Gordon Ramsey shared with The Telegraph in 2017 that he would not be leaving his almost 80 million dollar inheritance to his children. Ramsey joins an ever-growing group of celebrities in his decision including Sting and Warren Buffet.
Ramsey also revealed that his children do not get to indulge in the same luxuries their father does. His five children do not get to eat at Michelin-star restaurants or sit in first class with him, Ramsey says. They haven’t worked hard enough to earn those experiences according to Ramsey. This is all in an attempt to not spoil his children Ramsey explained.
Ramsey and his wife, Tana, share five children, Megan, 24, twins Holly and Jack, 23, Tilly, 21, and two-year-old Oscar.
Megan was the first in her family to graduate from college. The 24-year-old attended Oxford Brookes University and currently works at a PR company. Twins Holly and Jack work as a mental health advocate and joined the Royal Marines, respectively. Ramsey has publicly praised his children for their accomplishments.
Ramsey’s daughter Tilly decided to join her father in the entertainment field by starting a tv show titled “Matilda and the Ramsey Bunch” which is a children’s cooking channel featured on the BBC.
The last of Ramsey’s children who could follow in their father’s cooking legacy is two-year-old Oscar. “They needed to find their passion, and I couldn’t be prouder knowing that they have,” he told British GQ. “I suppose my son Oscar is my last hope of having a chef in the family. I’ve started putting him to bed with a f***ing whisk and ladle.”
“He starts off with beautiful oatmeal in the morning with caramelized banana,” Ramsay told Fallon. “I’ll do him a little light scrambled egg on toast for lunch, and then for dinner tonight he had a roasted butternut squash soup!”
