Jools Oliver has revealed the name of her fifth child with husband Jamie Oliver. The proud mummy took to Instagram on Monday - two weeks after her baby boy's arrival - to make the big announcement, sharing a photo of a piece of nursery wall art that read: "Dream Big River." The moniker, which was predicted by HELLO! Online hours earlier, is in keeping with the couple's trend of giving their children unusual names, and has already proven to be a big hit with their fans.

Within 30 minutes of Jools sharing her post, it had received almost 2,000 likes as her followers rushed to comment on the chosen name. "So original and beautiful," wrote one, with another adding: "Beautiful and unique! Big love."

The couple are already parents to Poppy Honey Rose, 14, Daisy Boo Pamela, 12, Petal Blossom Rainbow, six, and five-year-old Buddy Bear Maurice, and Jools previously insisted everyone should have fun when it comes to naming their babies.

She told Gurgle: "They all have more than one name because I couldn't decide. I'm not sure where Petal Rainbow came from – apparently it's a My Little Pony! I wanted to call her Rainbow but Jamie told me to calm down.

Jamie and Jools are also parents to Poppy, Daisy, Petal and Buddy

"With Buddy it was quite fun choosing a boy's name, as I hadn't done it before. And I hate people's opinions on names. Whatever you call your baby is your decision."

And Jamie – who has confessed in the past that Jools has final say over the names – said earlier this year that her fifth pregnancy came as a shock to the whole family.

He told Closer: "Jools wanted one more, so what could I do? Women have the final control. She just loves being a mum and she's fantastic at it."
