Billie Faiers' stepfather appears to have revealed the name of her newborn son. The 27-year-old former TOWIE star welcomed her baby boy, her second child with fiancé Greg Shepherd, earlier this month. But so far, both Billie and Greg have kept quiet on what they have called the new arrival. Now, Dave Chatty seems to have dropped a big hint in an Instagram post shared on Sunday.

Alongside a selfie, Dave wrote: "Wetting Arthur's head. Who's out?" While he didn't confirm he is referring to Billie's baby, Greg shared photos from the same night out, writing on social media: "Wetting [baby emoji] head." A spokesperson for Billie and Greg has insisted the couple have not yet named their son.

Alongside a collage of bouquets of flowers, she wrote: "Would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone for your kind messages. I appreciate it very much and of course to all my wonderful family and friends. I have been showered with beautiful flowers, gifts and cards… my mumma @suziewells123 best flower arrangers in town… lots of love xxx."

It's been an emotional time for Billie. The reality star was left heartbroken by the death of her great-grandmother last week, just a few days after the birth of her son. A spokesperson for Billie's sister Sam Faiers confirmed the sad news to Now magazine in a short statement. "We can confirm that Samantha's great grandmother passed away this morning," it read. "We ask that Samantha and her family are given privacy at this very sad time." Both sisters were close to their great grandmother and shared occasional photos of her on their Instagram accounts, including the moment she held Billie's daughter Nellie in her arms for the first time, back in 2014.
