Rachel Stevens has named her daughter Minnie Blossom Bourne.

The 35-year-old star and her husband Alex Bourne welcomed their second child into the world last Tuesday (01.04.14), and the proud parents have finally announced the tiny tot's moniker.

Taking to her Twitter account earlier today (08.04.14), Rachel posted a picture of her, Alex, their three-year-old daughter Amelie and Minnie all face-down on the bed with their feet on show.

She accompanied the black and white shot with the caption: ''Introducing Miss Minnie Blossom Bourne. The pitter patter of (tiny) feet all 8 of them! Bursting with love xx (sic)''.

Alex was the first to announce Minnie, who weighed 7lbs 7oz, had arrived ''safely'' into the world last week.

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

The couple, who got married in 2009, later released a statement saying: ''We're so happy that baby has arrived safely. Within minutes of meeting her we were totally smitten.

''Amelie is happy and excited to have a little sister to play with and we can't wait to introduce her to the whole family.''

The former S Club 7 singer announced she was pregnant with her second child back in September and, although she was aware she was expecting a girl, she kept the baby's sex a secret from the public until her arrival.
