Salt Bae is a viral sensation. His unusual way of sprinkling seasoning onto meat has been turned into a million memes and has brought joy to the whole world.

It's now been revealed that he has a staggering nine children. That's a meme in itself.

Salt Bae (real name Nusret Gökçe) wrote: "The man who does not spend time with his family is not a real man."

The Turkish restauranteur is co-owner of steak house Nusr-Et.


The chain has six restaurants, including premises in Dubai and Turkey. He currently has a staggering 3.7million followers on Instagram, so he's popular AF.

I imagine this news will break the hearts of thousands of people, with many claiming to be 'in love' with him.

A big fan of Salt Bae is none other than Leonardo DiCaprio. He was recently snapped at one of his restaurants.

He looks mesmorised by Salt Bae's seasoning of his steak. So much so, that many people have been questioning if he was drunk at the time.

Salt Bae's got so popular that he's managed to get hold of his own steakhouse in New York, with rumours of other restaurants opening soon which will add to the six he already has.

The power of the meme, people.

So, in celebration of Salt Bae's achievements, here are our favourites:

Internet, never change.
