The new mum could be seen perching on a windowsill wearing light-coloured trousers and a blouse while kissing her child, who stood on the sill looking out of the window, on the head.

Kitty decided to finally confirm the name of her daughter as Athena, which has Greek origins meaning 'goddess of wisdom'.

She captioned the post: "Athena watching the world go by."

Dozens of thousands have since rushed in to share their reactions to the moniker with one Instagram user writing: "What a beautiful picture & and a beautiful name."

A second praised: "Congratulations. She is so precious. I love her name."

"Such a beautiful name!" echoed a third, while a fourth chimed in: "Oooh darling... Athena is so gorgeous!!"

Another penned: "What a gorgeous name!"

And a final Instagram user added: "Athena is adorable! What a beautiful photo of mum and daughter. Love it!!"

Kitty first announced she had secretly given birth to little Athena back in March - just in time for Mother's Day.

She shared a compilation of photos to Instagram of herself and the tot, captioning the reel: "It’s the joy of my life to be your mummy, little one. I love you unconditionally.

"Happy Mother’s Day to those who celebrate today."

At the time, Kitty didn't reveal her baby's name of gender but her 31-year-old sister, Lady Eliza Spencer, commented: "My perfect little niece."
