What do I do about a jealous 1yr old sibling?

I have 3 sons 10yrs 7yrs and 14mnths. I am due for my 4th son any day now. My concern is how my 14mnth old is going to react towards the new baby. He is the centre of everyones attention including my brother and his partner who are also having a baby in a months time. I have made it so the new born isnt at any time needing to be within reach of my 14th month old because im scared he might attack. He is quite rough with his hands. My 14 mnth old already gets jelous when I show any emotion towards other babies or kids, even his big brothers. I didnt have this problem with my oldest son at all if anything he protected his younger brother as he instincly does now for our 14mnth baby. I know my 14mnth will just demand everyones attention as he does now but I dont want him to not like his little bro or hurt him. What to do?
