By On

Peter Andre has finally announced the name of his baby girl, with the star revealing today that he and fiancee Emily MacDonagh have decided to call their daughter Amelia.

The happy couple welcomed their little girl in January but up until now she's been known by her nickname 'Bista's sister', a reference to her older sis Princess who the family lovingly call Bista.

Today though, Pete announced to his Twitter followers that they have finally decided on a name:

"Ok FINALLY we have a name for our beaut of a baby girl. Ems, J , P and I have decided on Amelia :):):) So lovely fans, before you read it anywhere else, here it is. Love ya :)", the doting dad tweeted.

Peter previously admitted to Jonathan Ross that Amelia was in the running, along with a bunch of other names.

In a pre-recorded interview with the TV host for his chat show, which aired last week, Peter spoke about the new addition to the family and about the all important naming process.

He said: "We have four names. Maybe you can help me out actually. We had Rose. I love Rose because it’s English and beautiful", before asking Jonathan for his input and saying: "Amelia, beautiful name. Elizabeth. Alexandra. So these are the four names that we’ve been throwing around. I love them because they are English and they are beautiful.”

The new dad then went on to reveal that he and Emily started to call their baby girl Rose but soon changed their minds. He continued to comment:

"So then the baby came three weeks early. Then we looked at each other and I said, ‘We haven’t got a name,’ so we started calling her Rose, but she wasn’t a Rose. It didn’t click".

"So then we went backwards any forwards. Then three days ago she (Emily) throws another spanner in the works and says, ‘What about Poppy?’ Poppy is a nice name.

"Then she threw in Isabella and I thought that’s a nice name. So we’re sort of in a bit of a pickle here. I’ve got to consider, I’ve had two children, biological children, and this is her (Emily’s) first, so I want her to be happy."

Hinting at the name that he eventually gave his daughter, Peter said: "My favourite is Amelia. I love that name but I want her to be happy. I love that name."
