Charlotte Crosby has revealed her baby girl’s name after sharing she’d welcomed a daughter with partner Jake Ankers.

After earlier this month, star Charlotte finally revealed what she’ll be calling her first child with chauffer boyfriend Jake after sharing a black and white photograph of her daughter’s hands on Monday.

The 32-year-old gushed over the new born: ‘Alba Jean Ankers 14.10.22 [heart emoji]

‘Our hearts are so full my baby girl you have shown us a whole new meaning to life. Your perfect in absolutely every way!

‘Mammy and Daddy are so so so lucky to call you our little girl [heart emoji] you are loved so much more then you will ever know. [SIC]’

Charlotte’s Geordie Shore co-stars were quick to share their love of the name, with Holly Hagan writing: ‘Gorgeous gorgeous name for a gorgeous gorgeous bby girl,’ and Marnie Simpson adding: ‘Beautiful little Alba jean.’

Comedian Katherine Ryan chimed in on Alba’s hands, writing: ‘Fab nails,’ and alongside heart emoji Maura Higgins mused: ‘Huge congratulations to you both.’

Following Alba’s birth, memebrs of the Crosby family were quick to share their excitement and publicly welcome the latest addition.

Charlotte’s father Gary was the first to announce the birth of Alba, whose name was kept a secret for weeks after the delivery.

He tweeted: ‘So, officially a grandfather! Little girl, all is well. Excited for the new chapter in our little family!’

Announcing the news she was expecting with Jake last April, Charlotte opened up about her fears when it came to the birthing process.

The Celebrity Big Brother star explained the decision to have a caesarean section was due to a previous ectopic pregnancy by her former co-star and ex-boyfriend, Gaz Beadle, in 2016.

As a result of the near-fatal experience, the reality star admitted she was ‘too scared’ to give birth naturally.

She said: ‘I’ve never really been keen to push a baby out of my vagina.

‘I’m too scared to have a natural birth. There’s always been something scary about it for me and when I had the ectopic pregnancy it scared me even more.

‘Because I went through that horrendous time where I almost died, I know how things can go drastically wrong.’

Arriving on October 14, Alba remained nameless for some time before she was introduced to the world, which could be due to a minor mishap the celeb remembered while deciding on baby names during the first two months of her pregnancy.

Intending to call her baby girl Harla, Charlotte scrapped the name quickly after realising its rude hidden meaning.

Sharing the funny insight on the Charlotte Crosby Always On podcast, she explained: ‘I liked Harla because I’d never heard it before and I thought it was quite individual, but then I researched “harlot”, which means “prostitute” basically.

‘So I was like, “No… no”. Because what if people say she’s Harla the harlot?’
