Sam Faiers has announced on social media her baby son’s traditional name, a couple of weeks after she welcomed her third child with partner Paul Knightley.
The 31-year-old mum-of-three revealed that her baby boy, who was born on 15 May, is called Edward.
Taking to Instagram, the former TOWIE star shared a gorgeous photo of her with baby Edward, as well as announcing his name to the world in the caption.
She wrote: “Edward Knightley. A month ago today you were born at home surrounded by so much love.
“It’s for sure been a game changer for mummy having 3 little Knightley’s, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I have soaked up every second with you darling, this is just the beginning..”
Sam continued: “Whilst it feels like this month has gone really quick, I can’t help but think what an amazing month it’s been.
“I’ve really taken each day to just rest & be with my little newborn. I think I have an extra 5000 new images on my camera role.
“I couldn’t even think about doing much else than being at home with my family and really taking this time to settle the baby in & just all be together.
“I still have a way to go yet, this adjustment has been super full on but equally loving every moment. I’m so proud my heart could burst.”
Sam concluded by paying thanks to her fans, writing: “Last thing.. thank you so so much for everyone’s kind messages.
“I often read through all my DM’s during night feeds so thank you.”
Sam has Paul Jr, six, and daughter Rosie, four, with partner Paul, 34.
She had previously revealed to her sister Billie Shepherd on their podcast, The Sam & Billie Show, that she had already got a boy’s name ready.
Sam said: “I’ve got a boy name that I love and always have loved and I’ve also got a girl’s name that I’ve always loved, but I’m not sharing it.
“I think you already know.”
Billie replied at the time: “I know the boy’s name but I’m not sure on the girl’s name.”
