Jools & Jamie Oliver Baby

UPDATE ~ Baby’s name is Buddy Bear Maurice and he weighed in at 6 lbs., 9 oz. Maurice honors Jools’ late father, who passed away in 1997 after a stroke.

September 15, 2010 ~ Jamie Oliver took to Twitter to announce the news; “It’s a baby boy guys!!! I’m shock[ed], we’re all very happy, mum was amazing and both are well and happy x4 kids!! What a great day!! Now I have to pretend to know about football!! All tips on boys [ac]cepted.”

The new addition was born naturally Wednesday, Sept. 15 in London and joins big sisters Petal Blossom Rainbow, 17 months, Daisy Boo Pamela, 7, and Poppy Honey Rosie, 8½.

The pregnancy — which was a bit of a happy accident — was announced in April.

Jools has been very open in the past about her use of hormone treatments to conceive the first two girls naturally and has published a non-fiction book about her problems conceiving. Minus Nine to One: The Diary of an Honest Mum, famously revealed intimate details of the couple's fertility process, including one about Jamie racing across London on his scooter to deliver a jam jar of his sperm to Hammersmith Hospital.

The couple have been married since 2000 and have known each other since they were 15.

He made his name on BBC2 as the Naked Chef and founded the restaurant chain, 15, to train disadvantaged young people. In recent years he has campaigned on public health issues, notably Jamie's School Dinners which campaigned for the provision of better quality meals for school children.
