Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has made sensational claims this week, revealing that his wife of 23 years Jools made him cancel his planned vasectomy.

The 47-year-old is known for his large brood and shares five children – Poppy Honey Rose, 21, Daisy Boo Pamela, 20, Petal Blossom Rainbow, 14, Buddy Bear Maurice, 12, and River Rocket Blue Dallas, 6 – with his wife. 

After calling time on any future kids (unplanned AND planned), Jamie booked himself in for “the snip.”

But after rocking up for his vasectomy, Jamie says Jools made him cancel the appointment on the spot. 

“She made me cancel there and then, live. I’m like, ‘I’m so sorry, Mr Surgeon,’ Jamie revealed candidly to the Daily Star. 

“He goes, ‘It won’t be the first time and it won’t be the last, but I’d love to spay you another day when you’re ready.’

“He actually did say that. But I do need to be done,” Jamie laughed.

This isn’t the first time that Jamie and Jools have seemingly disagreed about having more children, Jamie telling our sister publication TV Week in 2019 that his wife “wanted more.”

“I can give you a stronger answer, like, ‘Look, five is enough. I’m struggling already to get them in the car. I can’t even have a car anymore. I drive a f****** bus. We don’t need any more kids.’ 

“But you would be under the idea that I have any control over this situation. So, we’ll see.”

Back in 2012, prior to the birth of their fifth and perhaps not final son River in 2016, Jamie told The Mirror that he wanted more date nights with his wife, and not his children. 

“She would love a number five but I would like to call it a day,” Jamie said. 

“I sort of feel like we are just out of nappies now and I have got four kids and it’s more than enough.

“It’s quite hard to have time for each other when you have four kids so I don’t want another excuse for me and Jools not to have time together.”
