Announcing your baby's name is pretty important – they'll be stuck with your choice for the rest of their life. But we have to say, Billi Mucklow may have gone a tad too far with this baby name announcement. The Only Way Is Essex star and her footballer fiancé Andy Carroll have named their newborn son Arlo.
Arlo has several meanings – in old English it means 'army hill', in Spanish means 'barberry tree' and in Italian is the equivalent to the English name Charles.
Not content with announcing the name, they wanted a picture to accompany it – so spelt their baby boy's moniker out in an extravagant arrangement of purple flowers and white roses and laid little Arlo out on the floor for the Instagram picture. Which, however beautiful, may be a little over the top. "Arlo Thomas Carroll#LittleAC @andytcarroll," she commented on the snap.
Billi gave birth to her first child on Tuesday and shared a black and white Instagram picture of her little family.
"Welcome To The World Our Beautiful Baby Boy ? @andytcarroll You Are My Rock ❤️ Love My Boys More Than Anything ? Best Feeling In The World! #BabyCarroll #LittleAC ?," she commented.
