Speaking further about the inspiration for the name, he explained: ‘The first Helly we found was an old Norwegian sea captain, from a place in Norway called Moss, a tiny little town where my grandmother is from.’

The full interview is in Hello! magazine.

He went on to say that after they looked Helly up, they discovered that Helly was a ‘big bearded guy’ like himself, adding it was then the name ‘fell into place’.  

Kara gave birth to Helly via elective Caesarean following a four-day ordeal when welcoming eldest son Frey, which lead to an emergency C-section. 

Discussing her recent experience at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London, the Mr. Selfridge star described it as ‘strange’ as the hospital seemed ‘almost deserted.’ 

She added: ‘But we were both so aware that on the other side of the hospital it must have been pandemonium. It is amazing what they are all doing right now.’

Kara revealed the happy baby news to Hello! magazine earlier this month, saying: ‘Our second bundle of joy arrived on Friday 8th January at 9.46 am weighing 7.25 pounds.

‘Couldn’t be more excited to start 2021 with this incredibly cool little man joining our family. 

‘Thank you to the amazing team at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital for bringing him into the world safely.’ 

Kara confirmed back in October that she was six months pregnant with a baby boy, almost two years after she and partner Marius welcomed son Frey. 

Moniker: Meanwhile, Marius, who Kara went public with in 2017, explained that the name Helly is inspired by his native country Norway, adding that his son also has the middle names Juel and Parsell 

She said that she had really wanted a sibling for Frey and told the publication: ‘if it happens, it happens, let’s go with the flow. And it happened quicker than expected.

The actress had been due to star in a stage production of Steel Magnolias before COVID-19 restrictions prevented it going ahead. 

Kara and Marius had wished to tie the knot last year on a lawn by a beautiful fjord where his grandfather grew up.

However, their special day has been put on pause for the time being due to the pandemic and national lockdown. 

Kara said: ‘It keeps getting put on hold. But I like to do things when I’m in a place to enjoy it, so if you can’t do that now, then why rush?

‘It will be much nicer to get married in a celebratory way when we can enjoy it with family.’

Kara, who has a close relationship with her sister, actress Hannah Tointon, told how she is looking forward to seeing the bond her two sons will develop.
