After giving birth on 15 May, blogger and new mom Aisha Baker revealed the name of her baby: Khalid Parnell.

The mom posted the meaning of the little one's name on Instagram yesterday: "We would like to introduce Khalid Parnell to you! Named after the great Khalid ibn Al Walid, a warrior in Islam, a revered Muslim and companion of the prophet (SAW)."

We looked up the Arabic name and found it means one who is "eternal" and "everlasting". What a beautiful and truly magnificent name for her beautiful baby boy.

She thanked everyone for their ongoing support and encouragement in her post, and also tweeted a little message to her hubby, cricketer Wayne Parnell:

It appears the new mom is absolutely loving motherhood, saying she's "such a proud member of the Mama Mafia" already. And she did, after all, already include "Khalid's Mom" in her bio.

Congratulations once again to the new parents!
