Tessa James' baby name has been revealed... and it's very Kardashian-inspired

Kimye would certainly approve!

They welcomed their first child several months ago but so far, actress Tessa James and NRL player Nate Myles have remained tight-lipped on sharing their son's name.

Until now!

According to The Sunday Telegraph, the Aussie couple have taken inspiration from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West by calling their bub Saynt Myles.

The quirky moniker has reportedly been spelt with a "y" instead if am "i" so they can register their son with NSW Births Deaths and Marriages.

In 2016, the Australian government cracked down on out-of-the-box titles and banned names that are misleading, impractical, obscene, or offensive.

According to the updated law, names are forbidden to make reference to titles or ranks within in the community, or public offices or institutions.

While "Saint" is banned, "Saynt" has provided a sneaky loophole for Tessa and James, who tied the knot in 2011.

Of course, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were the first adopters of the holy name, announcing in December 2015 they had decided to call their second child Saint West.

Kim and her family's strong Christian faith has been well-documented on Keeping Up With The Kardashians and in 2015, she and Kanye made the pilgrimage to Jerusalem to baptise their daughter, North West.

Tessa's agent confirmed she was five months pregnant in August last year.

Despite keeping a pretty low-profile during her pregnancy, Tessa stunned on the December cover of Elle.

"Being pregnant is a miracle because growing a baby, it's pretty incredible when you think about it. When you haven't had children and you see mums and kids everywhere you just think that's normal. But when it happens to you, you're like, 'Oh my gosh, all these women have done this? Wow," she told the glossy.

After overcoming her battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma the couple, who are now based in LA as Tessa works on her acting career, couldn't be more excited to become parents.
