Welcome to the world, Baby Donald!
Eccentric celebrity baby names are nothing new – heck, we all got used to the name North West much quicker than many would have imagined!
And while you can predict which famous folks can be counted on to give their offspring some truly unforgettable monikers (ahem, Kim and Kanye!), there are others who provide more of a shock when they choose unusual names.
One of these is Howard Donald, who has just become a father again with wife Katie Halil – and they’ve given their new son a sweet name…
Howard, 48, told the world of his son’s birth on Wednesday morning (22nd February), saying that he’d arrived the day before. He’d missed the gala night of bandmate Gary Barlow‘s play due to illustrator Katie going into labour.
He also took this opportunity to reveal his son’s name: Dougie Bear Donald.
‘Hello Dougie Bear Donald! He’s here and he’s beautiful! He arrived yesterday morning and we are over the Pluto. X’ the excited new parent wrote to his 173,000 followers.
And the fans didn’t hold back with their congratulations, showing their support with nearly 3,000 likes and responses.
Howard had a similarly positive response last January, when his wife Katie gave birth to son Bowie – named after rock legend David Bowie, who passed away mere days before his birth.
Howard and Katie married in January 2015; he has daughters Grace and Lola Donald from a previous relationship.
Congratulations to the Donald family!
