Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo reveal son's name
Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo have revealed their newborn son is named Stefano Ercole Carlo.
The 29-year-old royal and the daughter of Countess Donna Paola Marzotto had their first child together last month, and have now confirmed to HOLLA! magazine that they've given him a moniker in tribute to Pierre's late father, Stefano - who died in 1990 following a sailing accident - and is his mother Caroline, the Princess of Hanover's former husband.
The little tot - who was born on February 28 - has been given the full name of Stefano Ercole Carlo.
Ercole stands for Hercules in Italian and Carlo comes from Beatrice's side of the family, it is after her father Don Carlo Ferdinando Borromeo.
It was confirmed back in November that the couple were expecting their first child together.
The 31-year-old beauty was seen at the Copa del Rey Mapfre Sailing Cup awards ceremony sporting a bonny bump.
Their new arrival comes just over a year after the pair held a civil ceremony in July 2015, before jetting off to Italy for a religious wedding on the Borromean Islands in the August.
In March last year, Beatrice opened up about wanting to have a big family, but said she was prioritising securing a stable job first.
She said: "I come from a big family, and I want children of my own. But at the moment I'm thinking about putting my career in a place where it wouldn't get threatened by the presence of children."
Their little bundle of joy is the fourth grandchild for Princess Caroline.
The tot's cousins will be Sacha and India, the son and daughter of Andrea Casiraghi and his wife Tatiana Santo Domingo and Caroline's daughter Charlotte Casiraghi's son Raphaël, whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Gad Elmaleh.
