Lottie Ryan has revealed her baby boy’s name after giving birth earlier this month.

The 35-year-old welcomed her first child with husband Fabio Aprile weeks before her due date and has just confirmed his name with a sweet Instagram post.

“Let the adventure begin,” she added.

Lottie, who is the daughter of the late broadcaster Gerry Ryan, announced her pregnancy back in February and was not due to give birth until August.

Her management agency, NK Management, announced earlier this month that Lottie had already welcomed her bundle of joy.

Revealing the news in a statement, they said: “NK Management is pleased to announce that Lottie Ryan has given birth to a baby boy prematurely at 33 weeks.

“Lottie and Fabio will now be spending time as a family and we ask that their privacy be respected at this time.”

Lottie had previously spoken of how she was prepared to give birth in August but admitted that she was having some “complications” with her pregnancy.

Speaking in an Instagram Q&A with her followers last month, the RTÉ 2fm presenter said: “Pregnancy is good and I am good, thank you.

“It hasn’t been that way the whole way through, we’ve had complications but thankfully myself and baby are very healthy and very well so I’m very lucky.”
