Gordon Ramsay’s incredible fears at becoming dad at 57 following birth of sixth child
| Last updated
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has become a father for the sixth time, confirming over the weekend that his wife Tana had given birth to a baby boy.
The couple had kept the pregnancy from the public for nine months, before Gordon, 57, announced the birth of their son on Instagram on Saturday (11 November).
He captioned the post: "What an amazing birthday present please welcome Jesse James Ramsay, 7lbs 10oz whopper!!
"One more bundle of love to the Ramsay brigade!! 3 boys, 3 girls…. Done."
Jesse has made it six kids in total for the Ramsay family, with Gordon and Tana already parents to Megan, 25, twins Holly and Jack, 23, Tilly, 22, and Oscar, aged just four.
However, back in September of this year, Ramsay appeared on the podcast Dish, hosted by Nick Grimshaw and Angela Hartnett, and spoke about his five children and his reluctance at welcoming a sixth.
"I've got a little secret… Tana wants another one," he said.
The chef went on to explain his perceived resistance at having another child, joking that his family might need 'two buses' to take his kids around.
Ramsay continued: "And secondly, I’m going to be the oldest [expletive] at school. 'Who’s your grandad?' And what about sports day? The egg and spoon race. What am I going to do?"
However, at the end of his explanation, the 57-year-old said: "So, I'd love another one, but no, five is enough for now."
It's not clear when exactly the podcast episode was recorded, but based off these comments, nobody was expecting the Ramsay family to expand in the next few months.
Though in 2021, Tana admitted that she would still want kids in her 70s.
"Do you know, the problem is that I so love babies, but I think I'll still be saying that when I'm in my 70s!" she confessed.
Tana's dream may not have come true yet, as she is currently 49, but with Gordon ending his heartfelt Instagram post with the word 'done', she may need to settle with six kids.
Though little Jesse is the son of one of the most famous - and richest - celebrity chefs in the world, Gordon has previously admitted that he will not share his fortunes with his kids once he is gone.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph in 2017 about his inheritance, Gordon explained: "It's definitely not going to them, and that's not in a mean way, it's to not spoil them.
"The only thing I've agreed with Tana is that they get a 25 percent deposit on a flat, but not the whole flat."
