Jimmy Carr has announced his son's name in a heartfelt interview about his role as a father.

The 49 year old comedian secretly welcomed his little boy with partner Karoline Copping, 46, two years ago.

The couple have opted for the unique name of Rockefeller, but what's the meaning of the name?

Well, it turns out the couple chose it for a special reason and we've taken a look…

Meaning of the baby name Rockefeller

On the site babynames.com, it's stated that Rockefeller is "a male name of American origin that means From Rockenfeld, Germany."

The site also specifies that it is a famous wealthy American surname, and that's actually why Jimmy and his wife Karoline chose it.

They were inspired by American businessman John D. Rockefeller when they decided to call their now-toddler Rockefeller.

John Davison Rockefeller Sr. is widely considered to be the wealthiest American of all time.

The 8 Out Of 10 Cats host also shared his son's name was partly as a result of his love for US funny-man Chris Rock too, whom he labelled the "greatest ever comedian".

The Rockefeller Centre in New York is a famous cultural landmark and attracts a huge amount of visitors.

"It could be a bit of a gear shift, because of the kind of comedy I do," Jimmy told Radio Times about his new lifestyle.

"But so far, I'm still telling the same jokes, I've got the same sense of humour.

"We'll see, because I'm sure I'm going to be writing a lot of material about him."

The star then joked his son might be "tax-deductible" as he referenced an investigation by The Times in June 2012 that brought to light his involvement in an alleged K2 tax avoidance scheme.

Speaking about that time, Jimmy explained to the publication that while people "thought it was water off a duck's back" to him, he insisted it "was really horrible" and he "had panic attacks".

The TV star confirmed he is now a father during his stand-up comedy show in London some weeks ago, where The Sun reported he had brought up his little boy during a joke about adoption.

"I had to tell my little boy he's adopted. I mean, he isn't, but the look on his face," the star quipped to a snickering audience.
