The birth of Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale was announced on Twitter
We’ve had Apple, Blue Ivy, North West and Bear (Rocknroll) - and now Gwen Stefani has given her third child a name to rival the best of them.
Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale arrived into the world on Friday and quickly earned himself a place on the only-in-La-La-Land list of children’s names.

The 44-year-old singer has been married to Rossdale, 48, for 11 years. They have two other sons – Kingston James McGregor, 7, and Zuma Nesta Rock, 5.
Presumably there’s an explanation for those too…
