The post comes shortly after Jools told her fans she was going to cherish every moment with her children before they grow up into adults. Sharing a snap of Petal going to a ballet class, the doting mother wrote: "These days I shall miss the most when she grows up. I remember going through the ballet phase with each of my girls (and Bud for that matter)!!" Jools is also a loving mother to four other children - daughters Poppy, 17, Daisy, 16, and sons Buddy, nine, and River, two - all of whom she shares with husband Jamie Oliver.

"I loved getting there slightly earlier to pick them up so I could catch a glimpse of them dancing and I loved walking home with them, hand in hand discussing all the important things in their little world," she added. "With Pops off to Uni next year I will cherish these moments always xxx." The 44-year-old's followers sympathised with her, with one writing: "Love this, makes me happy and sad all at once xxx." Another remarked: "The ballet phase is beautiful and fulfils every little girl and mummy fantasy I ever could have imagined... just as the football phase has done the same for my husband and our little (ok, no so little anymore) boy! Xxx."
