Are Jools and Jamie Oliver finally finished having children?

The celebrity chef welcomed baby number five, River Rocket, into the world in August and it seems five might be the magic number for the Oliver clan.

Jamie says his “family feels complete” now that little Rocket is here.

When asked by heat magazine whether he and Jools would consider baby number six, he was quite sure in his reply: “I really don’t think so.”

But then, the chef admits he didn’t ever think his family would be this big in the first place.

“Personally I never thought I’d have more than two kids, but our family feels very complete now.”

And he took the moment to heap praise and love on his gorgeous wife.

“I’m grateful that Jools is such a brilliant mum,” the 41-year-old said.

Meanwhile, Jools has been the subject of internet backlash after she posted a photo of herself showing off her post baby body.

“Finally ‘almost’ fitting into these gorgeous trousers,” the new mum said after giving birth to her child on August 8.

While she received some love from her followers, others were less than impressed.

“I am currently pregnant with my 2nd baby,” one follower said. “And every minute of every day I’m scruitinising my weight.

“Pictures like this DO NOT HELP!”

She continued: “Shouldn’t you be more concerned with bonding with your child rather than how quickly you fit back into your jeans?”

But Jools wouldn’t take the comment lying down, instead choosing to respond with grace. She said the post was meant as a “shout out” to the designers who were kind enough to send her the clothes.

“Honestly it’s about the trousers!!! I didn’t even think about the weight!!!” She wrote in a reply to the post. “For god sake I still have heaps to lose… my T-shirt hides a lot.”

“The waist of the trousers is elasticated!!!! So prob would have fitted when I was 9 months pregs! As for bonding with my baby… I feel no need to address this ridiculousness.”

Meanwhile, proud papa Jamie has been keeping fans happy by posting several sweet pics of his newest addition.

The latest shows a happy Jamie holding a serious looking River.

“Morning folks, have a cracking day,” the chef said.
