Celebrity Families

Brendan Fevola just trolled us all with his daughter's name, but the real one is adorable

Oh Fev, you jokester.

Our hearts exploded with joy when Brendan Fevola and his fiance Alex welcomed their fourth daughter into the world yesterday. But one bit of news left us scratching our heads in confusion.

When his radio co-hosts Fifi Box and Byron Cooke asked if they had named their bundle of joy, the 2015 I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here winner told them that they'd decided on Brenda after him.

"If we'd had a boy it would have been called Brendan," Fev told his on-air team yesterday.

But turns out, Fev was pranking us all along and while we're fans of Brenda, the baby's real name is pretty cute.

The retired AFL champ, 37, has revealed that his youngest daughter's name is Tobi, confirming the news on air with Fifi and Byron and on Instagram with a sweet picture of the newborn wrapped in a pink blanket asleep on her dad's chest.

It's clear little Tobi has bewitched both her parents and her older sisters with the whole family sharing adorable snaps on social media.

Both parents shared the same picture of daughters Mia, 18, Leni, 12, and Lulu, eight holding baby Tobi.

"When 3 became 4 our Family is complete @mia.fev @lenifevola lulu #girls #daughters #family #love ❤️," Fev captioned his snap while proud mum Alex, 41, wrote, "Feeling so blessed ❤️."

Little Tobi was born on November 28 via c-section at around 8am local time and mum Alex was "amazing" according to Fev.

The former AFL player wrote a sweet tribute to his bride-to-be on Instagram saying, "Didn't think my life could get any better @alexfevolamakeup you are amazing. I love you more than words can say. Me and our 4 daughters are very lucky people to have you as our General ❤️"

We're not crying, you're crying.

Eldest daughter Mia posted a series of snaps to Instagram including one of herself holding baby Tobi and also praised her mum for her incredible effort during the birth.

"Welcome to the world sis 👶🏼🌸 you are the most perfect little monkey imaginable and so incredibly loved already ❤️ @alexfevolamakeup you are my biggest inspiration and we're so proud of you 💕 heart is so beyond full right now🤗" she captioned the photos.

Mia, 18, is Alex's daughter from a previous relationship and Brendan's stepdaughter.

Second-eldest Leni also shared a sweet picture of her and her new baby sister saying, "Words can't explain how much I already love her❤️🥰"

Following the news of the birth, Fev dialled into his breakfast radio show to share his happy news and trick his co-stars with the name.

"She has a huge head of hair. You should see how much hair she's got, it's amazing," Fev gushed on the phone to his co-hosts yesterday.

"She looks like me a bit, wish she had got Alex's genes but she's super cute. She's a little mini me with her fat cheeks!"
