Being a parent isn't easy, but with five kids of their own, Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools know a little about raising a family. The British chef's other half has given fans a glimpse of their private life by sharing a heartwarming, aww-inducing apology from their six-year-old son Buddy.

Posting a snap of the handwritten note to her 495k followers, Jools admitted that she had forgotten what their fourth child did to warrant atonement. "Jamie and I get a few of these notes on our pillow every so often although this one we struggled to remember what he had done," the caption read.

In Buddy's letter, which was understandably littered with spelling errors, he expressed his remorse and asked his mum and dad for forgiveness.

He added that he could "think of something to repay you" and sealed the deal with three large hearts and two kisses.

The adorable message, which has garnered over 17,000 likes, quickly earned him legions of new fans.

"Oh my this is just so sweet," one person said while another commented: "Awwwww so so cute! That's such a good little boy!! Bless.

A third added: " love ❤️ the way he recognises 'Mum-stress' - I mean we all get that from time to time! Bless him!"

The post also prompted other parents to share their own experinecs, with one writing: "Some of our best notes came down from upstairs by an invisible girl dropping them on a long piece of string with a paper clip holding it in place. She now has a Phd in Physics and is working in London"

Jamie and Jools, who tied the knot in 2000, are also parents to Poppy,15, Daisy Boo, 14, and Petal, eight and 10-month-old River.
