The Sun‘s Dan Wootton reports that the name they’ve chosen is Dali, a tribute to surrealist painter Salvador Dali, whom Noel is said to greatly admire.

Noel and Lliana, who’ve been together for 8 years, have not revealed whether their new arrival is a boy or a girl. They tend to keep pretty mum about their personal lives.

But, if the news is 100% true, we reckon this name is really lovely choice, either way ???

Regardless, it seems that Dali has been a huge influence on 44-year-old new dad Noel.

He apparently based his surprising decision to host Great British Bake Off on the fact that Dali himself did a chocolate advert, and appeared in several other ads throughout his career as a surrealist artist.

Shortly after the news was announced, Noel’s pal Serge Pizzorno, from the band Kasabian, even said: “We figured Salvador Dali did a chocolate advert, so that sort of makes it all right.”
