She let slip, while speaking at an event recently: "I love everything about being a mum. My daughter's getting older now, she's three now and she's just absolutely amazing. She's a girly girl, and my little boy Rich is amazing. He's a lovely little boy. Being a mum is the best thing I've ever done and I love it."

Amy - who also has daughter Polly, who turns three in April, with ex Bradley Wright - had previously insisted she would not make her little boy's name public.

Her wish is to keep his life as private as possible.

She explained: "It was something when I was pregnant that we decided to do, and obviously I put Polly on social media, but with my little boy, we just decided not to.

"It is hard because sometimes I just want to show him off, but at the same time we did decide it."

I love everything about being a mum.

Amy and Rich's father, Ritchie, split last summer after a two-year relationship.

Speaking at the time of their break-up, sources close to the star said the pair were still "friends" and Ritchie would continue to play a "a big part" in his son’s life.

One source claimed: "They broke up on good terms and will remain friends. He's still a big part of her son's life and sees her regularly.
