Chloe Lewis’ baby name meaning explained as she announces son is called Beau Lewis Flasher

Chloe Lewis has confirmed the name of her son after welcoming her first child with boyfriend Danny Flasher last month.

The 28 year old waited four weeks before announcing the name of her bundle of joy, finally revealing his name is Beau Lewis Flasher.

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Chloe posted a gorgeous image of her newborn child to her one million Instagram followers as she made the big announcement.

She wrote alongside the stunning black and white shot: "Beau Lewis Flasher. You stole my heart".

Fans of the star were quick to dote on the tot as Chloe gave them their first glimpse of his cute face, with many also complimenting her for her "beautiful" choice of name — but what does it mean?

According to Oh! Baby, the name Beau is a 19th century coinage, which originated as a nickname for men's fashion designer George Brummell, who is credited for creating the modern man's suit and tie.

Beau is a French word for "the beautiful" derived from the Latin word "bellus", which menas "handsome, fine, agreeable, pretty."

The name is believed to have first been given as a formal moniker following the release of P.C. Wren's 1924 novel Beau Geste, which sees a man named Michael "Beau" Geste leaving England to join the French Foreign Legion.

By the mid-20th century, Beau had become more commonly used worldwide, and is currently most popular in Australia, where it is the 40th most used name for boys.

Other celebrities that have children named Beau include Spice Girls member Emma Bunton, singer Art Garfunkel, Wilson Phillips star Wendy Wilson, The Sopranos actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Beverly Hills, 90210 star Tori Spelling.

Chloe announced the arrival of her bundle of joy on Instagram on 13 October as she shared a photo of her newborn's tiny feet and wrote: "Earlier this week our baby boy arrived. We are completely besotted & so so in LOVE."

Chloe had exclusively revealed to OK! magazine that she was due in late September and said she hasn’t "over prepared" because her sister has three children so she "doesn’t think she needs to".

She was then asked if she was shocked to find out she was pregnant, to which she said: "No, but it was our first try.

She added: "We talked about having babies in December and by mid January I was pregnant. I told Danny on his birthday."

However, after finding out about her pregnancy, Chloe heartbreakingly discovered she had been pregnant with twins but had miscarried one.

Speaking about the traumatic event, Chloe who didn't know she was expecting twins in the early stages, said: "I found out I was pregnant and told Danny and my family.

"I got to eight weeks but hadn’t had a scan. But I started bleeding in the middle of the night; I went to the toilet and I thought the worst.

"Danny kept saying it was normal, he’s done loads of reading and said it was something about the baby nestling into the womb. But I said to him: 'Dan, this is a lot of blood.' So I thought I had miscarried."

Chloe added: "The next day I booked a scan with a private doctor, and she said: 'There’s baby number one and baby number two.' I was shocked.

"But then she said she could only see one of the embryos, so it was either behind the other or I had lost it. I told her about the bleeding and she said that I probably had lost it."

After having the devastating news confirmed that she had miscarried one of the identical twins – which is a condition called vanishing twin syndrome – Chloe said she grieved for "about three months."
