Rachel Stevens Has Named Her Baby Girl! What Do You Think Of Her Choice?

Singer Rachel Stevens has announced the name of her baby girl, a week after giving birth.

The former S Club 7 star revealed that she and partner Alex Bourne have chosen the name Minnie Blossom Bourne for their newborn daughter, who was born on April 1st weighing seven pounds and seven ounces.

To celebrate the return home of their little girl, Rachel announced on her website, ‘Introducing Miss Minnie Blossom Bourne. The pitter-patter of (tiny) feet all 8 of them! Bursting with love xx.’

She also released a photo of the whole family’s feet lined up in bed, with little Minnie cocooned between her mum and older sister, Amelia, who is three.


When Minnie was born last week, her proud dad took to Twitter to update the couple’s followers.

‘Delighted to announce the safe arrival of our gorgeous little girl! @MsRachelStevens and baby both really well. Amelie happy and ‘cited,’ he tweeted.

‘We’re so happy that baby has arrived safely. Within minutes of meeting her we were totally smitten. Amelie is happy and ‘cited to have a little sister to play with and we can’t wait to introduce her to the whole family.’

While Minnie is quite an unusual name, it's not as out-there as these unique celebrity baby names.
