Lara Bingle’s mother Sharon, who appeared on her reality show Being Lara Bingle, has expressed her delight at the arrival of grandson Rocket Zot.

Sharon Bingle posted on Instagram a message dedicated to little Rocket.

“A little bit of heaven drifted down from above,” she wrote.

“A handful of happiness, a heart full of love.”

Bingle who is now based in Los Angeles with her partner, or rumoured husband, Sam Worthington.

She last week confirmed on Twitter that she had given birth to Rocket Zot.

The middle name Zot is in honour of her late father Graham, who passed away in 2008 from liver and pancreatic cancer.

Ever since she started dating Worthington, Bingle has been unusually media shy.

No baby photos of Zot have been released to the media.

Lara Bingle has hit back at critics who ridiculed her for giving her newborn son an unusual name.

Bingle has taken to Twitter and Facebook today to explain the choice of her son’s middle name “Zot”, saying it is a tribute to her late father.

“My son’s middle name IS a respectful nod to my late father, whose nickname was affectionately, Zot,” the 27-year-old said in one of her posts.

Her father Graham died after a long battle with cancer in 2008.

The comments were in response to Daily Telegraph columnist Annette Sharp’s article Lara Bingle doesn’t care a zot for baby name traditions published today, talking about why Bingle and her partner, Australian actor Sam Worthington, chose to call their son Rocket Zot.

In the article, Sharp writes: “Zot, online urban dictionaries tell us, means to ‘zap, destroy, kill’ and, in Ontario, Canada, is a term used to define a spitball thrown at a ceiling.”

Bingle took aim at Sharp in a number of tweets and on Facebook to defend why the celebrity couple chose that name.
