Ferne McCann reveals the unusual inspiration behind daughter Sunday's name

The new mum has admitted she’s now struggling over the middle name

Ferne McCann has revealed that inspiration for her daughter's name, Sunday, came from her favourite facial cleanser.

The TOWIE star has explained how she came up with her daughter's unusual moniker long before she was born, following a chat with her make-up artist.

Talking to OK! magazine the 27-year-old said: 'I decided Sunday would be my girl's name really early on in my pregnancy.

'It came to me after my make-up artist recommended a cleanser to me by a brand called Sunday Riley.

'I thought it had a really nice ring to it and the more I thought about it, the more I loved it. I wanted something unique but not too weird.'

She added: 'I know that not everyone is going to love it but I've had a great response from people so far.'

The new mum gave birth to her firstborn at the beginning of November, announcing her early arrival on her Instagram account - the baby girl surprised her mum a week early.

And while Ferne is feeling confident about her baby's first name, she's now stumbling over what to give her as a middle name following a negative response from a friend.

She explained: 'I felt quite certain that her middle name would be Sky, but then I told a friend who didn't like it and now I'm not sure.'

The new mum added that she definitely wants her middle name to be one syllable and to begin with an S, 'because I like the alliteration.'

During the interview with OK!, Ferne also confirmed that Sunday's dad Arthur Collins will not be part of their lives following his guilty verdict for an acid attack that took place at an East London club on Easter weekend.
