Proud parents Jordan and Peter Andre have named their baby daughter Princess Tiaamii.
The glamour model, who gave birth to the baby girl on June 29, said that they chose the first name because the girl was "our princess". And Andre turned up with the middle name by joining his mother's name, Thea, with that of Jordan's mother, Amy.
"Her name is Princess Tiaamii. Princess because she is our princess and Tiaamii was Pete's idea because it's taken from our mums' names. We've put an accent over the first 'a' to make it a bit more exotic and two 'i's at the end just to make it look a bit different," the Mirror quoted her, as saying.
"We love it because it's unique, plus it means something special to us. I'm going to get a tattoo on the back of my neck with a crown and 'Princess' underneath," she added.
Former pop star Andre added that they were "happy and proud" of their daughter. "Katie always loved the name Princess but everyone thought it was a bit over the top. I loved it too but I wanted to name her after both our mums and then I just woke up one morning and thought 'I know! We'll just put them together!'" he said.
"If people don't like it, that's up to them. We're really happy and proud," he added.
Jordan also divulged that she had considered calling the girl Tinkerbell, but discarded the idea as too many celebrities had chosen it for their dogs. The couple also have a boy, Junior, while Jordan has another son, Harvey, from a previous relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke.
