Jamie Redknapp's wife Frida shares adorable new pic of baby Raphael two weeks after giving birth

JAMIE Redknapp's wife Frida has shared an adorable new close-up snap of baby son Raphael just two weeks after giving birth.

The new mum, who welcomed her fifth child Raphael Anders on November 24, took to her Instagram with the sweet picture.

Swedish-born model Frida, 38, took a close-up photograph of her adorable baby boy as he lay down in his cot on Monday morning.

The mother-of-five placed a gentle hand on the side of his head as she showed off his dark eyes and full head of mousy brown hair.

She captioned the snap, which saw the newborn tucked under a blanket and wearing a grey babygro, with his name and a red love heart emoji.

Proud dad Jamie, 48, took to the comments alongside adoring fans to share a red love heart of his own in response to the cute photo.

Since his birth three weeks ago, Jamie – who is also dad to Charlie, 17, and Beau, 13, with ex-wife Louise – and Frida have shared a handful of snaps of their son.

Over the weekend, the former footballer showed his mum Sandra meeting her grandson, and also included one of the tot with his lookalike brother Mark.

In the pictures proud nan Sandra can be seen gazing down at little Raphael, while 51-year-old Mark is holding out a finger for the baby.

"This makes me so happy. First time Raphael met his nanny and uncle Mark," Jamie wrote of the collection of snaps.

Jamie and his new wife Frida Andersson welcomed Raphael last month, just five weeks after they tied the knot.

Posting an adorable snap of him and the baby on Instagram at the time, Jamie wrote: "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."

A source revealed the special meaning behind Raphael's name, telling The Sun: "Jamie and Frida wanted to give him a Swedish name too, and Frida loved her late grandfather Anders so they named him after him."

Model Frida and Jamie's blended family also includes her children – three sons and a daughter – from her marriage to Jonathan Lourie.

Jamie's ex-wife Louise,47, was recently forced to hit back at reports she is "in despair" over his and Frida's new arrival.

Sharing a snap of a magazine report on Instagram, she wrote: "I'd really love to clarify that "Louise" is not in despair or anything like it!!

"I have my two gorgeous boys that I adore more than anything in the world, the best family around me and I'm having the best time of my life in my career and with the most wonderful friends that a girl could hope for."
