'Welcome to the family Citizen Sage Alexander-Johnston,' she wrote on Instagram.
'You are 10 days old... Sorry this naming business has taken so long! We had a bit of a curve ball when we announced your name to our family, as someone pointed out, it's possibly illegal to name you that in Australia.'
Claire also revealed the name Citizen 'falls loosely under the category of "title" like "King", "Duke", "Lord" or "Captain".'
'We tried to change it. "Disco" even came back into play! But nothing else felt right for you as a Libra, with a [very sensible and grounded] Capricorn moon,' she said.
'So Citizen you are, and always will be - a Citizen of the world.'
Johnston's eldest three children are called Atlas, Everest and Zephyr.
