After spending a week deliberating on their baby boy's name, Helen Glover and Steve Backshall have chosen the most adorable moniker. The Olympic rower, who gave birth last week, took to Twitter to reveal: "Finally decided on a name! Introducing Logan James David Backshall. Thanks everyone for your lovely messages."

Helen, 32, was pictured cradling her one-week-old son to her chest as he slept soundly. Wildlife presenter Steve, 45, shared a similar photo, writing: "Logan James David Backshall on his first walk (he didn't walk alone)."

The couple also took a trip to the Royal Mail post box in Penzance, Cornwall, which was painted gold in honour of Helen's Olympic win at London 2012. Sharing a photo of herself holding baby Logan up to the post box, Helen tweeted: "6 years ago today #heatherstanning and I won the first @teamgb gold of #London2012. Tonight I'll be exchanging national anthems for nappy changes... and I wouldn't have it any other way! Logan's first trip to the gold post box to celebrate."
