PHOTOS: Cornish Olympian names newborn son

Cornish Olympian Helen Glover has named her newborn son and shared more adorable photos.

The Penzance rower posted a cute shot holding little Logan outside Jubilee Pool.

Husband Steve Backshall also tweeted the picture, with the caption "first walk - he didn't walk alone".

Introducing Logan, James, David Backshall!

Helen has also shared photos from the hospital, not long after giving birth to little Logan.

Posting on Tuesday morning, she said she could not believe it had been a week!

And like any true Penzance girl, she was keen to share an ice-cream with her new little man.

Not to mention getting some air into his lungs and as Helen put it, "the smell of pasties on his skin"!

While the official name has a superhero feel about it (a few people tweeted references to Wolverine), Logan has had a cute, food-themed title for the last week!

We think we prefer Logan though!

Huge congratulations from everyone at Pirate FM and welcome to the world Logan!
