Chef Jamie and kids' clothing designer Jools, both 41, are already parents to Poppy Honey Rose, 14, Daisy Boo Pamela, 12, Petal Blossom Rainbow, six, and five-year-old Buddy Bear Maurice. Shortly after announcing Jools' pregnancy, Jamie confessed his family were shocked by the news. 

He told the Mirror: "I love kids, my family keep me honest. I have a weird job, a weird life, but my family keeps me quite real. I thought we'd have a couple of kids, but that's about it."

The happy couple have been together since they were 18

Jamie also confessed he thinks this will be their last child, continuing: "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 tuned into kids, it's good, it's carnage!"

Jools and Jamie have been together since they were 18, and married in his hometown of Rickling, Essex, aged 25.
