Oliver and wife have a new buddy

Jamie and Jools Oliver have become parents to a baby boy

Jamie Oliver and wife Jools have become parents to a boy - and have given their longed-for son the unusual name Buddy Bear Maurice Oliver.

The new addition, who was born naturally on Wednesday, is the couple's first boy after having three girls.

The pair announced the birth on Twitter with Jamie declaring: "It's a baby boy guys!!! We're all very happy, mum was amazing and both are well and happy."

A spokesman for the couple said: "The whole family is thrilled."

The couple's fourth child weighed in at 6lb 9oz.

They had been hoping for a boy after three girls, also with unusual names, Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo and Petal Blossom Rainbow.

The tot has been given the middle name Maurice in honour of Jools's late father, who died in 1997 after a stroke.

If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
