Jools Oliver's mum is stunning! The Little Bird designer shared a gorgeous black-and-white throwback photo of her mum Felicity to mark Mother's Day, and fans were quick to compliment the image, one even likening her to a "Bond girl". In the photo, Felicity is pictured wearing a sunhat while gardening, dressed in a bikini top, shorts and boots. Besides the photo, Jools wrote: "Happy happy mums day. To my truly wonderful, special mum brave, strong and kind. To all the other wonderful mums who do such a fantastic and important job. To those who no longer have their lovely mums and those wanting to become mothers and mums who have lost precious babies a special day. Much love xxx."

The photo went down a treat with Jools' followers, with one writing: "This photo of your mother is amazing," while another said: "What a fabulous photo!" A third said: "Wow, she looks like a Bond girl." Jools enjoys a close relationship with her mum; she is the youngest of Felicity's three daughters with her stockbroker husband Maurice, who sadly passed away in 1997, when Jools was 22. In a previous interview with Red magazine, Jools said it was her mum who most inspires her. "She's pretty inspirational," she said. "I hope I can be as strong as her."

A doting mum to five children between the ages of 15 and one, Jools was no doubt spoilt on Mother's Day. The childrenswear designer recently paid tribute to her two oldest girls to mark International Women's Day, branding them "two of my most favourite girls". In the photo, the trio were all smiles as they enjoyed a boat ride, with Jools writing besides the image: "Very happy international Women’s day. With just two of my absolute favourite girls. Hoping to raise strong, independent, supportive and ultimately kind girls and boys in our family, who look after each other and equally contribute something great to this wonderful world."

Jools has previously hinted that she would not be against having another baby in the future. Husband Jamie Oliver told The Telegraph in August that although he thought his family was complete, Jools thought differently. He said in response to whether they were finished at five children: "I think so, yes. I think at 42 you're pushing your luck. I haven't got any more room in the car, so we'd have to buy a bus." He added: "But Jools would love me to say 'never say never.' She'd tell me not to rule it out."
