'I want a fifth, but I know it would be wrong': Jools Oliver admits she may have another baby with Jamie


By Emily Sheridan

She's already got her hands full with four children aged between 10 and 22 months.

But Jamie Oliver's wife Jools admits in the new issue of Red magazine that the couple are considering having a fifth child.

While celebrity chef Jamie is working in his various food ventures, Jools, 36, is a stay-at-home mum to their children Poppy Honey, 10; Daisy Boo, nine; Petal Blossom, three, and Buddy Bear, 22 months.

Posing in a photoshoot with her children in the August issue of the women's glossy, Jools reveals she thinks she could cope with another baby.

She said: '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...'

Jools admits she and Jamie have very different attitudes to parenting - he's a lot more relaxed than she is.

She explained: 'I drive him mad, and he drives me mad. He doesn’t worry about anything, especially when it comes to the kids. If they’re choking, he’s sat there going, "Oh, they’ll sort it out", while I’m on the floor, dead from panicking.'

She admits since having the children, she's a lot more relaxed about Jamie spending time away from her.

She said: 'Obviously, I’ve grown up a lot. I used to get really jealous. I would demand: "Where you going? What you doing?"

'Now I suppose, having the children, I’m a lot more relaxed, and happier about doing my own thing.'

While Jamie tries to help out with the children as much as possible, Jools admits they don't want him to do the school run.

She explained: 'I think they find it quite hard at school. It can be awkward if the other kids say, ‘"an I get your dad’s autograph?"

'My eldest [Poppy] doesn’t like it. If Jamie comes to pick her up, it’s just too embarrassing for her. So I do all that.'
