The chef has been keeping fans up to date with his newborn's adorable antics!

The Oliver family have loved sharing glimpses into their new life with baby number five on social media, and it looks like little River is settling in just fine!

River Rocket Oliver was born in August this year. Jamie and Jools already have four other children named Poppy Honey Rose, Daisy Boo Pamela, Buddy Bear Maurice and Petal Blossom Rainbow, so he world was eagerly awaiting the reveal of the new arrival’s name.

In an interview with Gurgle Magazine , Jools has previously said: “They all have more than one name because I couldn’t decide.

“I’m not sure where Petal Rainbow came from – apparently it’s a My Little Pony! I wanted to call her Rainbow but Jamie told me to calm down!”

Jools continued: “With Buddy it was quite fun choosing a boy’s name, as I hadn’t done it before.

“And I hate people’s opinions on names. Whatever you call your baby is your decision.”

That’s it, our hearts are officially bursting with this beautiful family!
