British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools are expecting their third child, PEOPLE has confirmed.
“Jamie and his wife Jools are over the moon with the news,” says Oliver’s rep. “The due date is in April.”
Oliver, known in the U.S. for his cooking show The Naked Chef, and his wife Juliette (who goes by Jools) already have two daughters, Poppy, 6, and Daisy, 5.
The couple, both 33, first met during high school in Essex, England and married in 2000. Chef Oliver cooked the wedding banquet.
Amid writing successive cookbooks, in 2004 Oliver turned the heat up on the unhealthy food given to schoolchildren in Britain, resulting in a countrywide overhaul of lunchtime menus.
