The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has taken to social media to announce the moniker she has given to her daughter, and she decided the "perfect day" to reveal the news would be on the day she is named after.

Alongside a picture of the 27-year-old reality star cradling her tiny tot, which has been shared on her Instagram account on Sunday (05.11.17), she wrote: "I thought today would be the perfect day to tell you all her name...meet Sunday (sic)."

The 'This Morning' presenter hinted to the name of her first child as behind the pair was a sign with the letters spelling out "Sunday" hanging above her head.

The television personality was "so in love and bursting with pride" when she welcomed her daughter into the world one week ahead of her due date.

Ferne previously shared a picture of the sleeping child - with her head cropped out of the shot - on Instagram and, alongside a string of heart emojis, wrote: "Wellcome to the world my darling. Didn't expect to see you a week early. I'm so in love & bursting with pride. It's a girl (sic)"

Ferne, who has the baby with her ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins - who is currently on trial over a nightclub acid attack - was said to have been planning to film her birth for her upcoming 90-minute TV special 'First Time Mum'.

A source said recently: "Ferne has got an all-female team on standby ready for the baby to make an appearance, made up of friends and birthing partners, midwives and an all lady TV crew at the ready. There are discussions, but it might not happen.

"If it happens, it'll be a warts and all show - nothing will be missed. But if The 'This Morning' showbiz presenter hasn't been seen on screens since she confirmed her pregnancy and spoke out about Arthur allegedly throwing acid at party revellers earlier this year."
