Jamie Oliver's wife Jools shared the most heart-melting photo of the couple's youngest son, four-year-old River, on Wednesday, and her fans will no doubt have been delighted.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the proud mum posted a picture of the little boy standing in the family's kitchen at home.

River was wearing what appeared to be a pair of jogging bottoms and no top and beamed as he held up an unexpected guest in front of him – a chicken!

Jools captioned the adorable snap: "Morning from River!!" She teased her son as she went on: "We asked him to collect the eggs… not the chickens," adding sunshine and laughing emojis.

The doting mum shared the sweet photo of River to Instagram

He added the caption: "Meet the newest addition to the Oliver house... Saffron noodle."

The new addition divided opinion among Jamie's fans. One wrote: "No thank you, not a fan of any snakes!" and another agreed: "I couldn't live with a snake in my house!!!"

Other Instagram users were more taken with Buddy's new friend, however, with one writing: "So cool," and another adding: "Hello Saffron noodle! What a pretty snake you are!"

Jamie and Jools, who tied the knot in 2000, dote on their two sons and three daughters.

Jools and Jamie are parents-of-five 

The couple also share Poppy Honey, 19, Daisy Boo, 18, and Petal Blossom, 12.

The family moved to a dream home before the pandemic, towards the end of 2019, and it's the perfect countryside getaway.

The £6million Essex home is set on a vast 70-acre estate and boasts six bedrooms, ten bathrooms, two drawing rooms, a great hall, and (of course) a well-stocked pantry.
