Kara shared: “We found it had both Indian history and Scandinavian links.”

Marius added: “The first Helly we found was an old Norwegian sea captain, from a place in Norway called Moss, a tiny little town where my grandmother is from. We looked him up and he was a big, bearded guy like myself and it sort of fell into place.”

They also shared their son’s middle names, including Juel, which is “a Norwegian name that sounds like Yule, as he is the perfect after-Christmas gift to us” and Parsell – the maiden name of Kara’s mum who sadly passed away in 2019.

Kara have birth in Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and said: “It was so strange as it seemed almost deserted, but we were both so aware that on the other side of the hospital it must have been pandemonium.

“It is amazing what they are all doing right now.”

Of becoming a mum of two, the star added “You start by thinking, ‘How am I going to do this?’ But having two feels strangely easier, although I don’t know if I’m talking too soon.”

When announcing his birth earlier this month, Kara described the new baby as “incredibly cool”.

And the actress – whose sister is Inbetweeners star Hannah Tointon – had said she was looking forward to welcoming another baby boy into the world, despite joking she will be “outnumbered”.

She said: “Hannah and I have such a close bond, so now I am thinking how lovely for Frey to have a brother. I’ll be outnumbered with Marius and two boys but bring it on.”
