Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson has announced the name of her son and also how to pronounce it, as Tom, Dick or Harry it is not.

Sharing a set of glorious pics from the hospital, Marnie revealed he's called Oax Rubi Johnson.

She later took to Instagram Stories to let fans know how to say his name, which is useful information to have - thanks, Marns.

While some fans are delighted about the name, with one commenting, "Another gorgeous boy😍😍😍😍😍 obsessed with the name!! Congratulations on your family of 4❤️❤️❤️", some were quick to point out that another Geordie Shore-related baby has the same name.

"I thought they would have picked an unusual name instead of copying someone else, not that it's not a nice name," said another fan.

The 'copying' refers to Lauren 'BFFs with Charlotte Crosby' Causer, who also has a son called Rox.

"I'd be raging if someone I knew well named their baby my baby's name," commented an Instagram fan.

While another decided to tell Marnie that her son's name apparently means "armpit" in Scotland...

Last week, Marnie Simpson posted the SWEETEST photo of her freshly hatched son.

The former Geordie Shore star shared a black and white photo of the tiny baby gripping her finger and did a small earthquake just happened or our ovaries beating a frenzied tattoo against our insides?

Marnie said the little boy, brother to Rox who was born in 2019, 'completes' her and former Union J star Casey's family.

She also shared a video, saying, "Baby boy is here safe and sound. Can't even explain how obsessed we are with him, he's just perfect."

She then hinted that her birth experience this time around was different to the 28-hour labour she went through with Rox, something she said she was "very grateful" for.

"I can't wait to share him with you," she went on. "But me and Casey have chosen to wait as we want to enjoy him ourselves for a little while."

Marnie's Geordie co-stars sent her sweet well wishes about her new arrival.

Her cousin and co-star Sophie Kasaei commented, "I love him already our beautiful boy ❤️."

Charlotte Crosby, who recently announced she's pregnant with her first child with her boyfriend Jake Ankers, wrote, "Woooooooooooooo."

Chloe Ferry went for the succinct, "Congratulations 😍".

The news comes hot on the heels of the announcement that Geordie Shore, the show that propelled Marnie to fame, has been axed after 11 years.

As one door closes, another one opens...

Casey announced the birth of the couple's first child in a similar fashion in November 2019.

He also posted a video on Instagram stories, which showed the then father-of-one cradling his first born.
