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. 8 lbs ( that's 16 packs of butter for you bakers out there) anyway were all hitting the hay it's been a long day big love... bless a little baby boy Woop Woop !!!!

Jamie, 41, recently revealed that he was hoping for another son.
He said: ''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. 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.''
