After announced they had welcomed their second son into the world earlier this week, Marnie Simpson and Casey Johnson have revealed their newborn’s unusual name – and it’s gone fans debating just how you pronounce it
Marnie Simpson ‘s newborn son’s name has been revealed, and it’s left fans debated how you pronounce the unique moniker.
The Geordie Shore star, 30, announced to her fans on Wednesday that she had given birth to a baby boy – telling her Instagram followers her family with fiancé Casey Johnson, 26, is now “complete”.
Marnie and the former Union J singer are already parents to two-year-old son Rox, and have previously stated they don’t plan to welcome any more children into the world together.
Taking to Instagram on Friday, dad-of-two Casey paid tribute to his new bundle of joy and shared the baby’s name with fans – Oax Rubi Johnson.
“Welcome to the world my boy,” the singer captioned a sweet snap of him kissing his son. “Oax Rubi Johnson. 6.13 pounds. Born at 11:30am. 16.05.22.”
He added: “Our beautiful boy you have completed our family.”
Fans and celebrity pals were quick to comment on the adorable update – with some debating how you pronounce the newborn child’s name.
“How do you say it? Like Oaks? Or Ox?” one fan mused in the comments, with another suggesting: “I believe it’s pronounced like oaks.”
A third wrote: “Surely it must be Oaks because if it was Ox it would just be the same name again with out the R? I assume it’s ‘Oaks’.”
Casey and Marnie are yet to let their followers know the correct pronunciation, as they continue to enjoy a few more days in their baby bubble.
Taking to her Instagram Stories after announcing Oax’s arrival, Marnie told her fans: “I can’t even explain how obsessed we are with him. He is just perfect.
“What a different experience that was compared to the birth of Rox, which I’m very grateful for. I can’t wait to show him to you all but I feel like me and Casey have chosen to just wait a little bit because we just want to enjoy him ourselves for a little while.”
Earlier this year, Marnie spoke of her regret over finding out Oax’s gender prior to giving birth.
The reality TV star confessed in February she wishes she had waited until the birth, as it was probably going to be the ‘last time’ she was pregnant.
Speaking while pregnant at the time, Marnie admitted she wasn’t shocked by the news she was carrying a son again, as a psychic predicted she would be giving two-year-old son Rox a little brother.
Speaking in a joint interview with fiancé, the then-pregnant star was quizzed about whether she always wanted to find out the gender of her unborn baby, prior to giving birth.
“At the time, I really wanted to know what we were having, but now, I feel like I wish we’d waited because it will be our last time,” Marnie confessed to OK! magazine before welcoming Oax into the world.
“It feels like we’ve missed out on our chance to have the big surprise at the end. So that’s a bummer, but I feel like we’re very impatient people, so we probably did the right thing for us.”
