Jools Oliver is a doting mum-of-five, and often posts photos of her adorable brood, in particular her youngest child, seven-month-old River Rocket, who was born in August last year. On Instagram on Wednesday, the Little Bird designer posted a sweet natural shot of River smiling into the distance – looking like the happiest little boy in the world! Fans couldn’t help but observe his striking likeness to his famous TV chef dad, Jamie Oliver, with one writing: “A mini Jamie,” while another commented: “So much like daddy.” A third quipped: “He’s a handsome lil dude, image of his daddy.”

Jools also posted a photo of her youngest daughter, eight-year-old Petal, who celebrated her birthday earlier in the week. The pretty little girl was seen modelling her mum’s latest collection for Little Bird in the family’s herb garden.

Jamie and Jools are also the parents to Poppy Honey, 15, Daisy Boo, 13 and six-year-old Buddy Bear. Speaking about their hectic family life, the celebrity chef dad told HELLO! Online: "Since Poppy was born, I just have to start at five, finish at ten at night, Monday to Friday. I have my structured holidays, my structured weekends, and I try to be a good boss and a good dad." Another tip on how to juggle work and play?

Family is incredibly important to both Jamie and Jools – and despite having already having a full house, Jools recently said she would consider having another baby in the future. "I'm getting older, but I'd definitely do it again if I could," she admitted last week. "I think Jamie's finished, but you never know. River's six months now, so we're past the really difficult sleepless first few months. He's such a joy."

Although busy with their brood to look after, Jamie and Jools are clearly still head over heels in love. Speaking in a previous interview, Jamie said that while he doesn't think marriage is "easy", he and Jools "love each other to bits". He added: "She's a wonderful person, kind and she's very sweet and sensitive and caring."
