Jamie shares several adorable photos of himself and Buddy

The gorgeous snaps were taken by Buddy's godfather David Loftus, who is an award-winning photographer who has been working for the chef for years.

Friends and fans of the star loved the rare snaps and were quick to comment it, but not before proud wife and mum Jools who wrote: "2 of my favourite boys," accompanied by five red hearts.

"You're doing an amazing job, as your children seem so amazing but lovely, too!!!" commented a fan, whilst a second added: "The joy of parenthood in those pics. All the love shines through."

A third added: "That’s a proper father son relationship right there."

Jamie shared four other children with his wife of 20 years: Poppy, 18, Daisy, 17, 11-year-old Petal and four-year-old River.
