Sat cross-legged in her yoga leggings, Jools Oliver looks the picture of happiness with a wide smile and her hands clasped to her baby bump.


Reposting her yoga teacher Nadia's pic, she commented: "Good to be back Nards and little baby growing fast too ❤️ loved today as always."

But at 6 months pregnant, she couldn't have known that sharing the picture on Instagram would kick off speculation on the sex of her baby.

" Looks like a boy...," one fan commented.

"Another boy," another agreed.

"Yep I agree a boy, all at the front! Nothing else changes," a third fan explained.


So does the fact that Jools is carrying at the front really mean she's expecting a boy? Here's what old wives tales have to say about bumps.

Jools and her husband TV chef Jamie Oliver already have 4 children together: Poppy Honey Rosie, 14, Daisy Boo Pamela, 13, Petal Blossom Rainbow, 7, and 5-year-old son Buddy Bear Maurice – a total of 3 girls and 1 boy.


Their eldest daughter Rosie celebrated her birthday this week and Jools shared a picture on Instagram of all her daughters together. "Happy 13th beautiful girl we love you so much ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️," she commented.


But as her eldest becomes a teenager, Jools went for a scan and got a glimpse of her baby-to-be.

"Little long limbs ❤️," she wrote, sharing part of the scan on Instagram.
