Initially shared by author Matt Haig, Jools dedicated the an inspirational post, “To my kids” which read, "Never be cool. Never try to be cool. Never worry what cool people think. Head for the warm people. Life is warmth. You'll be cool when you're dead."

Jools and Jamie have been married for 21 years and share five children together, Poppy, 19, and Daisy, 18, Petal, 12, as well as sons Buddy, 11, and River, five.

Earlier this year, the children's clothes designer opened about her hopes to expand her family, and admitted on a podcast called Life & Soul with Zoe Clark-Coates that she is considering IVF after having tragically suffered five miscarriages in the past.

"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," she shared.

"But you know that 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."
