She hinted, in January of last year, that she was eager to test out a Moses basket she had designed herself, causing speculation that baby number five was on the way. Now, we are delighted to report that Jools Oliver, the wife of celebrity chef Jamie, is in fact expecting again!


The couple confirmed their wonderful news as they stepped out on the red carpet for the European premiere of new film Eddie the Eagle, with Jools showing off her blossoming baby bump in a black jumpsuit.


Admitting that he is “really pleased” to be adding to his brood, chef Jamie joked: “I thought we’d have a couple of kids but that’s about it. Basically, I do what I’m told, but she’s an amazing family-maker and I just go with it.”



The couple are already parents to 13-year-old Poppy Honey, 12-year-old Daisy Boo, six-year-old Petal Blossom, and five-year-old Buddy Bear.


Jools has in the past made no secret of the fact that she wanted another baby. In an interview with Red magazine in 2012, she admitted: “I want a fifth. But I know it would be wrong. I never get any time to spend with Jamie as it is. He has said give it a couple of years, then maybe we can think about it.”


We are so delighted for the family.
