Speaking to HELLO! in an exclusive interview back in January, she revealed that the newborn's middle name had a special meaning for her family.

Helen said: "We were always going to have Kate as a middle name after my cousin, who sadly passed away when we were in our 20s. I was really close to her; she was a scientist and crazy cool."

Her sons also loved the little girl's first name for a very special reason.

"The boys loved the name Elsie as it has an E and an L at the beginning," Helen revealed. "Mind you, if the baby had been a boy, Louis wanted to call it Wolverine. We said: 'Okay, we'll put it on the list!'"

Helen and Richie announced their split in April earlier this year and the sportsman is now expecting his fourth child with girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill.
