Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools have 5 kids together and have made no secret of the fact they've been trying for a 6th.

In a recent podcast interview, Jools opened up about her recent miscarriages and their plans for the future.

"When you first came in the podcast you said you were contemplating, you really wanted to go for a sixth child," the podcast host said.

“I really do, I really do but I’ve just had three miscarriages since then and a recent one three weeks ago and I’m thinking: ‘No,’ I dunno,” Jools dai.

“I do want to, but I’ve got to mentally check that it’s a good idea to do. And also physically because I am 45 as I always say, nearly 46. So it’s a little bit dodgy.

“Jamie is still up for it, kind of…not really,” she continued. “I haven’t got long, maybe another year and then I really will just shut that chapter off because I am very happy and I am pretty full up at the moment as it is. But just that little baby, it’s a terrible thing to keep wanting something and you can’t help it”.

She went on to say that she has been talking to her doctor about her experiences.

“I went to see the doctor the other day and he said, ‘How are you mentally?’ and I thought about it and I went: ‘Well, this is the fifth one now’.”

“I had two before River, and they’ve been early ones, the last two have been at 6 ½ weeks, so I just feel… I’m really good at going ‘Right, I’m pregnant but it won’t work so I’m just going to carry on,’ whilst everyone gets really into it and I have really learnt to not because I’m kind of not very positive about it.”

Such a terrible experience for the whole family to go through, but it sounds like Jamie and Jools are dealing with things the best they can.
