Gordon Ramsay’s life story includes bitter chef feuds, a near-death experience, and tragic loss.
After achieving fame on Hell’s Kitchen and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, amassing a fortune, and settling down with wife Tana and their five children, TV chef Gordon Ramsay has certainly lived a colorful life.
Gordon Ramsay, 54, is the host of Kitchen Nightmares and a multi-Michelin-star chef.
After being raised by an alcoholic father, the famous chef had a difficult childhood, but he has moved on from his past.
However, Ronnie, his younger brother, has struggled with drug addiction throughout his life and was arrested for heroin possession in February 2007 after entering a supermarket on an island off the coast of Bali.
Gordon’s life took a 180-degree turn as he rose to fame on a number of cooking-related shows, married Tana, and welcomed five children into his sprawling London home.
In 1996, the Hell’s Kitchen star married Cayetana Elizabeth Ramsay, better known as Tana.
Tana has written several cookbooks and previously worked as a school teacher.
Tilly Ramsay, the youngest star of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, is one of the couple’s five children.
Megan (born in 1998), Holly (born in 1999), Jack (born in 1999), and Oscar (born in 2019) are their other children.
Megan ran the London Marathon in 2017 in honor of Tana, who had a miscarriage five months into her pregnancy the year before.
“If all had gone as we hoped yesterday 14/10/21 would have been our little boy Rocky’s 5th birthday, the day he was due not the day he was actually born when he was too little to survive,” Tana wrote on social media.
“We don’t think of him every day, but it wasn’t meant to be.”
“We have been blessed and will be eternally grateful, but our angel baby will always be remembered with a heart bursting with love and many tears.”
Gordon was an apprentice for Michelin-starred chef Marco Pierre White, but the two did not get along.
“After being yelled at by the hot-headed chef, Gordon crouched down in the corner of the kitchen, buried his head in his hands, and started sobbing,” Marco recalled.
Gordon later stated that of all the chefs, he despised “two-faced” Marco the most, even claiming that he resembled “someone from the Taliban.”
Marco was photographed holding The Sunday Times Magazine’s cover.
