Kate Hudson and her Muse fiancé Matt Bellamy have decided upon a name for their newborn son.

"So happy!" musician Matt tweeted on Thursday. "Just had a baby boy Bingham 'Bing' Hawn Bellamy.

"Born 7lb 12oz on 9th July."

"Mum and baby are strong and healthy. Mum was a warrior. Bing popped out after 4.5 hours of intense pushing."

Of his son's chosen name, the 33-year-old added: "For those wondering, Bingham is my mum's maiden name and Bing Russell was Kurt's dad.

"Family connections all round."

Baby Bing is a little brother to seven-year-old Ryder Russell, Kate's son from her marriage to Chris Robinson.
