The X Factor's Louis Walsh thrilled as Kate and Wills call new Royal baby Louis

The X Factor star spoke exclusively to The Sun Online about their choice of moniker and made a glowing prediction about his future career.

William and Kate confirmed their newborn son was called Louis Arthur Charles in a statement today.

Talking to us shortly after the news broke, Louis proudly said: “He looks like a pop star, he sounds like a pop star and, with a name like Louis, he’s definitely going to be a royal pop star!”

Seeing as the tot is fifth in line to the throne, anything could happen…

Former One Direction star Louis Tomlinson also showed his appreciation for the name and tweeted: “Young Louis welcome to the world. I’ll take you under my wing lad. The Adidas tracksuit is in the post!”

As well as a nod to the Irish music mogul, Kate and Wills are thought to have chosen the name as a tribute to Prince Phillip’s beloved uncle Louis Mountbatten.

The tot will officially be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland – though it's possible he'll be called Louis for short.

The newborn shares the name Louis with his brother George, and dad William, who both have the middle name Louis.

Prince William appeared to give an early hint about the name they were considering on the steps of the Lindo Wing on Monday with Kate.

Standing with his wife and newborn son, William said: “There's Arthur, there he is,” as he pointed to legendary Sun photographer Arthur Edwards.

The Duke and Duchess now have three children under the age of five – something William jokingly said was giving them: “Thrice the worry”.

Prince William Prince George, four, and two-year-old Princess Charlotte, were “delighted” with their new baby brother.

The name revelation comes after four days of packed royal engagements, during which Harry asked William to be his best man at his wedding with Meghan Markle next month.
