Martin has long been vocal about wanting to have a large family. In January 2018, Martin told E! News that he wanted four more pairs of twins.
“I would love to have a big family. Yes, I do want a big family, but there’s a lot going on at the moment with a lot of work, wedding, it’s a lot going on. So we’re going to put things in order first and then we’re going to get ready for many more kids,” Martin told E! News.
A few fans were just excited that the baby has a conventional name.
Finally a celebrity couple that doesn’t name their kid after a fruit, an animal or a direction
