Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver may rule in the kitchen, but at home he takes the backseat to the wishes of his wife Jools Oliver and their daughters Poppy Honey, 6 ½, and Daisy Boo, 5 ½. “The wife is getting more and more control of the house and the two girls have got it all sewn up,” shared Jamie in a new interview, noting that “I work for them now. Did you know that? I work for Poppy and Daisy Oliver.” Part of that may come from the fact that “they think what I do is very insignificant and just take the mickey out of me. They are completely unimpressed by what I do. As they get older they are getting cheekier and funnier.”
Jamie may have another boss soon as he and Jools are expecting their third child in April! When asked about potential names for their baby, the 33-year-old reveals that “Jools has got the names all sussed and she won’t even tell me. She’ll probably call it something like Sunshine or Dewdrop.”
While coming up with the names, Jools is also experiencing a lot of cravings. According to her husband, “she has been through a lot of strange cravings. At the moment she is on a lot of everything. I can’t remember seeing her in the past week without something in her hand.” Cravings are nothing new for the former model, who “was chewing on rubber and having Marmite on bananas” when she was pregnant with Daisy.
After the birth of Daisy, creative Jamie decided that he wanted to take the placenta and make a meal out of it, but it wasn’t possible because “they have to take it and do tests on it.” A dejected Jamie says he had already written the recipe!
“I was going to do a chicken liver parfait with placenta, not liver. I was going to get all my mates round to wet the baby’s head and I wasn’t going to tell them — then show them a DVD of me making it afterwards. But Jools wouldn’t let me, she is too sensible.”
Jamie and Jools have been married since June 24, 2000.
