EastEnders fans spot hidden tribute in name of Sharon Mitchell’s newborn baby

EastEnders' Karen Taylor took it upon herself to name her grandson – and viewers managed to spot a hidden tribute to the Watts family weaved in it.

Ever since Sharon Mitchell returned to Albert Square, things haven't been the same following her firstborn son's harrowing death.

In heartbreaking scenes last week, Dennis tragically drowned during the boat party despite Ian Beale trying to save him.

Sharon has been struggling to get on with her life and hasn't yet named her baby.

When she dropped off the baby with Karen, the laundrette manager was keen to give the baby a name.

While naming Keegan, she couldn't decide between his current name or Kayden, so gave the latter as his middle name.

Karen suggested to Sharon that her baby looked like a Kayden, saying: "What do you think about the name for Kayden?"

Sharon nodded, but fans quickly turned detective as they noticed what appeared to be a hidden meaning in the name.

One tweeted: "So Sharon's baby will be called Kayden so it still has Den in its name then #EastEnders."

While another commented: "Why do I feel the reason @bbceastenders has gone for the name Kayden for Sharon's baby is because of the DEN at the end… Coincidence? I feel not! #EastEnders."

A third remarked: "It seems they've called the baby Kayden. KayDEN. Get it? Because his dad (possibly) is Keanu and his brother, dad and Grandad were called Dennis."

"So Kaden it is, I wondered if she’d get a little Den in somewhere #EastEnders wonder if she’ll go back to being Sharon Watts now, and the baby will be Kaden Watts," another wrote.

One wrote: "Laughing at KayDEN. Took me too long to get that one."
