Molly-Mae Hague finally put fans out of their misery by sharing her and Tommy Fury's name for their new baby girl this week.
And now, the adorable meanings behind the name have been revealed.
The former Love Island stars teased fans over what they were set to call their bundle of joy during the pregnancy, with Molly-Mae suggesting people were either going to 'love it or hate it'.
Obviously they didn't call her Marmite in the end.
Social media was rife with speculation, even after the 23-year-old gave birth, especially since Molly-Mae had a name picked out since she was a kid and said she'd 'not seen any other girls with the name before'.
Yesterday (31 January), the rumours were finally put to bed with an Instagram post in which the happy couple revealed their baby girl is called Bambi.
You can't deny, she wasn't exaggerating when she said it was 'a really really unusual and a different name'. When was the last time you met a Bambi?
The post features a photo of the child's room with the moniker written on the wall and a toy of the Disney character alongside the baby in her crib.
Although the image clearly suggests Molly-Mae was inspired by the classic movie, it turns out there are a number of sweet meanings behind the name too.
Primarily, it is of Italian origin and a diminutive of the world 'bambino', which means child.
But any fan of singer Baekhyun worth their salt will know that Bambi also translates to 'night rain' in Korean.
And if that weren't cute enough, the word can also mean 'pink' in Arabic.
Some fans thought it was going to be 'Halo' after spotting a picture of the word written on the wall of a nursery they were convinced had been built in Molly-Mae's house.
However, that turned out to be a bit of a red herring.
Fans have been sending their best wishes to Molly-Mae and Tommy, as well as passing along their approval of Bambi's name.
One person said it was 'such a cute name' while plenty of others said it was 'beautiful'.
Others congratulated the happy couple after Molly-Mae shared a photo of them in the hospital with their new arrival.
Maura Higgins, who was on the same season of Love Island as the pair, wrote: "So so so proud of you always... she is so perfect."
Meanwhile Zoe Hague said: "My beautiful baby niece. I love you all, so proud."
