Jamie Oliver’s beautiful bub’s name finally revealed!

Ah, Jamie and Jools – you sure know how to keep the world waiting! It’s been two weeks since the birth of the couple’s fifth child, and they’ve kept their second son’s name secret, until now. With their other children boasting rather unique monikers, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the name of the newest member of the Oliver clan.

We’ve been gleefully blissed-out along with the Oliver family over the past few days, with both Jamie and Jools uploading some touching images to their Instagram accounts.

And now, we finally know what the brother of Poppy Honey Rosie, 14, Daisy Boo Pamela, 13, Petal Blossom Rainbow, six, and Buddy Bear Maurice, five is called. Welcome to the world little River!

Jools posted this image of a nursery print via Instagram not long ago, and you don’t need to be a super sleuth to work out that this is the gorgeous name they’ve given their newborn. Jools has also left a comment on the above post that suggests perhaps the name Rocket may also be part of the mix – River Rocket perhaps? Rocket appears to be a current trend among celebrity parents, with Sam and Lara Worthington naming their first born Rocket Zot.

While we’ve all been eagerly anticipating the name of youngest member of the Oliver family, it appears the biggest clue was revealed about a week ago. Jamie’s dad Trevor posted the above image to Instagram, with the caption, ‘Mucking about on the river’, to which Jamie’s sister replied, ‘It’s all about the River today!’. And that cute little rocket emoji once again makes an appearance!

Jools Oliver has gushed that she’s very much in love with her youngest child, and proud of her eldest daughters who helped cut the cord at his birth.

And Jamie is like a new dad all over again, completely besotted with his little bundle, and melting hearts everywhere as he heaps praise on his stunning wife. He even hacked into her Instagram account to post the above image writing, “I can’t tell you what a wicked mum this chick is…. I had the best week off readjusting to the new family member a baby boy and I’ve loved every single minute”. Sigh. 

We have to say that little River is certainly a chip off the ol’ block – how much does he look like his celebrity chef dad?
