Jamie Oliver's best dad moments in pictures

Jamie Oliver is the proud dad to five children with his wife Jools, so it's safe to say the celebrity chef knows a thing or two about fatherhood. The TV star regularly shares photos of his brood on Instagram, of Poppy Honey, 15, Daisy Boo, 14, Petal Blossom, eight, Buddy Bear, six, and baby River Rocket, who turns one in August.

It's clear that his family are his priority, and when he is away from home, Jamie regularly lets fans know that he's missing his wife and children. Jamie recently admitted to HELLO! Online that he has always followed a strict schedule to balance work with his home life.

"Since Poppy was born, I just have to start at five, finish at 10 at night, Monday to Friday," said Jamie, 42. "I have my structured holidays, my structured weekends, and I try to be a good boss and a good dad." Another tip from the food guru? "If you want to do lots of things well, surround yourself by amazing women, end of story!" he said.

From the day he welcomed his fifth child River, to dressing up as a Stormtrooper for Star Wars Day (and no doubt embarrassing his daughters!), click through to see our favourite Jamie Oliver dad moments…
