Louisa Lytton and her fiancé Ben Bhanvra have introduced their adorable baby girl, Aura, in a stunning photoshoot with OK!.

The 32 year old gave birth to her and 30 year old Ben's first child on 30 August and has now revealed her gorgeous full name – Aura Olivia Bhanvra.

EastEnders star Louisa and model Ben have explained the reason for calling her the beautiful moniker, telling OK!: "Her middle name is Olivia as that was my nan's middle name."

Discussing the inspiration behind her name more, Louisa added: "People keep asking us where Aura came from but we don't really know. It was on our list.

"We just both loved the name and we don't know anyone else with it," she continued.

"We wanted something quite different but not really out there and something that will carry her through every stage of her life."

According to BabyNames.com, Aura is a primarily female name of Latin origin and means "glowing light".


Behind The Name goes into more detail, explaining that it is also derived from the Greek word for "breeze" and almost means "distinctive atmosphere or illumination."

The website goes on to state that the name is most popular in Spain, specifically the Catalonia region.

There is more information about Aura's middle name, Olivia.

BabyNames.com explains: "Olivia is primarily a female name of English origin that means Ancestor's Descendant.

"Olivia is a name with English origins. It was derived from the male name, Oliver, which is a derivation of the old Norse name, Áleifr. Contrary to popular belief, it is not related to olives or the olive tree."

Announcing the arrival of herself and her fiancé Ben's little one earlier this month, Louisa shared the first adorable snap with OK! and said the pair are "utterly overwhelmed with love".

Louisa exclusively told OK! of herself and Ben becoming parents to their new arrival: "And then there were three. Welcome to the world, we are utterly overwhelmed with love".

The cute picture saw Aura clutching onto her thumb while her hand rests in Ben's.
