The baby name revelations are coming in thick and fast these days, with Amy Hart now joining the club.
Following the news that she and her boyfriend Sam Rason welcomed their first child into the world, the Love Island star has shared their newborn's name and the adorable inspiration behind it.
And it's got the seal of approval from fellow Islander Molly-Mae Hague, who famously left her fans hanging for months after teasing her baby girl's name Bambi.
Hart, who's wanted to be a mother for a long time, has been on quite the journey with her partner, having undergone an expensive fertility treatment to freeze her eggs last year.
But it's all worth it, as the 30-year-old took to social media to announce her little one’s arrival on Tuesday (7 March).
Rather than leaving people hanging a la Kylie Jenner, just one day later, Hart and Rason shared their baby boy's name: Stanley Samuel Giles Rason.
Elaborating on their decision in an Instagram post, they said: "Stanley: We loved the name and also Amy’s Grandad Geoff's middle name.
"Samuel: After @samuelrason obviously but also Amy's brother is Samuel too!
"Giles: Nanny and Grandad's last name, hopefully he’ll inherit their love of shots!"
The post went on to explain the photos, saying the first one was captured when little Stanley was just a couple of hours old.
"Baby Stanley already got Mummy’s back to prove that Amy’s big lips are indeed genetic," they said.
For the second snap, showing the tech entrepreneur holding his bundle of joy, the couple joked that Stanley's facial expression is 'when Daddy says he’s going home for the evening'.
Family and friends are over the moon for the pair, including Molly-Mae, who wrote: "Beautiful Stanley, adorable."
Fellow reality TV stars Billie Faiers and Charlotte Crosby added, "Congratulations," and, "Absolutely gorgeous."
Fans are equally as delighted, with one writing: "Omg Amy and Sam, he’s gorgeous! What a beautiful name... congratulations again to you both."
Another said: "Oh my goodness Amy!! He is so beautiful what an angel baby... So happy for you both huge congratulations."
Hart announced the good news of Stanley's arrival earlier this week while explaining that she's had an extensive recovery time as she adjusts to life as a new mum alongside her long-term boyfriend.
Though the former air hostess did say that she and her little one are recovering at home now, she revealed that she spent five days in hospital after giving birth.
Hart also said that she’d had four days' worth of contractions before her baby boy arrived last Friday.
Thankfully she's on the mend, with Hart signing off the post by saying: "Thank you to everyone who sent their well wishes. We really appreciated it over the last few days."
