Jamie Oliver's wife Jools reflected on her miscarriages in an emotional post to mark Baby Loss Awareness Week
Jools has previously opened up about one of her devastating miscarriages. In May 2018, the mother-of-five paid tribute to her midwives on International Day of the Midwife, and revealed that she lost two "little angels." During a chat with Daily Mail, Jools opened up about the impact her miscarriages had on her future pregnancies. She explained: "I had a miscarriage at three months, which makes you so worried once you are pregnant again - it makes it impossible to enjoy the early stages of pregnancy."
Jamie and Jools are doting parents to five children
Over the years Jools has spoken out about her love for being a mum and while Jamie works during the week, she is at home with their brood - Poppy, 17, Daisy, 16, Petal, ten, Buddy, nine, and River, two. The celebrity couple are an incredibly strong unit and work hard to ensure that their children have a normal upbringing, despite growing up in the public eye. However, Jools admitted in the past that it has been hard for her oldest children at school. She told Red magazine: "I don't want them to be aware of anything, but it's too late: they are. They're not stupid. I think they find it quite hard at school. It can be a bit awkward if the other kids say, 'Can I get your dad's autograph?' My eldest [Poppy] doesn't like it. If Jamie comes to pick her up, it's just too embarrassing for her. So I do all that."
