FRANKIE Cocozza has given his newborn son a rather familiar name, calling him… Frankie Cocozza.
The 26-year-old singer is continuing a family tradition of calling their children Frankie – with the X Factor star named after both his dad and grandfather.
He shared a picture of the newborn sleeping online writing: “Frankie the fourth x.”
The star revealed yesterday that he had become a father for the first time, sharing a post explaining his wife Bianca has given birth to a little boy.
Posting the happy news from Australia – where he and Bianca now live – he wrote: “You’re in for one hell of a ride son.
“You’ll be absolutely fine because you’re half your mother.”

Fans were quick to congratulate the pair – though many insisted the news made them feel their age.
One wrote: “You know you’re old when Frankie Cocozza has got a kid! Congrats .”
Another tweeted: “Aw I honestly couldn’t be happier for Frankie Cocozza, not only has he moved to Australia, he is married and has the most beautiful baby boy .”
A third bluntly insisted: “Frankie Cocozza is officially a DILF.”

Former Celebs Go Dating star Frankie revealed in October that he and Bianca were having a baby, just five months after getting married.
He shared a collage of pictures of their son’s ultrasound scan writing simply: “Ecstatic.”
Frankie was one of the big stars of The X Factor in 2011, but was removed from the show after he boasted about cocaine-fuelled sex sessions.
The wild-child, who was 18 at the time, was heard by production staff bragging about his Saturday night romp with a blonde fan.
