Jools Oliver has candidly revealed she's considering having IVF to help her conceive her sixth child.
Jamie Oliver's wife, 46, has tragically suffered five miscarriages – her latest of which was in lockdown last year.
Months on in a candid interview, Jules has revealed she "could have died" during her second heartbreaking miscarriage if she wasn't rushed into hospital because she lost so much blood.
Jools has explained how her tragic losses have made her more determined to welcome another child into the Oliver family.
The couple are proud parents to Poppy, 19, Daisy, 18, 12 year old Petal, 10 year old Buddy and River, five.
When asked about plans to have a sixth child, Jools told Life & Soul Podcast, in a preview heard by The Mirror: "Once you have these miscarriages you are always like, 'this baby is meant to be here, I have to keep trying'.
"So I have thought about IVF because having researched it and spoken to some amazing people, it seems like the right option for my age.
"But you know that's it's hard because also I've got a partner you know, I've got to think about him I'm not so sure he's that keen to do it that way. So I don't want to push anything, because I'm very lucky.
"I presume when I get to an age when I'm in the menopause. I will think actually 'thank God' I will feel relieved that it's not possible and I can just carry on with my life and you know, relax, because it's always in the back of your head, that's the problem."
Mum of five Jools, who previously discussed dreams of having a sixth child in 2018, revealed some people would think her hopes to have a sixth child were "selfish".
She insisted: "It's just imagining the baby in the blanket and it's all the lovely things that I've really cherished over the years.
"It is made much worse because Poppy is going to university and because I think, 'Oh, there you are, there's a room free, I'm sure that's a sign'.
"Now I've got the older and the younger (groups of children) and I've got River, I think you know just one more, life's all about pleasure that just gives me so much pleasure."
Jools also candidly discussed her second tragic miscarriage, where she began to bleed heavily while she was at the doctor having a breast check.
The TV chef's wife said she left the appointment hastily after almost fainting and got in the car to drive home but the bleeding wouldn't stop.
She recalled: "I was near the Portland (private hospital) and I thought I'm actually gonna drive to hospital.

"So I sat in the car and it was just getting heavier I thought okay I'm gonna die.
"So I phoned the Portland I begged them to come and get us, please come and get me because I'm bleeding," she said. "They were like 'if you can just walk' and I said 'bring an ambulance or do what you have to do' and this poor young girl came with a wheelchair up Marylebone High Street.
"Jamie arrived and he was like 'oh my god' it was like a murder scene. It's so visually hideous. I don't remember the rest. I must have almost passed out."
Jools admitted: "I mean, had I left it, had I taken the journey to go home and not the hospital I don't think I would have survived because it was so much blood loss."
