They grow up so fast!

They’ve had a lot to celebrate after welcoming their fifth family member last month, but this week, it was all about Jamie and Jools’ first son.

On September 15, the adorable Buddy Bear Maurice Oliver blew six candles out on what we assume would be the most delicious birthday cake ever – most likely baked by his chef daddy Jamie.

Taking to Instagram, the beloved chef shared a sweet snap of his son following in his culinary footsteps.

In the “aww”-inducing pic, Buddy dons a homemade, paper birthday crown as he cooks a pancake breakfast with his dad.

“6 years old dear boy haha happy birthday little Buddy,” he wrote besides it.

Hotcakes in the Oliver household!

Mum Jools, who loves sharing regular snaps of her five kids on Instagram, also took to social media to share her own tribute for her son.

Next to a side-view snap of the blonde boy on a scooter, in which his ponytail stands out under a rainbow visor, she wrote: “Happy happy birthday little buds, 6 today we love you so much the kindest, sweetest quirkiest, cutest little thing and now the loveliest big brother.”

The six-year-old is growing up so fast!

The loved-up parents share five children together – Poppy Honey, 14, Daisy Boo, 13, Petal Blossom, seven, Buddy Bear, six, and newborn son River Rocket.

The 41-year-old chef recently admitted that he only thought he’d father two kids, but says that now, his brood is finally complete.

“Personally, I never thought I’d have more than two kids, but our family feels very completely now,” he said sweetly.

“I’m grateful that Jools is such a brilliant mum,” he added of his supermum wife.

What a lovely family!

When asked by Heat magazine whether he and Jools would consider baby number six, he was quite sure in his reply: “I really don’t think so.”
