EastEnders’ James Bye and wife Victoria welcome baby boy and share adorable name

The couple welcomed their son on Sunday and they've now shared his name with fans

EastEnders star James Bye and his wife Victoria have welcomed a baby boy and they've now shared his adorable name and nickname with fans.

The couple's son was born on Sunday, 18 June and he has since made his Instagram debut in a cute picture shared by James, who plays Martin Fowler on the BBC soap.

The couple announced their son's name and his adorable nickname.

"Rufus Gray… 18.06.23… 8lb 1oz," the pair captioned an Instagram picture of their baby son sleeping. They also revealed his charming nickname 'Roo'.

The pos,t written by Victoria, said: "You’re here… Our new little Bye… You kept us waiting for such a long time little one, but oh wow were you worth the wait.

"We’re absolutely over the moon, smitten kittens and just head over heels for you. Our precious little rainbow… and boy have you brought the sun with you. (Like seriously, we’re all melting).

"And erm, check out the hair! A little styler like your brothers already. It’s safe to say. We’re just in love. This first week has been a whirlwind of you."

The couple announced their baby news in January.

The couple feel like 'the happiest pair' now they have a fourth child, making them a family of six.

Victoria wrote: "Your Daddy & me feel like the happiest pair… with our crazy, funny little family charging around us, and you, slap bang in the middle, a windy smile on your face amidst all the noise and chaos. Dogs barking, school runs & armpit farts galore whilst you dribble sicky burps, cooing away, happy as larry…

"Yep, you fit right in."

Last week, Victoria announced Rufus' arrival and opened up about her labour experience.

James and Victoria welcomed their fourth son on 18 June.

"After a long induction, a long labour, lots of ups & downs & all the drama along the way (oh don’t you worry I’ll be filling you in on everything…) our hearts are near to bursting with the arrival of our precious baby boy," she wrote.

"I just can’t believe I have him, here, in my arms, safely home and ours to keep for always. It still hasn’t sunk in… I’m definitely still in shock and I still can’t believe he’s mine.

"It’s been a long old journey to get him and now as he lays against my chest, whimpering softly, already starting to root for some booby time I feel like I’m the luckiest mama in the land."

James and Victoria are also parents to sons Edward, eight, Louis, six, and Hugo, three.
