Sam Faiers has revealed the name of her newborn son and she's not followed the celebrity baby name trend for unusual choices.

The 25-year-old TOWIE star, who gave birth at the end of 2015, revealed she and boyfriend Paul Knightley have called their son Paul Tony.

No unusual spelling, no uncommon middle name - just a very traditional choice.

"We always wanted him to be called Paul after his dad," she told OK! Magazine.

"It’s traditional and we didn’t have any other names on the list, so he’s Paul and his middle name is Tony after Paul’s brother, his Uncle Tony."

The new mum added that she hasn't quite got used to using her son's name yet, saying they continue to either call him "baby Paul" or simply "baby" at the moment.

Faiers has been giving her fans an insight into family life by sharing sweet snaps on Instagram.

"Walk in the park with our baby #sundayafternoon," she captioned a black and white photo on 17 January.

Faiers announced she had given birth with an Instagram post on Wednesday 30 December.

The new mum captioned the image: "Welcome to the world our beautiful baby boy 29.12.15".

The couple, who have been together since October 2014, announced they were expecting their first child together in August 2015.
