Jools Oliver is almost ready to pop! The designer is due to give birth to her 5th child in just a few days…
Throughout her pregnancy, there’s been a bit of speculation about whether or not she’s having a boy or a girl, especially as she recently took the pendulum test and posted a pic on Instagram (without revealing the result).
And since she and couple Jamie Oliver already have 4 children – 3 daughters and 1 son – hubby Jamie recently said he’d like to have another boy.
So when she shared this sweet photo of herself at what appears to be a baby shower-style bash, sporting a lovely blue dress, her Instagram followers began wondering if she’d inadvertently revealed that Jamie had got his wish!
It also didn’t help that as she blew out the candles on her cake, some fans noted that the cute candles themselves (which were arranged to spell out baby, awww) were blue, too.
Jools was quick to dismiss the rumours, though… saying the couple have decided not to find out the sex.
“❤️ oopps sorry still don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet have always loved a surprise! The candles are pink and blue not long to wait though 😊 xxx” she added beside the pic.
So, no big reveal here!
It would seem Jools is anxiously awaiting her little one’s arrival.
The mum-of-4 also revealed that she keeps packing and unpacking her hospital bag – in a post many of us will be able to relate to.
“How many times am I going to pack and unpack the baby’s hospital bag!!! Nerves and excitement taking over!!!” she wrote alongside the pic of her neatly-arranged hospital bag.
“Still have the little nightie my big sisters, myself and all our babies have now worn. 46 years old and my inspiration for all our little bird collections ❤️ xxx”
We gotta admit – it is nice to see that even mums who’ve been through birth 4 times still feel those nervous-excited butterflies in days and weeks before going into labour.
Wishing Jools all the best for the birth 😘
