Jools Oliver has revealed two of her children played midwife during the birth of her son by helping cut the umbilical cord after watching the delivery.

The model and her chef husband, Jamie Oliver, welcomed their fifth child over the weekend.

Sharing a picture of herself breastfeeding her son, Jools (41) added she was "proud" of her two eldest children, Poppy Honey Rosie (14) and Daisy Boo Pamela (13).

"Little baby boy Oliver has arrived and 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," she wrote to her 351,000 followers on Twitter.

Jamie, also 41, wrote on Facebook: "Jools 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," he wrote.

Married for 16 years, the couple also have a younger daughter called Petal Blossom Rainbow (7), and son Buddy Bear, born in 2010. The Naked Chef has hinted that, like his siblings, the new baby will have an unusual name, possibly linked to the seasons or "something floral or from the natural world".

Oliver earlier told fans his new son weighed 8lbs, or the same as "16 packs of butter".
