Happy ninth birthday to Jamie Oliver and Jools' youngest daughter, Petal! Jools took to Instagram to celebrate the little girl's special day, sharing a sweet photo of Petal posing in the garden, wearing a blue-and-white sailor's outfit. "Happy birthday our gorgeous little girl now you are 9. My best friend," Jools wrote.

Petal is the third child of celebrity chef Jamie and his wife Jools. The couple also have two older daughters, Poppy, 16, and Daisy, 14, and two young sons, seven-year-old Buddy and baby River, who will turn two in August. Jools regularly shares photos of her gorgeous family on Instagram, never failing to celebrate milestones including their birthdays.

Happy ninth birthday Petal!

Last month, she wished her eldest child, Poppy, a happy sixteenth birthday, captioning a photo: "Pops you are 16 and we couldn't be prouder of you, best friend." She followed it up with another photo of the family's celebrations, which showed Petal trying to stop her brother Buddy from blowing out Poppy's birthday candles. "One of my favourite memories from yesterday," Jools wrote.

Last year, father-of-five Jamie revealed that he thinks his family is complete, although his wife thinks differently. In response to whether they were finished at five children, Jamie told The Telegraph: "I think so, yes. I think at 42 you're pushing your luck. I haven't got any more room in the car, so we'd have to buy a bus." He added: "But Jools would love me to say, 'Never say never.' She'd tell me not to rule it out."

And it isn't just Jools who is hoping for another baby in the future. Over Christmas, Petal presented her mum with a sweet handmade drawing of the family, leaving extra room at the end for 'the next child.' Jools shared the picture on social media, writing besides it: "One of my fav presents from Petal...loving the additional extra!!!! (absolutely not an announcement)!!!!"
