Another commented, 'This is super cool, mate! Such a gorgeous family. You’re a lucky man ❤️ '

Early this year, Jools revealed the sad news that she's suffered three miscarriages in recent years.

Speaking on the Made by Mammas podcast, Jools explained that, although she’d really like to have a sixth child, "I’ve just had three miscarriages since then and I’m thinking… and a recent one three weeks ago and I’m thinking, 'No'. I do want to, but I’ve got to mentally check that it’s a good idea to do.

"And also physically because I am 45 as I always say, nearly 46. So it’s a little bit dodgy."
