LATEST: After Colin Farrell's jokes about naming his soon-to-be-born son FOKKER, pals have hurriedly reassured fans he plans to call the child James.

The DAREDEVIL star jokingly announced his intention to name his son with model KIM BORDENAVE after the Irish-pronounced version of the F-word obscenity to American TV host CONAN O'BRIEN this week (ends08AUG03).

But friends say he will actually name his offspring - due to be born in September (03) - after his grandfather, and is already referring to the upcoming arrival as JIMMY.

Farrell, 27, will miss the birth of his first child as he'll be in Morocco filming the anticipated Oliver Stone movie Alexander.
