Perhaps it's her reality TV background, but Big Brother alum Krystal Hipwell has raised a few eyebrows with how she's choosing her newborn's name. 

The 34-year-old posted an Instagram story on Wednesday, asking followers to vote on either 'Husky' or 'Huska' for the baby, who she shares with her property developer husband Neil Hipwell.

"I would love to know what your thoughts are. As you know, we have been tossing up whether we go with Husky or Huska," she said in a video.

"Still undecided, so I would love to know what you guys think."

In an Instagram live Q&A in October, the former model admitted they were in two minds about the name, after initially deciding on Husky.

"'We keep going back and forth on the name and are still undecided," she revealed.

The ex-reality star was praised for her 'honest and raw' posts on social media throughout her pregnancy

"As much as I think pregnancy is beautiful and is such a blessing, I do think it's also important to keep it real and share the weird and sometimes not-so wonderful side of carrying a child!" she said in a post, saying in her previous pregnancies she felt a lot of 'unrealistic pressure'.

"No one seemed to be sharing these things on social media," she said, after posting photos of  her swollen feet, varicose veins, melasma, mouth tumours.

"Since sharing these images yesterday I've received an overwhelming response from women who are also experiencing these things and I personally find a sense of peace knowing that I am not alone!"

The pair also share two older children, Nakoda, two, and son Sunny, six.
