Is this the name of Jamie and Jools Oliver's baby son?

They've updating fans on their new baby's progress with regular photos on social media, but so far Jamie and Jools Oliver are keeping his name firmly under wraps. Jools, 41, gave birth to their fifth child at the beginning of August – and since then we've been desperate to know what undoubtedly creative moniker they've chosen.

Jamie, also 41, and his wife are also parents to Poppy Honey Rose, 14, Daisy Boo Pamela, 12, Petal Blossom Rainbow, six, and five-year-old Buddy Bear Maurice, and we've found a few clues that could potentially be pointing to what he's called.


Are you ready?

Could Jamie Oliver's sister have given the game away?

Proud grandparents Sally and Trevor Oliver took some time out last week, and he shared a snap of them enjoying a relaxing boat trip which he captioned: "Mucking about on the river." Celebrity chef Jamie's sister Anne-Marie Hunt then left a very suggestive comment on the photo.

She wrote: "It's all about the River today!" As well as making a point to use a capital 'R', the baby's aunt also added a wink, rocket and the speak-no-evil monkey emojis. Could this mean the little boy is called River? Or even River Rocket? Children's clothing designer Jools has insisted in the past that parents should have fun when naming their children, plus Rocket could also be a subtle nod to Jamie's profession.

Jamie and Jools welcomed their fifth child at the beginning of August

Especially as their son's first outing was to the vegetable patch with his daddy…

And it seems as if we're not the only ones keen for Jamie and Jools to give us a name; Trevor shared another photo shortly after the birth, congratulating the family on the newest addition, and one fan has since commented: "River is a lovely name."

With every post Jamie, Jools, Trevor and Sally post inundated with requests for the baby's name, hopefully it won't be long before we find out.
