Former Geordie Shore star Gaz Beadle and his girlfriend Emma McVey have announced the name of their baby boy.

He wrote:

"Chester Raymond Beadle McVey.

"Chester not really sure why it kind of just came to us and we loved it... Raymond after my grandad of course... and a nice double barrel surname until we are married..."

Emma later shared her own announcement, as she paid tribute to her "little man".

She wrote:

"Chester Raymond Beadle-McVey.

"My world,  we’ve forgotten what sleep is, had exploding poops, pee flying in the air, sick down everything I’ve worn and you still make me smile constantly. love you forever little man"

He said at the time:

"WOW what a feeling no words can describe it meet our son  he is perfect in every way and healthy weighing 6lbs 2 @Emma_mcvey_ is fine and did amazing... I am a dad can’t believe it... I cried I smiled I panicked but I will be there for him no matter what  xxx"
