Wayne Lineker's daughter Tia has welcomed her first child, a son with boyfriend Harry Agombar.

The model and influencer took to Instagram to share the happy news with her famous fans and followers, writing alongside and adorable photo of the newborn, "The best day of my life 🤍 30.11.21 my baby boy entered this world and became my world."

In a follow up post uploaded hours later, Tia introduced her sons name, writing, "Alba Agombar 🤍 my beautiful boy, perfect in every way. I have never known a love like it, I’m totally obsessed with him and enjoying our baby bubble. I’m a lucky mummy."

But what does the unusual moniker actually mean?

Alba is a unisex names and is actually the Gaelic word for 'Scotland', and could be a nod to some hitherto unreported Scottish ancestry.

Tia's famous friends and fans flooded the comments with well wishes, with one writing, "Omg the most beautiful name for such a beautiful boy!! 💙💙💙💙💙💙" and Molly-Mae Hague herself saying, "Congratulations Tia and Harry😩🤎💫 what a dream".

The reality star and club owner - who tricked us all into believing he was engaged to co-star Chloe Ferry back in February - may be unlucky in love but his previous relationships have resulted in four children.
