Shelby Tribble and Sam Mucklow welcomed their baby boy into the world on 15 November and revealed the sweet moniker they had given him a few days later.

The former TOWIE star had a difficult birth as she was in hospital for five days beforehand, and then was readmitted after their son was born suffering with pre-eclampsia.

But the family have been able to enjoy the first few days of their son's life, and shared they had named him Abel Ashley, which has some religious connotations.

Abel was the second son of Adam and Eve in the Old Testament and was murdered by his jealous brother Cain.

It's a Hebrew name which literally means "a breath", and also has positive connotations according to Nameberry that Abel is "capable, competent, ready and willing".

The traditional name isn't that common for a boy's name as it hasn't ever reached the top of any popularity lists, only seeing a slight peak in 2015.

Posting to Instagram Shelby, 27, shared two sweet snaps of her son, which she captioned: "Meet Abel Ashley Mucklow. Born 15.11.20 Weighing 7.3lb Our perfect baby boy".

Sam had announced on Instagram that Shelby had given birth to their son in a lengthy post on his Instagram stories on Tuesday evening, calling her an "absolute soldier".

After giving birth Shelby was taken back into hospital and she shared an update later on thanking everyone for their sweet messages wishing her well.

"It's so difficult for me to respond to everyone individually, it would take me too long to reply to you all. But just know I've read [them] and I am grateful for every single message sent to me.

"I'm not having an easy ride and still have to be monitored daily and I'm taking so many different medications and vitamins I could probably open my own pharmacy.


"I'm rattling as I walk. But I've got all the best family and professionals around me, to look after me to get me back to full health."

Responding to her fans and followers who are keen to see her and boyfriend Sam Mucklow's new addition, Shelby said: "Baby boy is doing really well, we will reveal him to you soon (he doesn't even realise how in demand he is haha, can't wait to tell him when he's older)."
