Jamie Oliver has posted a cute photo of his baby son River Rocket after he had learned how to suck his thumb.

The proud father-of-five shared the sweet photo with his 5.3 million Instagram followers, captioning the post: "River found the glory of the Thumb = good times, gave me years of pleasure. Big love folks." Fans were quick to gush over the four-month-old baby boy, with one writing: "Far better than any dummy..and never lost..such a cutie," while another added: "Good for self-soothing!" The star regularly posts photos of his family on his social media accounts, and shared another snap of River over Christmas. In the photo, they are both lying down with Jamie looking at his baby son, and the celebrity chef captioned the photo: "Chilling, just hanging out by the River."

He also shared a photo of himself and his wife Jools with their five children on Christmas morning, writing: "Merry merry Christmas from me and the clan, I hope all your lovely cooking goes well today full of love and joy… get in there…big love to all my friends and family." The star opened up about spending time with family in an exclusive interview for HELLO! magazine, and how they planned to keep the special day quiet this year. "I've put a lot of hours in this year, River's come along and now in a routine, which is important when they're that young, and I thought, 'Let's change it up'' and have a slightly more sane Christmas, which I've never had," he said. "River is really good now, so we're relieved. Sleep deprivation is hard. But it's a dream now. We're like teenagers all of a sudden. We just need to get River into a bit more of a routine before we leave the house. Having time alone with Jools is the rarest thing."
