Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and wife Jools have announced the arrival of their fourth child - a little boy called Buddy.

Proud dad Jamie used Twitter to spread the word on his son's safe delivery, telling the world: 'it's a baby boy guys!!! im shock (sp) were all very happy, mum was amazing and both are well and happy x4 kids!! '

Buddy was pictured in a cot being tending to by nursing staff.

Jamie later Tweeted another picture of the baby, and revealed his name: 'Mr Buddy Oliver .....full name to come from mum....big love joxx'

Jamie, who is dad to three daughters, Poppy Honey, eight, Daisy Boo, seven, and one-year-old Petal, has made no secret of his desire to have a son, previously revealing that he and Jools would consider adopting if one didn't come along naturally.

'If I can't produce a boy I will have to adopt one. I would consider it. We have three beautiful, healthy girls and we cherish them. But I'd be lying if I said it wouldn't be great to have a boy. Adoption is such a selfless act and they have a lovely family environment. It's humbling and beautiful to see.'
