It's a girl for Jamie, Jools Oliver

Culinary pioneer Jamie Oliver welcomes his third child with wife Jools.
TV chef Jamie Oliver has become a dad for the third time, after wife Jools gave birth to another baby girl last week.

The celebrity couple welcomed daughter Petal Blossom Rainbow on April 3rd, weighing in at six pounds and ten ounces.

According to a representative for the proud new parents, both mother and baby are doing well.

"Jamie and Jools are both completely smitten with Petal already and Jamie is looking forward to two weeks' paternity leave to spend quality time with his four beautiful girls," the source announced.

The Naked chef, 33, tied the knot with former model Jools back in June 2000, after seven years of dating. The new arrival joins big sisters Poppy Honey, seven, and Daisy Boo, who turns six this week.

Jools, who has spoken openly about her experience with IVF and difficulty conceiving, previously revealed hopes for another little girl earlier in the pregnancy.

Hmm. Didn't Jamie say he was sure it was a boy because he used certain positions, but if it wasn't he would keep going until he got a boy. Congrats to them, I am sure she is a lovely baby.
