Gordon Ramsay refuses to let kids fly in first class with him under strict parenting rules

Gordon Ramsay refuses to let kids fly in first class with him under strict parenting rules

He and wife Tana have strict parenting rules for their five kids

Gordon Ramsay may be one of the biggest celebrity chefs in the business, but it turns out even his closest family members don’t automatically get a cut of his riches – including swanky first class travel.

Ramsay, 56, is dad to Megan, 25, twins Holly and Jack, 23, Tilly, 21, and Oscar, four, all of whom he shares with wife of 27 years, Tana.

He has often spoken out about how he has not only enforced a series of very strict rules for his five kids have to follow, but also how they’re not getting any of his fortune.

The Hell's Kitchen star, who has never been 'turned on about the money', told the Telegraph back in 2017 that he has no intentions of passing on money to his children that they didn't earn.

"It's definitely not going to them, and that's not in a mean way, it's to not spoil them,” he said.

“The only thing I've agreed with Tana is that they get a 25 percent deposit on a flat, but not the whole flat.”

And this mentality extends to travel, too, as he chooses not to let his offspring luxe it up in first class - not just because he prefers to 'keep it real' with them, but also because he doesn't see any point in allowing younger kids to enjoy the frills of luxury flights.

He continued: "No. I have got to keep it real with the kids, and also I think just getting kids at the age of five, six and seven, used to first class and those big seats, they do not need the space, they get entertainment on their iPads.

"So I like to think about what you can do with the money when you land, rather than paying out thousands of dollars for eight, nine ten-year-olds to sit in first class.

"I do not want them sat there with a 10 course f**king menu with champagne. I am not embarrassed. It is my wife and I's choice to discipline them and to keep them real."

Ramsay is clearly determined to make sure his kids work for their money and don't get a leg-up from their dad – clearly not one to let his kids fall under the 'nepo baby' umbrella.

Speaking on US Radio in 2019, he explained: "I'm firm, I'm fair and I will give you everything I've got to get you to the very top. And that's it, no bulls**t.

"I take a lot of flak for being straight and honest, but I'm not worried about that f***ing snowflake generation.

He added: "It's like not employing the kids. I don't want the staff thinking, 'F**k it's Ramsay's kid, we can't tell them off'.

"You want to work in this business? You f**k off to another chef, learn something different and come back with something new to improve the business."
