And during the week he thrilled his followers, as he shared a rare family photo as Raphael was cradled by Jamie's mother, Sandra. The young boy was in a white T-shirt playing with some toys, while Sandra balanced him on her knee. She looked incredibly elegant, as she styled out a green blazer and white shirt with an opulent gold button as an accessory.
