Gordon Ramsay's wife Tana Ramsay, 44, has been married to the Hell's Kitchen chef since 1996, and the couple share four children together – Megan, 21, 19-year-old twins Holly and Jack, and Matilda, 16. On New Year's Day, the Ramsay family announced that Tana was pregnant with her fifth child. Tana was born in Croydon, Surrey, and grew up on a farm in Kent. She worked for her dad, Chris Hutcheson, before training as a Montessori teacher. The doting mum is also keen on fitness and cooking, with her children famously revealing that they prefer her food to Gordon's. Tana has also made several TV appearances as a presenter on programmes including UKTV's Market Kitchen, and the 2010 series of Dancing on Ice.

Gordon Ramsay and Tana are expecting their fifth baby

When is Gordon and Tana Ramsay's baby due?

Gordon was recently asked by a fan on social media when his baby was due, to which is replied – in true Gordon fashion – that he was "stupid, but not that stupid." However, while the couple are keeping quiet for now, judging by Tana's blossoming baby bump they will be welcoming the new addition to the family around March or April time. Shortly after Gordon and Tana announced their pregnancy, the couple enjoyed a night out at a GQ dinner, and Gordon posed for photos putting a protective hand on his wife's bump.

Tana Ramsay's children

Tana is a doting mum to four grown up children – Megan, twins Jack and Holly, who turned 19 on New Year's Eve, and Matilda. Three out of four of the children are wishing to pursue different paths to their famous dad, while Matilda is following in Gordon's footsteps. The teenager has her own show, Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch, on CBBC, and has appeared with Gordon on cooking shows, as well as This Morning, where they featured in a segment, Big Chef, Little Chef. With the oldest three children at university, Tana recently admitted to HELLO! that the house was very quiet without them. She said: The house is very quiet today as Gordon is away filming so it’s just Tilly and I this week (along with the three dogs) but Jack and Holly are both home this weekend and I can’t wait to see them! We are lucky as they seem to be choosing to come home most weekends although that’s probably so I will do their washing!" Tana's middle daughter, Holly, looks to be following in the footsteps of family friend Victoria Beckham, as she is showing a keen interest in fashion. Gordon previously told The Telegraph that Holly would like to pursue a career in the fashion industry, and she recently joined him at David Beckham's Kent & Curwen fashion show.

Tana Ramsay's friendship with Victoria Beckham

Tana and Victoria Beckham are great friends, and the two families often spend the holidays together. In August, they celebrated Tana's birthday with a party at the Beckhams' Cotswolds mansion, complete with a personalised cake depicting her famous family. Both the Beckhams and the Ramsays both have four children close in age, and Gordon has previously joked that they are not allowed to date. Talking to TV magazine, he said: "Three girls and a boy, and three boys and a girl – you'd be amazed at the synergy. We've promised that no one dates anybody, and so far…"

Tana Ramsay's dad in prison

Tana's dad Chris Hutcheson was jailed for six months in 2017 after being found guilty of hacking into Gordon's email account between 2010 and 2011. The sentencing came six years after Gordon first accused his father-in-law of hacking his computers. Chris pleaded guilty to conspiring to unlawfully access Gordon Ramsay Holding Limited's systems. His sons Adam and Chris Jr were also involved in the illegal activity, and were each sentenced to four months suspended for two years. However, since the incident, Tana and her family have put it behind them, and her relationship with her dad is better than ever. In 2018, Tana was chatting to The Mail on Sunday's Life section, and asked whether she is in touch with her father. "Oh yes, absolutely," she answered.

Tana Ramsay on Dancing on Ice

In 2010, Tana took part in Dancing on Ice with professional skater Stuart Widdall. The couple were eliminated in the fourth week, but ahead of the series Tana said that she had promised Gordon another baby if she won the competition. Talking to The Telegraph, she joked: "Apparently I said I'd have a fifth baby if I got to the final. It must have been over Christmas when I'd had lots of mulled wine or something. Can you imagine?" Tana was also careful not to embarrass her children during her time on it. "I don't do cut-outs," she said of the revealing outfits. "I have four kids and my 12-year-old would be mortified if I went on the ice with bits cut out."
