Kym Marsh became a grandmother for the first time last month.

Earlier this week, the Coronation Street actress and her daughter Emilie Cunliffe posed with the tot for OK! Magazine and revealed his adorable name.

Kym said she "burst into tears" when Emilie told her her grandson's full name.

The 43-year-old actress and her ex-husband Jamie Lomas' son Archie tragically died minutes after he was born 18 weeks premature in 2009, so the actress was overwhelmed when she was told her grandson's name.

Emilie told the publication: "His full name is Teddy Archie David Hoszowskyj. Archie after my late brother, and David after my brother, dad and grandfather.

"When I found out I was having a boy I knew I wanted the name Archie to feature, but I wanted it to be a surprise for Mum. After he was born, we bought Mum a keyring with a picture of Teddy in it and engraved it with the message: 'Dear Loli, thank you for everything. Love, Teddy Archie David Hoszowskyj."

Emilie said she and Mikey wanted to thank her mum, so they "cooked her a meal, bought her flowers and then gave her the keyring".

Kym added: "I didn't think they would, and nor should they have felt they had to. As far as I knew, he was going to be called Teddy David and I was chuffed with the name David being in there."

And the former pop star admitted the touching tribute "means the world" to her.

She added in an interview with OK! magazine that Archie now "lives on in Teddy's name" and thinks "having a baby boy in the house with Archie's name as part of his means the world to me".
