Now the star has revealed her daughter’s unique name in another adorable Instagram post.

Publishing an photo of herself tenderly kissing her baby on the head, Ferne wrote earlier this afternoon: “I thought today would be the perfect day to tell you all her name… meet Sunday.”

Ferne was quickly inundated with well-wishes from her followers – although the name was met with a mixed response.

One fan wrote: “Aww Sunday’s a great name. Congratulations Ferne, she’s beautiful!!”

Others added: “Congrats she is beautiful! I’m not gonna lie say I like the name but each to there own.”

“How unique and pretty all at the same time.”

“Oh no I thought it was going to be something nice!! Was she born on a Sunday?”

Ferne learned that she was pregnant with her first child just days before her boyfriend, Arthur Collins, was arrested for a brutal acid attack inside Mangle nightclub in Dalston on April 17.

Sunday’s father, Arthur Collins, is currently on trial for an acid attack.

Collins is currently on trial for the attack, with the 25 year old admitting to throwing the substance but insisting that he didn’t know what it was.

He denies five counts of grievous bodily harm with intent, and nine counts of actual bodily harm against 14 people.

Ferne previously vowed that she will be raising her baby alone, with the TV star inundated with support from the general public as well as her famous friends, such as Vicky Pattison and Rylan Clark-Neal.
