Amy Childs has kept her son out of the spotlight since she gave birth to him and has never before spoken his name.
However, during a recent public event the 29 year old mum-of-two spilled the beans by accident.
Former TOWIE star Amy said: “I love everything about being a mum.”

She continued telling The Sun: “My daughter's getting older now she's three now and she's just absolutely amazing. She's a girly girl, and my little boy, Rich, is amazing. He's a lovely little boy.
“Being a mum is the best thing I've ever done and I love it."
Amy’s son is named after his father, Ritchie, whom Amy split from last summer after just two years together.
As well as little Rich, Amy also has daughter Polly who she shares with ex boyfriend Bradley Wright – but she decided long ago to not let Rich be in the limelight.
She said: “We decided to keep him out of the public eye.
“It was something when I was pregnant that we decided to do, and obviously I put Polly on social media, but with my little boy we just decided not to.

“It is hard because sometimes I just want to show him off, but at the same time we did decide it.”
Amy’s complicated relationship history has left her daughter Polly calling Amy’s dad “father” instead of her jailbird ex Bradley.
Amy and Bradley were together on and off for several years before calling it quits "for good" in 2017, just six weeks after she gave birth to her tot.
Speaking about her family dynamic, Amy explained: "I want a stable family unit.
"I'm not looking for someone to be my kids’ dads because they have dads but yes I'm looking for someone who will take them on as their own."
Amy, who recently said her breast implant flipped over and burst, has confessed it's a "hard" situation to be in as Polly's dad isn't in the picture, but her own parents Billy and Julie have been there for her every step of the way.

She said: "It is hard. Polly's dad is in prison. She doesn't see him. Polly calls my dad 'dad'," before adding that when they went on holiday as a family, there was some confusion about who her daughter's father was to outsiders.
The reality star said: "My dad is the only father figure Polly has known. I went to Turkey with my mum and dad and Polly kept calling me mum and my dad, 'dad'.
"It was so strange. Everyone kept thinking me and my dad were together. It was weird. But at the same time my dad is an amazing dad."
