Explaining the name, a spokesman for the couple said: "Boo is actually Jools's nickname. All concerned are doing well. It was a natural birth and all went smoothly."

The birth was just over a year after the couple's other daughter Poppy Honey was born. She celebrated her first birthday on March 18.

The couple, both 27, had been dating since they were teenagers and married in 2000.

They underwent fertility treatment for their first child as Jools suffered from polycystic ovary syndrome and they had feared she might not be able to have children.

However, their new daughter was conceived naturally and was born just over a year after Poppy.

Oliver opened his own restaurant, Fifteen, last year with Channel 4 viewers watching the trials and tribulations as he trained up his staff from scratch on hit show Jamie's Kitchen.

Jamie, whose youngsters were born only a year apart, cracked a joke with medical staff as they left the hospital yesterday.

"See you again next year,' he told them.
