Jake revealed he was even trolled for naming his baby boy after his late brother, Oliver.

He said: “For me, Oliver was my best mate and I’ll always go on about him because the more I talk about Oliver his memory lives on.

“That’s what we wanted to do with Leo.

“I feel with a lot of people when they’ve had a child, they name them after their grandparents or parents that they might have lost.

“It’s a natural thing to do but these trolls thought it was me trying to get attention.”

He added: “I think we give trolls, I do especially, too much of a spotlight.

“I’m just going to try and stop doing that.”

What else did Jake say?

Jake concluded: “I don’t understand why somebody would hate on, not only a newborn baby but also somebody they’ve never met.

“It just doesn’t make sense to me. It is really upsetting but we’ve tried to not let it tarnish the moment because I haven’t stopped smiling.

“My face is killing me.”

Meanwhile, viewers gushed over Jake, Sophie and little Leo on Twitter.

One person said: “What a beautiful baby and a lovely family. Jake is brimming with pride it’s wonderful to see.”
