Their daughter Kaiya Bella Luna Stormare was born on May 9, 2009. Stormare currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter.Stormare is the godfather of Gustaf Skarsgård, the son of Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård. While working on a Disney film in Prague, he was introduced to Bob Dylan after Dylan's concert, by bassist Tony Garnier. His nephew is The Sound of Arrows singer-songwriter Stefan Storm.Stormare is a Christian and has said that he has had contact with God. When he was young, he participated in Baptist meetings in Arbrå. He has a strong spiritual side, inherited from his mother, whom he has said was a medium, and who supposedly inherited that ability from her own father.
Stormare was born in Kumla in Örebro County, Sweden, but soon after, his family moved to Arbrå, Gävleborg County. He changed his surname when he discovered that he shared it with a senior student at an acting academy. Like "storm" (a word which has the same meaning in Swedish and English), "stormare" is a Swedish word, meaning "stormer". Before settling on "Stormare", he briefly contemplated changing his name to "Retep Mrots", which is simply "Peter Storm" backwards.
