This celebrity couple is cooking up something new: The Naked Chef star Jamie Oliver, MBE, and his wife Juliette (aka “Jools”) are expecting their fifth baby this August!
The couple went public with the news when they attended the London premiere of the film Eddie the Eagle where Jools sported a small, but prominent, baby bump on the red carpet. Jamie explained that the pregnancy, while a blessing, was also a surprise and told The Mirror that he expected this to be their last child. “I think so, yeah, I mean, it’s getting ridiculous otherwise…This was not expected, I can’t even believe I’m saying it. I think my own family were like ‘really?!’ But we’re all turned in to kids, it’s good, it’s carnage!”
Jools, a designer for the children’s line Mothercare, had hinted previously at wanting another child. She told Red magazine in 2015, “I want a fifth, but I know it would be wrong…I neer 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…”
Jamie and Jools met in 1993 and married seven years later. The couple’s four children have received attention for their very unique names: their daughters are named Poppy Honey Rose (14), Daisy Boo Pamela (12), Petal Blossom Raindow (6), and their son is Buddy Bear Maurice (5). The family resides in Clavering, Essex in Britain.
