Soap star Kellie Bright has revealed the name of her baby boy

Kellie Bright has named her third son Rudy Joy Stocker.

The 45-year-old actress – who plays Linda Carter on 'EastEnders' – gave birth to a baby boy on June 22, and she's now confirmed the name of her son.

Asked how she's doing after the arrival of her baby boy, Kellie – who also has Gene, four, and Freddy, nine, with Paul Stocker – said: "It’s a little bit of a blur because I’m so tired, but it’s been amazing.

"I’m trying to savour every bit as these first few weeks are so precious and this is definitely my last! I’m sure your body makes you forget how hard the first few weeks are and what that sleep deprivation is like.

"It’s like nothing else! We went to Cornwall a couple of weeks after he was born which was a bit crazy, but it was lovely having that time just the five of us so we could all get to know each other. We had him for the whole of the summer holidays which was lovely, but at the same time the other boys were home so it was quite full-on – maybe more so than I expected."

The soap star explained her thought process her son's name.

And she also revealed what name she would've used if she'd given birth to a girl instead.

She told OK! magazine: "Joy was my nana’s name and I said that whether we had a boy or a girl, I would really like the middle name to be Joy as she meant such a lot to me.

"We weren’t sold on Rudy until about a week before I had him, but it’s been on my boys’ list for a while and was definitely around when I had Gene.

"All the girls’ names I really like, my husband didn’t! If he’d been a girl he probably would have been Robyn Joy."
