Jamie Oliver Welcomes Fifth Child with Wife Jools
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s family just got a little bigger again! The British cooking star welcomed his fifth child — a boy — this weekend with wife Jools.
“And then this just happened guys!! IT’S A BABY BOY !! Everyone in the Oliver family is very surprised and beyond happy. He arrived safely,” Oliver wrote on Instagram Sunday (Aug. 7, 2016) alongside a photo of his newborn son. “mum / @joolsoliver was really really amazing, unbelievably composed, natural birth and my two eldest girls got to come in at the very end as the baby was born which was amazing to witness.”
While Oliver has yet to reveal the baby’s name, the 41-year-old did gush that his new bundle of joy weighed in at 8 lbs. In true chef fashion, he added, “That’s 16 packs of butter for you bakers out there!” (Insert bun in the oven joke here.)
“Little baby boy Oliver has arrived. We are so very happy, blessed, grateful and totally in love all over again and so very proud of our two eldest daughters who cut the cord,” Oliver’s wife added on Instagram. “Jamie was my hero.”
The couple are also parents to daughters Daisy, Petal, and Poppy and son Buddy.
