Emilie Cunliffe, 22, welcomed her gorgeous son with boyfriend Mikey Hoszowskyj on 3 May.
The couple have now exclusively revealed to OK! magazine that they have touchingly chosen to call their son, who weighed 7lb 2oz, Teddy Archie David Hoszowskyj.
In a gorgeous tribute, the name Archie is after Kym’s late son who was born 18 weeks premature in 2009, and tragically died minutes after he was born.
Emilie said: “His full name is Teddy Archie David Hoszowskyj. Archie after my late brother, and David after my brother, dad and grandfather.”
She revealed: “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.’

“I wanted to say thank you, so Mikey and I cooked her a meal, bought her flowers and then gave her the keyring.
Kym, who plays Michelle Conner on Corrie, revealed that she is very moved by the inclusion of the name, saying: “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.

“When I found out his name, I burst into floods of tears.”
The 43 year old star continued: “But now Archie lives on in Teddy’s name. Having a baby boy in the house with Archie’s name as part of his means the world to me."
Emilie added: “Teddy’s birth certificate means a lot to Mum too as Archie never had one, nor did he have a death certificate, so there are no official records of his existence.”
