Newborn tot Carys Douglas has been given her mother's middle name ZETA to uphold a family tradition.

The baby - born to star Michael Douglas and his OSCAR-winning wife CATHERINE ZETA JONES - will carry on the moniker first used by Catherine's grandmother.

The 86-year-old Welsh native told of her delight at the tribute. She says, "I'm thrilled. It's so nice that they've had a girl. I've loved being called Zeta and I'm very proud they kept the name alive.

"Hopefully they are coming over in the summer so they can show off the baby."

Ecstatic Michael told reporters, "She's a beautiful, healthy baby girl. I am very happy."
