Jimmy Carr reveals son’s very unusual name two years after his birth – and it's a nod to someone famous

JIMMY Carr has shared his son's very unusual name – two years after his birth.

The 48-year-old comic only confirmed last month that he and partner Karoline Copping, 46, had become parents in 2019.

And now he has shared even more information about his little boy – including the moniker inspired by American tycoon John D. Rockefeller, and a "hint of Chris Rock".

The star and Karoline called their son Rockefeller, with Jimmy joking to the Radio Times: "I'm sure I'm going to be writing a lot of material about him. In fact, I think he might be tax-deductible."

The quip is in reference Jimmy being accused of involvement in an alleged K2 tax avoidance scheme by The Times back in 2012.

He recently made gags about fatherhood during his stand-up comedy show at the O2 Academy, Brixton.

We revealed at the time that he'd joked: "I had to tell my little boy he's adopted. I mean, he isn't, but the look on his face. I said: 'No, no, no, you were adopted, the new family is picking you up tomorrow'."

Jimmy also teased: "We're having a gender-reveal party for our kid but we're going to wait until he's 21 just to be sure. With some babies you can't tell, is it a boy or an ugly girl."

He had been pictured pushing a pram close to his North London home in March 2020, but did not speak publicly about being a dad until his comedy performance.

Jimmy met Channel 5 commissioning editor Karoline at an audition in 2001, and he was instantly smitten.

He previously gushed: "I knew, it felt perfect."
