"She's the most beautiful thing you could ever think of," he said. "I'm proud to be a dad, and I'm going to make sure she knows she's loved, and that's all I can do."

Given that both Ashlee and Evan come from musical backgrounds, their choice of name might well have been inspired by Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. Evan had previously promised that the name would be "unique", adding: "You guys will figure out the story behind it once we tell the name."

A source confirmed to E! News: "The couple had their mind set on this name for a long time. They wanted something fun and different."

Little Jagger Snow is Ashlee's second child; she has a six-year-old son Bronx with her ex-husband, Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz.
