Awww, what a perfect little mid-afternoon morsel --celebrity chef Jamie Oliver just tweeted that his baby boy arrived today. Isn't he adorable?

New Baby Boy Oliver joins dad Jamie, mom Jools, and his three big sisters Poppy Honey, 8, Daisy Boo, 7, and Petal, 1. And right in line with his sisters, he was given a floral-inspired name. Any guesses on the cutie's name?

It's Buddy Oliver!
Did you guess flowery boy names like Tansy, Laurel, or, uh, Snapdragon? Or maybe it's less floral and more herb, like Basil. Heath, Birch, Cedar, and Moss are also nice.

Nope ... none of the above. This sweet little new flower bud, his name is Buddy.

Get it? Bud-dy. Buddy Oliver. Hee hee. Love it. Perfect for this pink little sweetpea.

Earlier this year, Jamie Oliver did express his desire for a baby boy, saying it would certainly be great to have a little boy among the four females in the house but that he really only cared that the baby is healthy. It looks like he got both his wishes.

Jamie tweeted these two photos of his new son with the announcement: 

"it's a baby boy guys !!! im shock, were all very happy, mum was amazing and both are well and happy x4 kids!! what a great day!! now i have to pretend to know about football!! all tips on boys excepted much love jamie oxx"

And soon after tweeted:

"Mr Buddy Oliver .....full name to come from mum....big love joxx"

Jamie's wildly popular and Emmy-winning TV show Food Revolution has been renewed for a second season, in which he will take on  the obesity problem in Los Angeles, CA.

Congratulations to the Oliver family! Welcome, Buddy.
