"Meet Raphael Anders Redknapp, we’re so in love, mum is doing so well too. We can’t thank the amazing doctors and nurses at the Chelsea and Westminster enough 🙏🏻. So excited for him to meet my boys," Jamie wrote, confirming that, the sons he shares with ex Louise Redknapp, Charlie, 17, and Beau, 13, haven't met their new brother yet. 

Back in May, it was confirmed that Jamie and Frida were expecting their first baby (opens in new tab) as a couple and they went on to get married in October (opens in new tab) of this year, weeks before baby Raphael arrived.

Jamie and Frida, who are thought to have started dating back in August of 2020, tied the knot in a low-key ceremony at Chelsea Registry Office, surrounded by their loved ones.

Jamie was previously with ex wife Louise for 19 years but the long-term couple split back in 2017.
