Just hours after announcing the safe arrival of their baby boy, it was time for Jools and Jamie Oliver to return home. The couple looked ecstatic as they left London's Portland Hospital with their five children on Monday afternoon, and happily posed for photographers who had been waiting outside.
In a sweet family photo, Jools proudly cradled her newborn son while Jamie planted a tender kiss on his head. Their four other children surrounded them, with their eldest daughter Poppy Honey Rose, 14, holding her five-year-old brother Buddy Bear Maurice in her arms.

Sharing a photo of herself breastfeeding, Jools wrote: "Little boy Oliver has arrived, we are so very happy, blessed, grateful and totally in love all over again, and so very proud of our two eldest daughters who cut the cord," she wrote. "Jamie was my hero. (No name yet!!!) XXXX."
