He also explained the reason behind her unusual name, adding: "Named after her grandparents - Mario & Teresita - their love will forever flow through her and protect her and all of my kids. Grandma is over the moon and so are her siblings! Mayte Amor waited until 41 weeks to make her fashionably late arrival. She's doing everything a newborn should do and doing it so well. She's a whole seven days advanced!"
