Jamie Oliver to be dad again

Jamie Oliver and wife Jools expecting third child

Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools are expecting their third child together.

The TV chef – worth £40 million – and his wife already have two daughters, Poppy Honey, six, and five-year-old Daisy Boo, who are reportedly already ecstatic at the thought of being big sisters.

A family friend told the Mirror: ‘They don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet. Jamie would love a boy as it’s only girls in the house now.

‘The girls are so excited, already thinking about being big sisters.’

The couple are particularly pleased because Jools suffers with polycystic ovaries, and originally found it difficult to conceive, turning to IVF for her first two pregnancies.

Earlier this year she said: ‘I would love more kids, but number three is taking longer than I thought. If I have to go through the fertility drugs again, I will.’

But IVF treatment was not necessary for baby number three, and the former model is three months pregnant after conceiving naturally.
