I was just wondering if they had their baby yet! Such great news. I think they are such a lovely couple – great actress and a fantastic band. Freddie is a cute name and I’m sure he is adorable.

Lovely news! Freddie is such a popular boys name in the UK now (names seem to go in cycles as I have several great uncles called Fred/Freddie, then the name dissapeared for 50 yrs and now it’s back again!)

I like the name Freddie, it’s cute, but Peter Payne? Sounds a little like Peter Pan to me.
