Congratulations to celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and his wife, Jools, who just welcomed a baby boy over the weekend. This is couple’s fifth child together!

Jamie took to Instagram Sunday night to share the details (well, everything except for the name), writing: “And then this just happened guys!! IT’S A BABY BOY !!  Everyone in the Oliver family is very surprised and beyond happy.”

He added, “He arrived safely, mum / @joolsoliver 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.”

What a special moment!

While Jamie said they didn’t have a name yet, he did share the baby’s birth weight, putting it into culinary terms, of course: “8 lbs (that’s 16 packs of butter for you bakers out there).”

Jamie noted that it was a big day for all, writing, “We’re all hitting the hay. It’s been a long day big love… bless a little baby boy Woop Woop !!!! And love to all you mums out there how amazing you are. It blows my mind.”

Jools also posted a sweet mommy and baby moment pic on Instagram, giving a shoutout to her little one, their daughters, and her amazing hubby: “Little baby boy Oliver has arrived. We are so very happy, blessed, grateful and totally in love all over again and so very proud of our two eldest daughters who cut the cord. Jamie was my hero. (no name yet)!!!”

The chef continued the lovefest in the morning, posting a pic of the adoring dad with his little one, writing: “Morning Son ….. I can’t imagine I’ll ever take a better selfie, he’s so sweet. Big love guys Jox X X X X X thanks for all your good wishes I really appreciate them X x”
