How old is Jools Oliver, is she on Instagram, when did she and Jamie meet and who are their children?

JAMIE OLIVER and his wife of nearly 20 years Jools have five children – who presumably never mind staying in for dinner when their dad is around…

Here we take a look at his wife whose maiden name was Juliette Norton, how their love story began and their fabulous house…

Jools is 43-years-old and was born Juliette Norton before saying 'I do' with her long-term partner Jamie-she's always been better known by her nickname Jools.

She is a regular Instagrammer and posts regular updates about her home and family life at @joolsoliver.

Jools and Jamie are childhood sweethearts and met growing up in Essex.

They wed in 2000, and now have five children, Petal Blossom, seven, Poppy Honey, 15, Daisy Boo, 14, Buddy Bear, seven, as well as River Rocket, 1.

The pair met when they were just 17, and she previously revealed he went all out to woo her.

She posted on Instagram that she had found a stack of love letters he sent to her when she went to Japan for three months as a teen.

She said: "When I was 17 I worked in Tokyo for three months and every single day Jamie sent me a letter or a fax without fail! These are only half of them… brought back just the best and happiest memories."

Jools sent fans wild after sharing a series of snaps of the plush Grade II home she shares with Jamie and their children on Instagram.

Having splashed out a reported £8.9 million on the property – which is located in the suburbs of Hampstead – it's no surprise she was quick to give her followers a glimpse of the opulently bedecked property.

She uploaded a picture of the couple's son Buddy, seven, sprawled out on her lavish Louis XV bed with his boots on.

"That is one hell of a bed!!" one fan remarked, before a plethora of others described the palatial furnishing as being that of "bed goals".

Other snaps show Buddy playing on an antique grand piano in a room that is lined with huge windows and an entire wall filled with photos of the children.

Another picture depicts River Rocket, one, sitting upright in a huge, free-standing bath, complete with a his-and-hers sink, though it's just one of many bathrooms in the property, which also boasts three full bathrooms and two half bathrooms.

Jools and Jamie moved to their Hampstead home after selling up their Primrose Hill property, which saw them merge two homes together to form a ten-bedroom pad.

However, the couple were forced to detach the two houses again in 2016 after it failed to sell at its renovated size.

Among their former neighbours were David Walliams, actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson and his director wife Sam, as well as radio DJ Chris Evans.

The pair also own a home in Clavering, Essex, which is where Jamie's parents' pub, The Cricketers, is based.

Jools has her own kids clothes range at Mothercare called Little Bird.

The collection covers newborns to 8-year-olds, and "each piece is designed with children in mind and children who want to have fun."

Many of the pieces are unisex so can be shared between siblings, and there is also an equally gorgeous homeware line that gives children a pop of colour in their bedrooms.” target=”_blank” title=”Click to share on Twitter
