JAMIE and Frida Redknapp both became parents again this week, and have officially blended their family, with seven kids in total now.
Jamie is already a dad to sons Beau, 13, and Charley, 17, with his ex-wife Louise Redknapp.
Meanwhile Frida has three sons and a daughter from her former union with American hedge fund manager Jonathan Lourie.
The Swedish model gave birth to her and Jamie’s first child together, Raphael Anders, and has already changed her Instagram bio to “Mamma to 5 precious kiddies” and added a baby emoji.
Sharing an adorable photo of himself cosied up to his sleeping newborn, Jamie said: "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."
In a sweet message to fans online, Frida also revealed the newborn's sweet nickname.
She wrote: "Our Viking has arrived. Feeling beyond blessed to have welcomed this precious little boy, Raphael Anders Redknapp, to our family.
"A big thank you to all the wonderful doctors and nurses at Chelsea Westminister Hospital."
Frida is quite private about her four eldest children – who she shares with her ex Jonathan – and has never revealed their names or ages.
But it’s clear from pictures shared by her her social media accounts that she’s extremely proud of them, and has taken them on some fabulous holidays to places like France and Switzerland throughout their life.
We take a closer look at the family Jamie has inherited since marrying Frida…
Playing with ‘her little loves’
Frida and Jamie went public with their relationship in August 2020, after meeting through mutual friends a year before.
And she now lives with him in his Surrey mansion.
But, prior to meeting the former footballer, Frida was living in Kensington, west London, with her four children.
She has shared a picture of herself with two of her sons playing around in their back garden, doing yoga.
The photo showed Frida in a Downward Dog position, with one of her boys planking underneath her, while the other ran around them.
She joked: “Love a peaceful yoga session #Mylittleloves” with a cry-laughing emoji.
Frida and her children also enjoy spending time in London’s parks, and she’s shared a video of them all playing with a parachute in one.
Luxury holidays to French coast and Switzerland
Frida’s ex Jonathan is said to be worth £80million, so it’s not a surprise that her children have had a very charmed life – with lots of holidays.
In 2017, she took the four kids to Cote D’Azur in France, where they walked along the river.
She shared a snap from the holiday, and wrote: “My tribe 🍀 me ❤️ them so. Precious moments!”
Two years earlier, the family went to the Alps in Switzerland together.
In a stunning black and white photo, the kids were all seen playing with their mum outside, and Frida gushed: “Never a dull moment with these 4 cuties.”
Loved-up couple bonded over fitness
Jamie and Frida have had a whirlwind relationship, having only been together for not long over a year.
And Jamie was apparently drawn to Frida due to the fact she’s also a parent “and into fitness, like he is”.
And Frida has obviously passed on her love of exercise to her kids.
She went to the gym with one of her sons, who’s 14, and he was seen squatting with weights while she filmed him in the mirror.
“My 14 year old son is a fitness addict like his mum,” she said.
And in another picture, her daughter and one of her sons are seen working out with personal trainer, James Dabb.
She wrote: “Two fitness loving teens.”
But the exercise doesn’t stop there for the four kids.
Proud mum gushes about sporty kids
Frida regularly shares videos and pictures of them taking part in sports – everything from rock climbing to table tennis to rugby – and is clearly very proud of their achievements.
She shared one snap of one of her sons climbing a wall, and wrote: “My lil brave boy.”
And in another video, one of her sons is playing rugby in a Harrow vs Eton match – it’s unclear which team he plays for – and running across the pitch with the ball in hand.
She gushed: “My speedy boy! Proud Mumma!”
But it’s her son who she calls “My Lil A” that she seems to post the most about.
In one video, he can be seen throwing a basketball into the net from the balcony of their home to the end of the garden.
She’s also posted a snap of him collecting an award, and climbing a rope at the Bear Grylls Survival Academy.
Raphael is sure to be a sports star too with Jamie and Frida as his parents.
