Jools Oliver shared a cute picture of two of her daughters with her fans on Tuesday after bravely opening up about the tragic miscarriages she has endured in the past
Jools Oliver has shared a sweet snap of two of her children on social media, just days after she opened up about enduring five heartbreaking miscarriages in the past.
The wife of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver took to her Instagram account on Tuesday to share an insight into her home life, posting a cute picture of daughters Petal, 12, and Daisy, 18 in the family kitchen.
“My girls,” the mum-of-five captioned the shot of her smiling children, alongside an emoji of a butterfly and a petal.
In the star’s latest social media update, Petal and Daisy can be seen with beaming smiles on their faces, as they stand in front of an open brick wall with an array of kitchen utensils on display.
Many of Jools’ 561,000 Instagram followers were quick to flood her post with compliments, with some fans thanking the celebrity mum for her recent comments regarding her heartbreaking miscarriages.
“Thank you for speaking out on your latest podcast. Such an important issue that needs to be addressed for so many women,” one fan wrote underneath the star’s post.
Another follower commented: “Thanks for sharing. I’m sure they are as proud of you as you are of them. Stay healthy, happy and safe.”
Earlier this month, Jools called for a change in provision of miscarriage aftercare after detailing her own experience during a chat on the Life & Soul Podcast.
The 46-year-old recalled one time when she feared she wouldn’t survive as there was “so much blood loss”.
“Jamie [Oliver] arrived and he was like, ‘Oh my god’. It was like a murder scene. It’s so visually hideous. I don’t remember the rest. I must have almost passed out,” the star explained when discussing one heartbreaking miscarriage.
The mum-of-five recently told The Mirror she and Jamie are considering IVF in a bid to expand their family further.
“So I have thought about IVF because having researched it and spoken to some amazing people, it seems like the right option for my age,” she shared.
“But you know that it’s hard because also I’ve got a partner you know, I’ve got to think about him. I’m not so sure he’s that keen to do it that way. So I don’t want to push anything, because I’m very lucky.”
The happy couple are already parents to Poppy Honey Rosie, 17, Petal Blossom Rainbow, 10, Buddy Bear Maurice, nine, Daisy Boo Pamela, 16, and River Rocket Blue, three.

Jools admitted that as she grows older, the desire to add a sixth child to her brood may pass.
“I presume when I get to an age when I’m in the menopause, I will think actually ‘thank God’,” she explained to us earlier this month.
“I will feel relieved that it’s not possible and I can just carry on with my life and you know, relax, because it’s always in the back of your head, that’s the problem.”
