Alongside the picture, she penned: "Lots of you have been asking what the bubbas name is. We have named him Jack Michael Weston.

"The middle name Michael after our dear friend Michael Sleggs who we lost last year. May the spirit of sluggs live on! @willwestonlandscape."

Michael died in July 2019 of heart failure at the age of just 33.
