Lucy Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas have named their new baby girl after welcoming her to their family three weeks ago.
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Lucy, 30, shared the news with her Instagram followers after admitting they were finding it ‘really difficult’ to pick a moniker for their newborn.
During a Q&A session, one fan asked: ‘Have you named her yet?’, to which Lucy excitedly replied: ‘We have!!!!!!!!’

While she did not reveal the little girl’s name, she promised her devotees they would not have long to wait.
She wrote: ‘I’ll post her name later x.’
Meanwhile, Lucy revealed during the same Q&A that her daughter was born with a tongue tie.

The condition, which is common, means there is a shorter strip of skin connecting the tongue to the bottom of the baby’s mouth.
In response to a question about breastfeeding, Lucy said: ‘It’s quite full on.
‘She feeds a lot, and I don’t think she seemed satisfied and we discovered she had a tongue tie.
‘So we had it cut and I’m hoping her feeding improves and becomes more efficient.
‘Also I’m working on her latch as it’s not great. I think the hardest part is not being able to give Roman all my attention when I’m spending lots of time feeding.’

Lucy went on to say that her daughter was born seven days after her due date weighing 8lbs 7oz.
It comes after Lucy announced she had given birth at the end of May this year.
She shared a black and white image of the little girl’s hand on her Instagram page.
Taking to her Stories, she added: ‘She’s here.’
Lucy previously told HELLO! Magazine that she was convinced she was pregnant with a girl, and was delighted when a scan confirmed her suspicions.
‘I had an inkling that I was having a girl, but I was a bit more unsure than with Roman. With him I just knew – I don’t know why but even before we found out, I said: “I know, one hundred per cent, it’s a boy”, Lucy said.
The couple also revealed in the interview that they were struggling to come up with names for their daughter.
They explained how they had a long list of 15 picked out but would wait until she was born to decide.
Lucy and Ryan, 38, are also parents to son Roman, two, while Ryan is father to daughter Scarlett, 13, from his relationship with Tina O’Brien.
