Danielle Lloyd has revealed her new son's name after giving birth two weeks ago - and adds that she's not finished yet...

Danielle, 33, became a mum for the fourth time just under a fortnight on 13 September - her fourth son.

Her youngest son is the former model's first child with fiancé Michael O'Neill, and she has waited until now to reveal his name.

The little boy, who was born weighing 8lb 12oz, has been named Ronnie after Danielle's grandfather - even joking that it was the same name as one half of the famous crime lord duo The Kray Twins.

She explained that she had been torn between Ronnie and Leo - and revealed that her three other sons had actually picked his name in the end.

Danielle told OK! Magazine: "While I was pregnant, it was a toss up between Ronnie and Leo, but we asked the boys and they all preferred Ronnie, so that's what we went with.

"It's also my late granddad's name, which makes it extra special."

The new mum added that he sounded "like a snooker player", referring to world-famous international player Ronnie O'Sullivan, before joking: "Now we just need a Reggie and we'll have our two little Krays."

Er, not sure that's actually something that you want, Dan!

But Danielle's labour didn't exactly go according to plan as there was a moment where the little lad's shoulder got caught on the way out, leaving Danielle fearing for his life.

She said: "Ronnie got stuck during labour for what felt like a lifetime. We were so worried he wouldn't be able to breathe."

Thankfully, doctors were able to deliver him safely and soundly.

Despite the fact that Danielle now has four boys, she's still keeping her fingers crossed for a girl in the future.

It's a well-known fact that Danielle has been desperate for a baby girl after three sons with her ex-Jamie O'Hara, revealing at the time of her pregnancy announcement that they even wanted a baby sister.

She confessed to OK!: "Having Ronnie has made me and Michael more of a unit, and I think another baby - a little girl especially - would only cement that more."
