Cute singer loves the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's choice of moniker

George Shelley is pleased to have the same first name as Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s baby.

The Union J hottie shared his happiness on Twitter last night after it was announced the Royal pair’s son would be called George Alexander Louis.

Awwww the Royal Baby is called George!,’ he posted from the boys’ joint account.

We are instantly friends! Yay! #RoyalBaby nawwwwww George X.’

A number of loyal JCats were understandably amused by the 19-year-old curly-haired singer’s cute comments. 

@UnionJworld who knew having the same name as a baby could excite you so much haha,’ one admirer said.

Another added: ‘@UnionJworld he’s not even a day old yet calm down give him a few years before you contact him.’
