Shine on in a metallic bomber jacket by Gucci

Congratulations to Jamie, Jools and the whole Oliver family on the brand new addition to their brood!

And can we all just take a second to appreciate how amazing Jools looks? Here she is at a film premiere back in March proving that she has maternity dressing down to a fine art. The yummy mummy looked super chic in a loose-fitting black silk jumpsuit and a stand-out metallic stripe bomber jacket.

With bomber jackets being a hot trend right now, and especially those with a little luxe vibe to them such as silk, floral embroidery or metallic fabrics, she is really hitting the style mark in this ensemble.

The jacket is a Gucci number, instantly recognisable by those striped cuffs and collar. Unfortunately the metallic stripe version isn't available to buy, but click (right) to get your hands on the same one in gold.

Or for more high shine bombers, look to our edit below with styles from Isabel Marant, Boohoo, Topshop and Nasty Gal. Here's hoping we can look that good at 41 and after five children!

The couple announced their baby news in March when Jools hit the red carpet at the London premiere of Eddie The Eagle to show off her baby bump. 

Speaking on the red carpet, the chef explained: 'I thought we'd have a couple of kids but that's about it. Basically I do what I'm told but she's an amazing family maker and I just go with it.'

The celebrity chef continued: 'I love kids. My family keep me honest, I have a weird job, a weird life, but my family keep me quite real.'

However, the TV favourite was adamant that number five would be the last one: ‘This will be the last one. It is just getting ridiculous otherwise.

‘This was not expected. I can’t even believe I’m saying it. My own family were shocked too.’ 

That's it! Jamie insisted in March that he and Jools would stop at five children

Going strong: The couple met in 1993 and tied the knot in 2000, before welcoming their first daughter two years later. Jools conceived her first child using IVF but had the other three naturally

Jools previously admitted her wish for another sibling for their children Poppy Honey, 14, Daisy Boo, 12, Petal Blossom, six and Buddy Bear, five. 

Her husband found fame through TV series The Naked Chef in 1999 but Jools now has her own children's clothing line, Little Bird. 

Despite Jools' enthusiasm for more children, Jamie has always been a little more sceptical about another child, previously admitting that four kids was 'more than enough' and that a vasectomy 'could be an option'.

In 2013, Oliver, who now owns and runs several restaurant chains, explained: '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.

'If she really, really wants another one then she might get her way, but I am very blessed with what I've got.'
