Jamie Oliver has revealed the name he and his wife Jools have given to their new baby son, who was born earlier this month – River Rocket.

The 41 year old celebrity chef posted a family pic on Instagram on Wednesday (August 24th) on a scorching hot day in London, as they lazed outside in their garden. “Wow what a Hot Day today guys so the littlest one is stared out and sleeping again.”

“It’s probably polite to formally introduce the new boy to you, his names River Rocket Oliver we think it suits him and he's a little gift and we are all very happy… Thanks for all your kind wishes big love jamie and gang”.

The day before, Jools had dropped a big hint about their new arrival’s name, posting on her own Instagram “Dream Big River”, with a rocket emoji placed after it – leading some to correctly guess that she was spelling out their new arrival’s name.

Jamie and Jools, 41, had kept quiet about their new baby’s name since he arrived into the world on August 8th, but it’s no surprise that the parents kept up the habit of giving unusual names to their sons and daughters.

River joins his older sisters Poppy Honey, 14, Daisy Boo, 12, Petal Blossom, six and brother Buddy Bear, five.

Before the new baby was born, Jamie was asked for his thoughts on welcoming a fifth child into their family: “I thought we'd have a couple of kids but that's about it. Basically, I do what I'm told, but she's an amazing family maker and I just go with it.”

On whether he was hoping for a boy or a girl, the TV chef replied: “A bit more testosterone would probably be a good thing, but do you know what, I'm just grateful for whatever I get if it's healthy.”
