Here's what she wrote in her post:
"He's here! Baby Jesse Jones, born on Tuesday 3rd November and now home safe with his family. We are all a bit smitten. Welcome to the world, darling boy. Xx"
They have three more sons; Sonny Jones, 12, Kt Jones, 8, Ray Jones, 4.
As per Sophie, the reason behind their successful marriage is the fact that even after such tight schedule they manage time for each other. They often go out and spend quality time together; far from all the stress *cough* "children."
"Both Richard and I work in unpredictable industries and often have to work at the weekend. But if we do have time off, we might have a date night on a Friday. My mum lives nearby, so she’ll come over to babysit or we’ll drop the boys off at hers."
She further said:
“We have a lot of friends in the entertainment industry, so we might go to one of their gigs or to the theatre. Recently, one of my girlfriends was in Bull at the Young Vic and another starred in Henry IV Part 1 at the Barbican."
Two months later, after welcoming the baby, she was spotted with her better half attending the Creme de la Mer VIP dinner at London's Sexy Fish. She wore a black peplum style dress and people hardly believed that it was her post-baby body.
They surely know how to manage their 'we time' together far from all the responsibilities.
“The boys go to bed at around 9.30pm, a little bit later than usual, then Richard and I will watch a few episodes of Better Call Saul, the follow-on from Breaking Bad. It’s vital to have time together as a couple, to chat and relax together."
They are such an adorable couple, Let's congratulate them on their wonderful family life.
