Jess, 26, told JD’s In the Duffle Bag podcast: “It wasn’t so much of a secret, people made more out of it.
While Dom, 28, said: “I think it was because they were expecting some kind of grand announcement when he was born, what his name was and stuff and I think we just weren’t really fussed.”
Discussing their decision to withhold their son’s name, Jess explained they wanted to remain in the “newborn bubble” and keep something between just them.
Last month Jess hit back after being shamed online for using her baby to plug a range of pills.
The reality starcame under fire for “selling the baby’s soul”.
Last month Jess Shears was criticised for posting a shot of her child with a bottle of pills she was promoting
She posted a picture – labelled “ad” to show it was a paid promotion – of her child with its hand on a bottle of Placenta Pills.
Jess shared the shot, showing the tot in a babygro with “You rock Mama” on the front. She added a fulsome endorsement of the product, saying: “I knew I had to give it a go.”
However, many fans objected, with one writing: “This and you is what is wrong with modern society…
“Why is the baby holding the bottle your advertising. Jeez.”
Another told her: “There is just too much wrong with this picture.”
She later confronted the critics, asking: “Why follow me then?”
Plenty of fans leapt to her defence, saying she has every right to use her baby in online promotions if she wishes to.
The Love Island stars met on the show in 2017
One insisted: “Everyone is entitled to their own life choices… makes me feel sick you must get something out of trolling celebs when they can OUT you and you can get serious trouble on you.”
Jess revealed she had given birth in October by sharing a snap of one of the tot’s tiny feet as they lay on a white sheet, writing: “Baby Lever.”
Dom then posted a photo of himself leaving hospital carrying the baby in a car seat. He wrote: “Baby we did it.”
