Jools Oliver has shared an incredibly powerful photograph of the birth of her youngest child, River Rocket. The picture captures the very moment that the mum-of-five met River, straight after giving birth to him two years ago. Jools looks super emotional in the photo, as she holds her hands out to hold her newborn son for the first time. The image has been shared as part of a campaign being run by Mothercare, who captioned the post: "As part of our #firststeps campaign, where we are celebrating the joy of becoming a parent, @joolsoliver gave us this wonderful image of her first moments with her newborn baby River. The sheer emotion on Jools’ face says it all, pure LOVE LOVE and more LOVE."

Jools wrote: "Buds you are eight. We are so proud of you. Kind, gentle, sensitive and just flipping cute. Almost forgiven for getting us up five times last night asking us if it was time to get up! May you always be this excited." The doting mum also recently shared a photo of her 15-year-old daughter Daisy and some fans mistook her for Jules because of the shocking likeliness.
