Happy birthday River! Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools are celebrating their youngest child's first birthday, and to mark the happy occasion, Jools has shared a beautiful tribute on social media. Sharing a picture of her little boy shortly after his birth, the mother-of-five gushed: "Happy first birthday little River Rocket Blue Dallas. The moment we first met you, I think I was clinging on to you pretty tightly!"

She added: "You have brought so much happiness and love in to our family. You are the happiest little soul with the biggest smile and dimple and you are so adored by your big sisters and brother and everyone around you. So looking forward to waking you up now for the biggest cuddle." As well as being his parents' pride and joy, the youngest member of the Oliver family is well taken care of by his older siblings, six-year-old Buddy, eight-year-old Petal, Daisy, 14, and 15-year-old Poppy.

Last week, Jamie posted a lovely snap of his youngest son during a recent family vacation. Revealing his surprise that River would soon be turning one, Jamie wrote: "My boy with my girl…can't believe he's nearly 1 years old already?? How fast time goes…" And although Jamie and Jools, who have been married since 2000, have their hands full with their large brood, Jools has revealed she is open to having a sixth child: She told Vogue: "I'll never really draw the line. I'm getting older, but I'd definitely do it again if I could. I think Jamie's finished. But you never know!"
