Gordon Ramsay is a well-known chef, especially for his high food standards and his harsh talking manner. He has his own TV production company, a number of restaurants named after him, and many best-selling books. But it looks like Ramsay’s achievements might not be cool enough for his children. He once joked that his kids only want to talk to him because he knows a particular celebrity.

Who are Gordon Ramsay’s kids?
Tana Ramsay, who is a schoolteacher and TV personality, is married to Gordon Ramsay. They got married in 1996.
They have five kids: Megan, who was born in 1998; Jack and Holly (twins), who were born in 2000; Matilda, who was born in 2001; and Oscar, who was born in 2019.
The three daughters of Ramsay are well-known on social media. For example, Meghan and Holly have more than 200,000 followers on Instagram. Matilda, who is also known as Tilly, has more than 600,000 Instagram followers and more than 4 million TikTok followers.
Gordon Ramsay jokes that his kids only talk to him because of his 1 celebrity connection.
Except for Oscar, who is only one year old, Ramsay’s kids are all adults now, and it seems to take Ramsay a lot more to impress them.
The famous chef told People that his daughters only want to talk to him because he knows supermodel Gigi Hadid. He said,
My daughters, they love me. It’s not because I’m a f—- good chef. They love me because I talk to Gigi Hadid. That’s the only reason why they want to talk to me.
Ramsay and Hadid met for the first time on Masterchef Celebrity Showdown in 2016. Since then, Ramsay has kept in touch with Hadid and has even said in public that Hadid is a good cook.
I remember when she first came on ‘MasterChef’ and we had an amazing couple of days cooking together,
Ramsay told Insider.
She has one of the most articulated palates on the planet… She uses that travel to her strength in a way that she educates her palate. The countries she visits – she gets incredibly involved with their cultures.
What is Gordon Ramsay’s parenting like?
Ramsay is known for yelling at people on shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmare, so it makes sense that he would be a strict parent.
Gordon Ramsay has said that he tries hard not to spoil his children. For example, Ramsay has made a lot of money over the course of his life, but his kids won’t get much of it.
[My money is] definitely not going to them [my kids], and that’s not in a mean way; it’s to not spoil them,
he told the Telegraph.
The only thing I’ve agreed with Tana is they get a 25 percent deposit on a flat, but not the whole flat.
Ramsay also doesn’t let his kids fly in the first-class cabin. He shared,
They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that. At that age, at that size, you’re telling me they need to sit in first class? No, they do not. We’re really strict on that.
Even though Ramsay can be strict with his kids, it seems like the family still gets along well. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Ramsay, his wife, and his children were in quarantine together.
People magazine quotes Ramsay sharing the experience of the family being brought closer, saying,
We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve fallen in love, we’ve fallen out of love, and we came out of it so much stronger together. There’s a level of closeness like we’ve never had before.
