Very on brand, Jamie.

Jamie and Jools Oliver welcomed a fifth addition to their brood last night, and they were quick off the mark to announce the happy news on social media.

While we can never resist a swaddled-sleeping-baby photo, it was Jamie’s caption that really won us over.

The chef definitely put his signature style on the birth announcement, converting his new son’s birth weight into something a little more, er, baking-friendly.


“Eight lbs (that’s 16 packs of butter for you bakers out there),” he wrote alongside the photo of his sleeping son, who has yet to be named. While we’ve never thought about babies in terms of packs of butter before, we do admire Jamie’s commitment to the foodie cause.

The dad of five said the birth was “very very emotional” and praised Jools for being so “amazing and composed” throughout, adding that the couple’s eldest daughters Daisy and Poppy had come in to cut the cord after their new brother was born.

Jools had her own praise to offer, calling Jamie her “hero” and saying the family were “so very happy, blessed, grateful and totally in love all over again.”
