Peter and Emily Andre have let slip the adorable nickname they've given to their youngest daughter. The couple took a whole month to decide on the perfect name for their new bundle of joy, eventually settling on Arabella Rose Andrea, which they announced a month following her birth on Tuesday, 2 April.

In a recent heartwarming video posted on social media by NHS doctor Emily, she shared the sweet moniker they use for their third child together. As they enjoyed the sunny spells, Emily uploaded a clip showing their little one in a colourful feather-patterned sleepsuit with the caption "Little Belle watching the kids play water balloons", complete with a red heart emoji.

Before they officially named her Arabella Rose Andrea, the Mysterious Girl singer revealed that Athena, Olivia, and Charlotte were also in the running. In his most recent column, the doting dad of five shared: "Arabella is now seven weeks old where has the time gone?

"I still haven't called Arabella by her name. I absolutely love it and she really suits it but I still call her 'bubba'". He went on to talk about the tough early days filled with sleepless nights, a challenge he's no stranger to with Arabella's four older siblings - Millie, 10, Theo, seven, and his children Princess, 16, and Junior, 18, with ex-wife Katie Price.

"As for sleeping, night and day are blurring into one at the moment. Ems is definitely getting less sleep than me because of the breastfeeding but we try to split the nights as much as possible.

"Emily and I are hoping for a little date night soon but our focus is just on the kids at the moment. With all five of them living in the house, they all have different demands. It's busy, but I wouldn't change it for the world."

Peter revealed that he gave his wife Emily, who he wed in 2015, the final say on their baby's name. "A couple of weeks ago I said to Emily that it was down to her to pick a baby name after all, she'd brought our baby into the world. Emily wanted us to decide together, but when she came up with the name Arabella Rose, I immediately thought, "That's so beautiful."
