized Adidas Yeezys courtesy of Uncle Ye, designer wares from Burberry, Stella McCartney and Ralph & Russo and an accessories collection that most adults would drool over.
Should she need a place to store her Troll dolls, she could use her mini Birkin or the $620 Louis Vuitton Mini HL Speedy Bag Aunt Kim brought back from Japan last Christmas and she’ll never lack for ice, what with Dad gifting her a diamond chain for her first birthday and Mom adding in a massive diamond ring this Christmas.
And we’re not even sure she’d count that as her best present what with her parents’ surprising her with a visit from Trolls‘ character Poppy and “Lovey” Kris Jenner chipping in a whole playhouse, should Stormi need to get away.
The playhouse was actually an exact replica of the one Kylie chilled in two decades ago. “I used to have a house like this when I was Stormi’s age,” Kylie shared, taking in the surprise, complete with the actual wooden furniture she once sat at. “This makes me want to cry.”
Because there’s nothing more the beauty mogul wants than to give her daughter an idyllic childhood like the one she enjoyed.
Though Stormi’s may come with a few extra lessons on how to be a boss. The 2-year-old has already mastered many of the basics, including her colors, numbers and letter. A whiz at vocabulary, she “says a new word every day,” Kylie gushed to E! News last August. “This morning it was trampoline. I’m like, ‘How do you know how to say trampoline? You’re one-and-a-half.’ She’s so smart.”
And a position in the family business is at the ready whenever she is, with Kylie musing to Forbes that she might pass her multimillion-dollar brand on to her daughter “if she’s into it.”
Survey says: Yes, the duo’s recent collab born from Stormi’s obsession with all things beauty. “Every time I’m wearing lipstick, she notices,” Kylie shared in an October makeup tutorial. “She looks at me and she’s like, ‘Lip! Lip! Lip!” As for when she’ll let Stormi start using her own lip kit on the regular, that’s a wait-and-see situation: “I haven’t even thought about when I’m going to let Stormi wear makeup.”
Though Kylie and Scott aren’t currently together, they’ve aced coparenting 101, often making time to hang out with Stormi en masse, whether that means a trip to Disney or just an afternoon at Kylie crib. “They got along well and were so happy being a family with Stormi,” an insider told E! News of a chill October get-together. “It looked like nothing has changed with them.”
Their latest project, of course, was putting together Stormi’s massive second birthday bash. Though topping last year’s Astroworld-themed fantasy come to life was a tall order, the pair were up to the challenge. “Kylie is going all out again,” a source told E! News ahead of the big day. “She wants it to be just as incredible as her first birthday party and it will be completely over the top.”
We would almost be disappointed with anything less.
