Children's clothes designer Jools, also 41, reminisced over their romance with another old picture, which appeared to have been taken shortly after they became husband and wife.

She captioned it: "23 years my best friend and 16 of those married. Happy anniversary. Thank you xxxx."

Jamie and Jools began dating when they were 18, and, after knowing each other for more than 10 years, married at the All Saints church in his home village of Rickling, Essex.

Jools also looked back over their 16 year marriage

They're proud parents to Poppy Honey Rosie, 13, Daisy Boo Pamela, 12, Petal Blossom Rainbow, six, and five-year-old son Buddy Bear Maurice.

After announcing their exciting news earlier this year, Jamie insisted he was "really pleased" to be expecting another child, and added to the Mirror: "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."

And, although Jamie would happy whatever the gender of their next baby, he joked that he wouldn't mind having another boy around the house.

He added: "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 and I mean that sincerely. If I'm honest I go with the flow. Not that I'm giving advice, but part of a successful marriage is to go with the flow and shutting up when need-be, so we'll see what name she comes up with."
