Gogglebox star Shaun Malone has revealed the inspiration for his son's name – and his partner has no idea.
The Channel 4 reality star and his girlfriend welcomed their first child together in July.
Shaun announced the news on Instagram with a picture of the newborn, writing: "Hi everyone this is Louis Malone 8lb 12oz."
Speaking to the Metro this week, Shaun explained where the moniker came from and it turns out he had a little celebrity inspiration.
"We came up with the name Louis because it’s a nice name. She [his partner] didn’t kind of know this but deep down he’s named after Louis Theroux.
"I am a big fan of Louis Theroux so I have got to name him after the main man himself."
But that's not the only surprise the Gogglebox family has been hiding.
The Malones, consisting of mum Julie, dad Tom and brothers Tom Jr and Shaun, are actually a clan of six.
Julie and Tom have another two children who don't appear on the show.
Explaining why they appear as a family of four, Shaun previously told Metro: "When the show approached us, it was just me, Tom [Jr], mum and dad who were living together.
"But Vanessa [his older sister] was at university and Lee [older brother] was off living in his house, so they weren't living at home, so it wouldn't have made sense for them to be on the show – that's literally the only reason."
Gogglebox returns to Channel 4 tonight (Friday, September 11) at 9pm.
