Vogue explained how they came to choose Otto's name: "I heard somebody else's child called Otto a couple of years ago and the name always stuck.

"I just loved it. I think Otto James together sounds really cool."

Vogue has been sharing photos and video clips of her sweet baby Otto with her Instagram fans, and this week the model posted a clip of Otto enjoying his first-ever swim in a pool with herself and older siblings Theodore and Gigi.

The little boy looked seriously adorable having his first dip as his brother and sister swam around him.

In a previous interview with HELLO!, proud dad Spencer revealed: "We feel very fortunate and really blessed - we couldn't ask for better kids."

"It's always been our intention to have a big family and we are very lucky that we have been able to do that."

Vogue also told us: "Otto slotted in straight away. The kids love him and we are obsessed with him. Theodore and Gigi love playing with each other and I think that Otto’s going to be another little member of their gang. It's really lovely to see."
