Travis memorably deflected discussions of future fatherhood in an interview with Billboard which was released about a month before Stormi was born. “I don’t want to talk about it. These are just guesses,” he said of Kylie’s pregnancy, which was never officially confirmed by the couple. “Let them continue to fish.”
Thereafter, there was no word throughout the process about Travis’ involvement.
But their silence made what happened when Kylie gave birth to Stormi on February 1, 2018, all the sweeter: A few days after their daughter arrived, Kylie shared a video from her pregnancy trip that featured images of Travis with her on doctor’s appointments, including a photo of them looking at a sonogram together, and if not completely along the thrilling ride.
“Coming in, I was, like, nervous and scared,” Travis shared with Ellen on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November 2018. “You know, we were just both, like, young. But when you have a baby in your arms for the first time, it’s just, like, it’s out of control. It’s like that. everything, like, a chain that takes your whole body. I never thought I could love something so strong, you know? It’s crazy. “
As he said in 2015, “fame is not important”.
Family, however, is everything.
