Gordon Ramsay Is 'Kept Up At Night' By Son DMing Girls On Social Media
| Last updated
For some people, just looking after ourselves can be a rocky road to navigate. Imagine having total authority when it comes to bringing up a kid. Now that sounds like a tricky task.
Dad-of-five Gordon Ramsay knows this all too well - especially when it comes to DMs on social media, which the 52-year-old says 'keeps him up at night'.
Gordon and his eldest son, Jack, 19, appeared on GQ's 'Like Father, Like Son' series to celebrate Father and Son Day (funnily enough) and if there's one thing they don't see eye to eye about it's Jack's use of social media.
When he was asked what keeps him up at night when it comes to parenting, Gordon explained that it's the 'charm' on social media from people who follow you.
In true Ramsay fashion he had to throw in an 'F' bomb when he said: "You think that these people following you are fans, I hate that word. They're not, they're f**king strangers."
He went on to ask Jack: "You don't message people?" There's no denying that the youngster hesitated and we all know what hesitation means...
Jack reassured his old man, telling him: "I don't think you need to worry, because you've taught me quite well when it comes to real friends, fake friends, you know, how to approach the issue of social media. I've been taught quite well."
Gordon confirmed his fears, saying: "So the one thing that keeps me up at night is Jack messaging individuals on social media." Oh, he's in trouble.
But Jack says it depends who the person messaging him is and then put things into perspective: "You're 19 years old, OK? This cool, good-looking, young girl messages you on Instagram, what are you going to do?"
He's got a good point.
That left Gordon only one option - the scare tactic - as he told his son: "That could be your mum's friend in disguise." Adding: "You never know, so just be careful, ok?"
We all know Jack's going to be asking for an immediate selfie from anyone and everyone he speaks to on Instagram from now on.
Things quickly turned to cooking after Jack was asked what he learned from his dad, explaining: "I know with you, football was your first love and it was heartbreaking when that ended but you know, your relentless nature and drive, you found cooking.
"You didn't stop until you got your three Michelin stars and you're still going."
Ramsay Senior quickly jumped in asking whether that means Jack wants to become a chef and his quick response said it all: "No".
