Gordon Ramsay has confirmed he and wife Tana are expecting their fifth child. The celebrity chef revealed their happy news during an appearance on James Corden's The Late Late Show and admitted he's excited but a little apprehensive about becoming a father again.
The 49-year-old and Tana, 41, are already parents to Megan, 17, twins Holly and Jack, 16, and 14-year-old Tilly. Gordon dropped the bombshell when asked about how he's handling raising four teenagers.
He said: "We have three girls and a boy… and one more on the way."
Gordon Ramsay and wife Tana are expecting again!
The audience exploded into applause, before Gordon continued: "I'm a little bit nervous. The baby's due in September. Obviously I'll be happy with another girl… but four girls, four weddings, four sweet 16s and four boyfriends."
And, on the subject of boys, the hot-headed chef joked: "I'm fair. I think they should wait until they're at least 21."
When asked about his wife, Gordon insisted Tana is doing well and looking forward to expanding their family.
Host James, 37, shared a clip of Gordon's announcement on Twitter, and added: "Huge congratulations to @GordonRamsay and Tana on the news of a new baby on the way!"

Gordon and former school teacher Tana tied the knot at a Chelsea church in 1998, and she previously spoke out about her struggles to conceive during the early stages of their marriage.
Discussing getting pregnant with Megan, Tana told The Guardian: "I suffer from polycystic ovaries and Gordon has a low sperm count, which is probably down to the kitchen – the hours, the stress, the heat. So we had IVF, which made me feel like a complete failure."
Twins Holly and Jack were conceived via IVF when Megan was just 11 months old, but when Tana fell pregnant with Tilly it came as a complete surprise as she managed to do so without outside help.
Tana added: "I was so happy. I felt: I can do it. I did this by myself."
Congratulations to Gordon and Tana on their happy news!
