Celebrity chef and personality Jamie Oliver has been entertaining us with his cheeky antics on his cooking shows for years.
The man, who made his name on his cooking show The Naked Chef, is a business powerhouse: he has written a range of cookbooks, has his own cooking appliance line, a restaurant empire, hosts television shows and even has a YouTube channel. The chef also goes out of his way to campaign for kids to eat healthily in the UK and raises awareness for the importance of eating fresh and healthy foods.
More impressively, he manages to to balance all this with family life, making sure to spend time with his beautiful wife Jools and five children.
Let’s find out more about this inspirational dad:
Jamie and wife Jools recently welcomed River Rocket Oliver to his blossoming brood, and we say the family looks overjoyed!

Jamie has come a long way since his Naked Chef days. He now has a whole enterprise under his name!
Today is 17 years since the Naked Chef first broadcast on TV…thank you guys…. I read ALL your Comments from my post this morning…they were just amazing and heart felt, they gave me goose bumps and I smiled all day. Thank you …. A hell of alot has changed in cooking, publishing and broadcasting since I started on the BBC but the power food never fails to surprise me and inspire me, it's ability to give us pleasure, create and frame the best of memories with our nearest and dearest, and it's ability to energise and heal us……my most delicious meals have been made in some of the poorest community's, humble food made with love, but proof that one of our biggest luxuries in life might just be right infront of us "the Knowledge to cook " and it's free… as the 23 year old Naked Chef I remember a well known chef aggressively accusing me of compromising our profession because I was saying that anyone can cook ?? And how dare I as we train for so many years !?! Well anyone can cook, I stand by that to this day and he was a dick head anyway. If you can't cook please Don't leave it to long, life is way to short to eat shit every day ….Over the years I've met many many men in there 60's and 70's who just got into the joys of cooking and they all say the same thing with an empty look "why did I leave it so long jamie I get it now" …… Anyway if you get what I'm talking about you tag a friend who can't cook and YOU should take part in a special project I'm working on to keep you all more informed with the best global info on food and all the mad change happening right now go to http://www.jamiesfoodrevolution.org and sign up it takes 5 seconds ….

Guys right now David Cameron is working on his Obesity Strategy which, in my opinion, will set tone for how the UK responds to the biggest public health crisis of this generation. He absolutely must not under cook this and I want him, and all of YOU to know how important it is for our kids and grandkids. People are getting tired of miserable statistics about childhood obesity decade after decade. How long can it go on? guys hit the link in my bio read my recommendations to Mr Cameron and share and regram this video so that we make sure David Cameron knows how important this is! #foodrevolution
David Cameron will soon publish one of the most important reports of this parliament and, in my opinion, one of the most important pieces of strategy of the past 40 years. I really hope that the long-awaited child obesity strategy will lay down a battle plan to protect our youngsters’ health! Let's make sure the prime minster knows how important this is! #nochildhoodobesity #foodrevolution

You’d think with that much on his plate, Jamie wouldn’t have time for anything else, but he manages to be a loving father to his five children — Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela, Petal Blossom Rainbow, Buddy Bear Maurice and River Rocket Blue, who, by the way, have some of the most unique names we have seen in a while. (For more celebrities who looked to nature — in particular, animals — for inspiration to name their offspring, click here.)
We definitely think he’s made up of dad crush material through and through, don’t you?
