Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are trying to make their son's name change official, according to TMZ. In the request, they state they "regret the initial name choice of Wolf Jacques Webster. Now that Petitioners have had the chance to spend time with their baby, they believe the name Aire Webster is a better fit." In January, a few weeks before Wolf was set to celebrate his first birthday, Kylie revealed his new name, Aire. It’s of Hebrew origin and it reportedly means "Lion of God." Kylie and Travis' first child is named Stormi, so Aire at least pairs better, if that’s something to consider.

Ben Affleck has finally revealed what his wife, Jennifer Lopez, said to him at the Grammys in February. Some thought she was telling Ben not to drink, but according to Ben, when he leaned over to JLo and joked that he was going to leave her sitting next to someone else, she responded back jokingly, "You better f***ing not leave." According to Daily Mail, he said of their banter, “That’s a husband-and-wife thing.” He was just being goofy because he was “bored” at the event - or as he called it, his wife’s “work thing.”
