She added: "Cassius Watts Thoreau Kennedy, born the 30th of Aug at 1:28pm.

"We named him Cassius for the great Muhammad Ali, who sacrificed millions, relinquished his titles, and went to prison, rather than participating in an unjust war.

"Thoreau, for Henry David Thoreau, who chose jail over the support of slavery.

"And Watts, for Alan Watts, lifelong student, and teacher of nonviolence, who plays his own role in our love story."

She added: "All in all, this baby better learn to read fast!"

Amaryllis has a daughter Zoe from her previous marriage.
