Rachel Stevens gave birth to her second child on 1st April and now the former S Club 7 singer has finally come up with a name for her little bundle of joy.

The 35-year-old star and wife of Alex Bourne, 36, - who already have three-year-old daughter Amelie - have revealed the unusual (but utterly adorable) name via her official website.

Rachel posted: "Introducing Miss Minnie Blossom Bourne. The pitter patter of (tiny) feet all 8 of them! Bursting with love xx"

Minnie is a name which came about as the pet form of Wilma and Wilhelmina in the 1880s - and is said to mean "Seeking Protection".

The tiny tot weighs just 7 pounds 7 oz and, to celebrate the announcement of her name and them all coming home, Rachel released this cute picture.

It's just too adorable, isn't it?

She also shared a photo which showed each family member's shoes lined up in a row in front of their respective dates of births.

Proud dad Alex announced the news of Minnie's birth via Twitter earlier in the month, writing:

'Delighted to announce the safe arrival of our gorgeous little girl! @MsRachelStevens and baby both really well. Amelie happy and ‘cited (sic).'
