The Block stars Dale and Sophie Vine have welcomed a son and his name was inspired by a recent road trip in a camper van!


32-year-old Dale announced the arrival of Van Byron Vine via Instagram with a picture of his baby boy’s tiny feet.

“Early Christmas present for @sophie_vine and I! Van Byron Vine,” he wrote alongside the pic.

“Everyone’s great! #VBVine #NewLittleHoodRat #ThingsJustGotReal #BringYourGoldAndFrankincenseButLeaveTheMyrrh.”

Sophie also posted an image on her Instagram page: “Our beautiful baby boy Van Byron Vine was born last week and is absolute perfection,” the 26 year-old new mum wrote. 

Our beautiful baby boy Van Byron Vine was born last week and is absolute perfection ❤️


So did the unique name come from their recent camper van road trip, which included an long stop in Byron Bay? 

Road Trippin' with @vineyd - stopped in byron bay, but it's off further north tomorrow xx #roadtrip #byronbay #sunshine #whatsmyrighthanddoing


Or, with a moniker like VBVine, could their baby boy's name have been inspired by Dale's favourite beer?

After two and a half blocks someone finally settled thanks to our @quinnyworld moodd pram. #GettingSomePracticeIn #SpewedOnMeWhenITookTheirBottleCap #ThereThere #WhoSaysYouCantUseItUntilBubComes @sophie_vine
