Jamie Oliver's delight as wife Jools gives birth to another son
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has revealed his surprise after wife Jools gave birth to the couple's second son, admitting he's "beyond happy" there's another boy in the family.
Jamie Oliver and wife Jools have become parents for the fifth time after welcoming a baby boy.
The celebrity chef announced the happy news on his Instagram page in the early hours of Monday morning (08Aug16), alongside a gorgeous snap of the newborn swaddled in a duck print blanket.
"And then this just happened guys !! IT'S A BABY BOY !!" Jamie wrote in the accompanying caption. "Everyone in the Oliver family is very surprised and beyond happy. He arrived safely, mum / @joolsoliver was really really amazing, unbelievably composed, natural birth and my two eldest Girls got to come in at the very end as the baby was born which was amazing to witness very very emotional."
The newborn joins brother Buddy Bear Maurice, five, and sisters Petal Blossom Rainbow, seven, Daisy Boo Pamela, 13, and Poppy Honey Rosie, 14.
Jamie, 41, added he and Jools have yet to choose a unique moniker for their new arrival, and revealed more details about the birth as he continued his delighted caption.
"8 lbs ( that's 16 packs of butter for you bakers out there) anyway were (sic) all hitting the hay it's been a long day big love... bless a little baby boy Woop Woop !!!!" he wrote. "And love to all you mums out there how amazing you are it blows my mind .... Big love jamie o p.s no baby names yet ......"
Jools also shared a gorgeous picture of herself breastfeeding their newborn on her own Instagram page, writing: "Little baby boy Oliver has arrived we are so very happy, blessed, grateful and totally in love all over again and so very proud of our two eldest daughters who cut the cord. Jamie was my hero (no name yet)!!! XXXX."
The Olivers met in 1993 and wed in 2000, and although they turned to in vitro fertilisation (IVF) to conceive their first child 14 years ago, all their other children were conceived naturally.
