EastEnders' Hannah Spearritt reveals her baby's unusual name is "a bit of a mouthful!"

Their first choice was Spearas...

After suffering two tragic miscarriages, you can understand the overwhelming happiness Hannah Spearritt and her fiancé Adam Thomas feel over their newborn daughter.

And now they've shared that joy in an interview and photoshoot - as well as their baby's "mouthful" of a name - Téa Thomas-Spearritt.

Hannah - best known as part of nineties band S Club 7 - told OK! magazine: "To have my own little girl is incredible."

We tried to see if we could combine our names and we came up with 'Spearas'

The TV star explained how they came up with Téa, saying: "Her name is a bit of a mouthful. We tried to see if we could combine our names and we came up with 'Spearas', but it didn’t sound right! To find a name that you’re both passionate about is hard."

She said that Adam has been a hands-on dad, but adds: "The moment I see his batteries run out, I take over. We have to sleep in different rooms, not every night but most nights, so at least one of us gets a full night’s sleep."

Read the full story in this week's OK! Magazine, which is out today.

Hannah, who played Kandice Taylor in EastEnders, gave birth to Téa just before Christmas, releasing a statement that read: "Hannah has given birth to a beautiful baby girl at 5am this morning.

Hannah has spoken openly and honestly about the pain of her miscarriages, previously telling OK! magazine: "They both happened early on in the pregnancies, around the five-week mark. It's such an upsetting thing so it's made it hard to relax this time, especially during the first few months."

The singer-actress has been dating Adam, 38, on/off since 2013. They were initially together for two years, getting engaged, but split in 2015.
