Kylie Jenner, 25, became a mum-of-two in February last year but has only just revealed her son’s name on Instagram, which some found quite offensive. The very next day Kylie shocked followers by wearing a “faux art creation” featuring a hyper-realistic lion’s head while attending the Schiaparelli show during Paris Fashion Week 2023.
On Saturday, the socialite took to Instagram with some adorable mum-and-son snaps, finally sharing her baby boy’s name with her 379 million followers in the run-up to his first birthday.
She simply wrote in the caption: “AIRE” with a heart emoji.
While many celebrated the revelation, some of her Arabic-speaking followers quickly picked up on a potential issue as the name translates to an NSFW body part.
One follower shared: “Umm should someone tell Kylie Jenner she renamed her son Aire which is a common Arabic expression for ‘my penis’ or nah?
“Anyway, I doubt many people have noticed. After all, Arabic is only spoken by around 415 million people.”
Almost instantly, Kylie’s baby name became the laughing stock of the comments section.
However, many still supported and celebrated the makeup mogul’s name choice, pointing out the “adorable” correlation between the siblings.
Kylie and rapper Travis Scott now have two children thematically named Stormi, four, and Aire.
The businesswoman was candid about the difficulties naming their son, especially as she went into labour before they had decided on one.
Last September, she addressed the upcoming name change for her youngest child on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Kylie explained she “thought (the name) was going to come to us when we saw him”.
Unfortunately, that was not the case and the new parents were given just 24 hours to fill out the birth certificate.
