Gordon Ramsay explained why he won't leave his eye-watering fortune to his kids

Gordon Ramsay explained why he won't leave his eye-watering fortune to his kids

He's one of several famous figures who isn't leaving their fortune to his kids

Gordon Ramsay and his wife Tana have welcomed a sixth child into their family, with the celebrity chef announcing the birth on social media yesterday (11 November).

Posting a picture of the new addition to the family on Instagram, Ramsay said the baby was called Jesse James.

He also noted that with the birth of their son they now had three boys and three girls, finishing off his message with the word 'done'.

Whether that means it'll be no more kids for Gordon and Tana or whether he's just referencing the word he likes to say when he's finished cooking up a dish remains to be seen, but the 57-year-old chef is understandably over the moon at getting a new family member.

However, while he'll grow up the son of a celebrity chef, little Jesse James is not going to see much of his father's fortune as Gordon has said that when he goes he won't be leaving it to his kids.

Gordon is one of a number of famous faces who've decided that their kids won't inherit their wealth, explaining that he and his wife Tana had worked out how much they'd be willing to give their kids.

"It's definitely not going to them, and that's not in a mean way, it's to not spoil them," he explained to the Daily Telegraph in 2017.

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

Ramsay, you might remember, recently got made fun of for his appearance on The High Performance Podcast where he spoke about getting some money for his first flat.

The chef said he'd gone to Tana's dad to ask for some money to put a deposit down as he was 'skint', only to be told 'sell your Porsche'.

As you can imagine, people didn't really think this was very relatable advice as the number of Porsche owners looking to take their first step on the property ladder is pretty low.

"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," he continued in his explanation of why his children won't get his money.

"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***ing menu with champagne. I am not embarrassed. It is my wife and I's choice to discipline them and to keep them real."

He later explained that he wants to instil a work ethic in his children, along with a lesson in the importance of earning their own way in life.
