"Now, I am not one to talk about giving your child an alternative name when my kids are called Princess and Junior. However, a child’s name is a personal choice.

"Bambi is a cute little deer, at the end of the day. I just think, why not? It’s up to them.

"Everyone else can have their opinion but it’s irrelevant.

"Molly Mae and Tommy show me there are some great things about Love Island because they’ve stayed together and been hugely successful.

"All power to them. If they love the name Bambi, that’s all that matters."

Peter shares Junior and Princess with ex Katie Price, 44.

He is also dad to Amelia, nine, and Theo, six, who are from her marriage to Emily MacDonagh.

It comes after Kerry said that Molly and Tommy should "change the name" of their daughter to stop her getting "stick" at school.

Kerry is mum to Lilly-Sue, 20, and Molly Marie, 21, who she shares with Brian McFadden.

The star and ex Mark Croft are parents to Heidi, 15, and Maxwell, 14, and she's also mum to Dylan-Jorge, eight, who is from her previous relationship with George Kay.

Writing in her column in OK! Magazine, Kerry said she wasn't "a fan" of their Disney themed name choice.

"Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury announced the birth of their daughter last week," Kerry penned.

"It’s lovely news, but I must admit I’m not a fan of the name.

"I think Bambi Fury sounds a bit ridiculous. It reminds me of the Disney film where the mother gets shot!

"The poor kid might get some stick in school. If they haven't registered the name yet, maybe they should consider changing it."

Bambi, which was released by Disney in 1942, sees a baby deer named Bambi's journey into adulthood after its mother is cruelly shot by a human.
