Is Jools Oliver expecting a baby girl or a baby boy?

Jools and Jamie Oliver are already proud parents to three girls and one little boy – but what will their new addition be? The 41-year-old mummy, who is due to deliver her fifth child in August, has shared a photo on Instagram showing her using a pendulum to predict the gender of her baby.

The image shows pregnant Jools sat on the floor, her hands on her tummy, while a pink crystal on a chain is held over her bump. "Asking the pendulum if our little baby is a boy or a girl???" she wrote alongside. "Loving my Wednesday yoga, thanks Nards @nadianarain so fun @jamieoliver xxx."

According to tradition, if the crystal swings in a circle, it indicates a girl, and if it moves side to side, it's a boy – although Jools chose not to share the results of the test.

Jamie, 41, and his wife of nearly 16 years revealed their pregnancy news back in March, when Jools debuted her prominent baby bump on the red carpet at the premiere of Eddie The Eagle.

The happy couple, who tied the knot in July 2000 after dating for seven years, are already parents to daughters Poppy Honey Rosie, 14, Daisy Boo Pamela, 12, Petal Blossom Rainbow, six, and five-year-old son Buddy Bear Maurice.

Speaking to the Mirror in March shortly after the pregnancy announcement, Jamie admitted: "I thought we'd have a couple of kids and 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 happy couple have been married since July 2000

He continued: "I love kids. My family keep me honest. I have a weird job, a weird life, but my family keep me quite real."
