Jamie Oliver tells Woman about his love for wife Jools, and exactly how he keeps track of his family at all times.
He’s the country’s best-selling cookbook author and one of TV’s most popular chefs. away from the screen, Jamie oliver runs a restaurant empire and is also a busy dad to five children – Poppy, 16, Daisy, 15, Petal, 10, Buddy, nine, and two-year-old River – with wife Jools, 43.
Woman sat down with Jamie, 43, at his London HQ for a chinwag about being a so-called ‘weekend dad’ and his worst habit…
‘I don’t think that being a weekend dad is that weird. Actually, I think I’m a full-time dad, it’s just that I’m physically active with the kids at the weekends and the holidays. Probably 95% of Britain is the same – I don’t know how many dads or working parents are home for dinner five days a week. In my company we have flexible hours for staff and we’re very conscious of parents’ needs, but because I’m the boss I’ve got a few more things to do. I go in quite early and finish late most days. Sometimes, the kids drop in – my daughter Poppy came into the office to open her GCSE results. I’d never seen her smile like that.’
