Petra Nemcova has finally unveiled the name of her newborn son.

The Czech model took to Instagram on Monday to share a picture of herself holding her baby boy in her arms, with the image featuring a rainbow in the background.

"We opened the space in our hearts for our little one to reveal his name to us... It was then, through a rare stormy day, that we heard you say your name to us for the first time through the sounds of thunder, shortly to see the clouds part and a rainbow appeared," Petra began, before announcing that she and husband Benjamin Larretche have called their son Bodhi.

The 40-year-old also told her followers that she had serious cravings for curry while she was pregnant and went on to explain the meaning behind the spiritual name they have chosen, which is derived from Buddhism.

"This is our prayer for you and what we feel you will bring to our world... Oh, sweet Bodhi, we see you, we hear you, we love you, and we will help guide and nourish your roots as strong as those of the Bodhi tree," she concluded.

Last month, Petra shared the news that she had given birth to her son almost six weeks early, telling her social media followers that Bodhi was in an incubator and had been moved "from one hospital to the next".

While she gave no further update on her son's health, her picture accompanying her spiritual post indicates that the tot is out of hospital and doing well.
