Others commented: "It's all SOOOOO exciting!!!! Especially after the year we've had," and: "Awesome. Hope you guys have the most beautiful Christmas."

Jools and celebrity chef Jamie tied the knot back in 2000 and went on to welcome five children.

Their oldest daughters Poppy, 19, and Daisy, 18, are both at university, while 12-year-old Petal is at home with her parents and younger brothers, 11-year-old Buddy and little River, five.

The couple love spending time with all their children

Last month, the couple introduced fans to their new arrival, a cute Border Collie puppy. "Meet the newest Oliver family member Conker Oliver [heart emoji]," Jamie announced at the time.

Jools, meanwhile, confirmed the new addition by sharing a stunning shot of son Buddy cuddling up to their dog.

Responding to a friend in the comments who asked Jools: "Did it happen?", the mother-of-five replied: "It did [laughing emoji], only took 20 years!!!"
