Danielle Lloyd has never made a secret of the fact that she's always wanted a daughter to add to her growing family and. on 12 November, her wish was granted.
The 37 year old – along with hubby Michael O'Neill – welcomed Autumn Rose to the world after she was induced due to struggles with extreme back pain.
Danielle had previously said that she was "gutted" about Stacey Solomon's decision to call her daughter Rose as it was at the top of her list.
However, in her exclusive photoshoot and interview with new!, the star reveals how she and Michael arrived at choosing the name Autumn Rose and unveils the special meaning behind the unique moniker.
When quizzed on what inspired their choice of name, Danielle explained: "I had a few names like Autumn and Meadow and I thought they were really cute.
"We didn’t decide straight away and I watched her change day by day. Michael really liked Rosie and I really liked Autumn. I liked both, but then people kept on sending me pictures of dogs called Rosie and I was like, 'Oh no, is this a sign?'"
She continued: "I just thought, the season is Autumn, she’s dark and tanned, she’s just so gorgeous she looks like an Autumn. And then we’ve got Rose in there also after Michael’s nan."

Danielle went on to explain that there was a lot of input from those around her, but she eventually resolved to make sure that the final decision was her's and Michael's alone.
She explained: "I know it’s different from the boys and not a traditional name, but it just suited her. There were so many people trying to get their two pence in, but I was like, 'We have to actually just decide ourselves, Michael. Otherwise we’re going to keep going around in circles."
In regards to how she's feeling postpartum, Danielle said: "I feel on top of the world – Autumn’s so amazing."
She continued: "She is literally like a doll. Even in the hospital when I had her all the midwives and doctors were coming in and were like, 'We’ve been told how amazing and beautiful she is.'"
Autumn joins Danielle's brood of four boys – Archie, 11, Harry, 10, and George, eight, from her previous marriage and four-year-old Ronnie (her first child with Michael).
Despite initially saying this was her last baby, Danielle admitted she thinks Autumn "might need a sister."
