Aston Merrygold and his wife Sarah welcomed their third child into the world over the weekend.

On Instagram, the couple confirmed the birth of their beautiful baby girl.

They decided to call their baby girl Riley, which is swiftly becoming one of the most popular names for babies at the moment.

The name, which ranks at number 65 on the USA’s baby name list, is a perfect option for new parents because it’s a gender-neutral name.

Alongside a sweet video of their newborn, the proud parents wrote, “Hello world, my names Riley Skye Merrygold.”

Riley is a huge hit with new parents because it’s both a modern and versatile choice.

It’s not an overly-used name but it’s also a pretty popular one that many parents of both boys and girls are favouring recently.

According to The Bump, the name is of both English and Irish origin.

The sweet moniker also has a touching meaning behind it. According to The Bump, the name means ‘valiant and courageous’ making it the perfect name for your little one.

Aston and his wife Sarah confirmed they were expecting a baby girl last year.

They shared their baby news on Instagram in September.

The couple already have two sons- Grayson and Jax.
