Big congratulations to chef Jamie Oliver and his wife, Jools, who welcomed baby boy Buddy Bear Maurice Oliver into the world on Sept. 15. Jamie was so excited about his first son that he wasted no time in tweeting his arrival… and his picture!!!
“It’s a baby boy guys !!! I’m shock, were all very happy, mum was amazing and both are well and happy x4 kids!! what?!,” Jamie tweeted right after the birth. Could this new dad be more excited?? We love it!
Buddy is surrounded by all kinds of love. He already has three older sisters, Poppy Honey, 8, Daisy Boo, 7, and Petal, 1.
Buddy Bear Maurice weighed 6lb 9oz. at birth and was given the middle name Maurice in honor of Jools’ late father, who died in 1997 after suffering a stroke.
Jamie has said before that he secretly wanted a boy to round out his household, even though he would be happy with any healthy baby that came along.
“It would be great to have a boy, as I am in a totally oestrogen-filled house. But I really don’t mind as long as it’s healthy,” Jamie said before Buddy’s birth.
He also recently said that being a stay-at-home mom has been the best thing that has ever happened to his wife, even though he was worried when they first started their family that she was going to get sick of the job.
“She just wanted to be a mother and that was it. I didn’t understand at all. Why would you want to be a mother? We all want to have jobs and careers, don’t we? Everyone around me was the same. Until she became a mother, I never understood how honest she was being. She’s a mum and that’s her world.”
