“And then this just happened guys!! IT’S A BABY BOY !! Everyone in the Oliver family is very surprised and beyond happy. He arrived safely,” the proud dad wrote on Instagram on the evening of Aug. 7. “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.”
And while their little bundle of joy doesn’t have a name quite yet, he weighed in at 8 lbs, or, as Jamie put it, “16 packs of butter for you bakers out there.” SO sweet! And Jools also shared the happy news on her own Instagram account, posting a pic of her nursing her newborn with the caption, “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,” she gushed. “Jamie was my hero.”
Recently, Jamie expressed his hopes of having another baby boy in the family. “I thought we’d have a couple of kids but that’s about it. Basically, I do what I’m told, but she’s an amazing family maker and I just go with it,” he explained to the Daily Mirror. “A bit more testosterone would probably be a good thing, but do you know what, I’m just grateful for whatever I get if it’s healthy.” Aw! We are so glad everything worked out for the newly-expanded fam — congrats again you two!
