Jaime King and her husband Kyle Newman have finally decided what to call their newborn son, after admitting choosing a moniker was a remarkably difficult task.

The 36-year-old Hart of Dixie actress welcomed her second child with husband Kyle Newman last week.

Jaime previously spoke about her and Kyle’s struggle to choose a moniker for their new addition, but the family has finally settled the matter of what to call their little boy.

​”Kyle​ ​and I named our second son ​Leo Thames Newman,” she noted in a statement released to “Our family couldn’t be happier welcoming ​​​​​another little angel into this world. Thank you for ​all of the support and well wishes.”

Apparently the name is very significant for the couple, who married in 2007.

The pair tied the knot at Greystone Park and Manor in Beverly Hills, a historic site which is replicated after English scenery.

“Jaime and Kyle were married by the River Thames and Leo means strong and powerful,” a source explained of how the wedding influenced their son’s name.

The couple, who are already parents to 21-month-old son James, debuted their second tot via Instagram on Monday July 20.

And Jaime recently confessed they have racked their brains on what to call their second tot.

“I know the first part [of the name],” Jaime told People. “We just have to decide on the second part. Names are never easy, you don’t want something to be too Hollywood and out there.

“I want my child to feel strong in life and in business and what they do, but it’s still romantic at the same time … It’s not easy, but I like classic and eclectic mixed together so it’s a bit of both of my worlds at the same time.”

Songstress Taylor Swift has been dubbed baby Leo’s godmother.
