Jools first got tongues wagging after Instagramming a picture of some nursery artwork, which reads: "Dream Big River." A rep for Jamie has now confirmed to Mail Online that River is in fact the tot's moniker.

Jamie initially announced the family's happy news on social media, telling fans: "IT'S A BABY BOY!! Everyone in the Oliver family is very surprised and beyond happy.

"He arrived safely, mum / @joolsoliver was really really amazing, unbelievably composed, natural birth and my two eldest Girls got to come in at the very end as the baby was born which was amazing to witness very very emotional."

"All good making the most of time with the family before I go back to work soon. Big love JO X."
