"Everyone in the Oliver family is very surprised and beyond happy," Oliver wrote.

"He arrived safely, mum 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."

Wife Jools shared a snap on Instagram too, revealing how proud she was of the couple's teenage daughters, Poppy Honey, 14, and Daisy Boo, 13, who cut their new brother's umbilical cord.
