Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver is serving up something special...his fifth child with wife Jools!

According to Us Weekly, the British restauranteur didn't exactly plan for his family to get so big, but he's still super psyched about it!

"I thought we'd have a couple of kids but that's about it," Oliver said, adding: "Basically, I do what I'm told, but she's an amazing family maker and I just go with it. I love kids. My family keeps me honest. I have a weird job, a weird life, but my family keeps me quite real."

For her part, Jools had expressed a desire to add to their family as early as 2012, saying, "I want a fifth. But I know it would be wrong. I never get any time to spend with Jamie as it is. He has said give it a couple of years, then maybe we can think about it."

I so relate to how she feels. Even though I rarely have a moment to think, let alone spend quality time with my husband, I still want a fourth child. Badly.

I figure, how much crazier could it be than it is already? As it is, we'll have three teenage girls at the same time, like the Olivers.

The soon-to-be parents of five, who are quite keen on coming up with unique baby names for their brood, currently have four kids, who range in age from 13 to 5: Daisy Boo Pamela, Poppy Honey Rosie, Petal Blossom Rainbow, and Buddy Bear Maurice.

Can't wait to see what name they choose for baby #5!
