The former TOWIE star gave birth in May, but revealed she had chosen her daughter’s name over a decade ago.
Frankie’s boyfriend picked their son’s moniker in honour of his favourite character from the X-Men franchise, Wolverine whose real name is Logan.
Speaking to OK! magazine, Frankie revealed: ‘Luella has always been my girl name since I was 20 – I’ve never told anyone the name in case they stole it.
Amazing: Frankie’s face was full of emotion as she met her children for the first time
‘Luke chose Logan’s name as he loves the [X-Men] character Wolverine, who’s called Logan. They both mean warrior, but we only found that out recently.’
Although the twins are only a few weeks old, Frankie thinks they are already showing very different personalities.
She said : ‘Logan is a dream, he’s so good and so chill. Luella is sassy, but she pulls the cutest faces. They look so different. Logan looks like Luke and Luella looks like me, but she’s petite and Logan is long.’

The reality star, who has been in a relationship with Luke for three years, announced she was pregnant with twins, which came as a huge ‘shock’, in February.
Speaking in an earlier issue of to Ok! magazine, she said: ‘The lady scanning me was focusing on one baby and was then like, “What else do we have here then?” and I was so shocked and asked, “Are we having twins?”
‘I burst out crying, tears of happiness. It was just so beautiful. It was lovely. We had an early scan as we were so excited. There are no twins in the family and we conceived naturally. They’re not identical.
‘It was such a shock, but it’s a blessing and we are so over the moon.
‘It’s amazing. As soon as we told the family, I asked if twins run on either side and as far as we all know, they don’t.’
A month later, Frankie shared the news that she was having a baby boy and a baby girl during a gender reveal party, with her famous family in attendance.
The reality star couldn’t hold back the tears at the event, where she told the happy news that she was having a boy and a girl with Luke.
For the reveal, the venue set off one pink firework and one blue firework, as the group stood and looked up at the sky.
Frankie – who quit TOWIE in 2014 – has kept details of her romance mainly under wraps since going public with her beau in 2019.
Speaking to Closer magazine, the TV personality revealed: ‘Yes, I’m in a relationship. We’ve been seeing each other for a few months, and I’m really happy.
‘He treats me well and is very, very, supportive in every way, we’re good together.’
