Gordon Ramsay Brags About His Teenage Kids, Including His Lookalike Son

If you ever watched Gordon Ramsay screaming at chefs on Hell's Kitchen or Kitchen Nightmares and thought, this man must be a father, you were right!

It figures that only an experienced parent would know how to put those misbehaving cooks in line the way Ramsay does.

In fact, the celebrity chef and his wife Tana have four children together: Megan, twins Holly and Jack, and Matilda.

Tough On His Kids, As Seen On TV

Megan, the oldest of the Ramsay bunch at age 20, is a psychology student who stays out of the limelight for the most part.

But Ramsay's teenage children are all following in their famous dad's footsteps.

Still, they're far from spoiled, as the master chef says his parenting style is "tough love."

"They don’t sit with us in first class," Ramsay joked about his kids.

"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."

He even claims that his children won't be getting a large inheritance when he dies.

"It's definitely not going to them, and that's not in a mean way," he said.

"It's to not spoil them. The only thing I've agreed with Tana is they get a 25% deposit on a flat, but not the whole flat."

Jack and Holly

Ramsay has a pair of fraternal twins, Jack and Holly, 18.

Jack is a dead ringer for his famous dad, which no one could resist pointing out when Ramsay shared a photo with him.

"Quick sea swim before dinner with my best mate!" he captioned the picture. "Cornwall at its best."

Jack is said to have inherited his dad's cooking skills, and has tagged along on some of his TV projects including MasterChef and The F Word.

But for now, he's concentrating on his education, and headed to university.

Meanwhile, his twin Holly has inherited more of her mother's DNA, and is an aspiring model.

Holly is also off to university this year, and Ramsay recently bragged about her grades on Instagram.

The chef said that he was "so proud" of both twins. “Dinner’s on me!”

Matilda the MasterChef

Matilda, 16, may be the youngest Ramsay, but her TV career already outshines her siblings.

The budding chef has learned from her famous dad since before she could walk, and has already appeared on MasterChef Junior, Hell's Kitchen, and her own children's show Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch.

While everyone in the Ramsay family has appeared alongside Gordon once or twice, Matilda will soon be headlining a new show alongside him.

On Big Chef, Little Chef, the pair will travel around the UK teaching young children how to cook.

Sounds like all four of Ramsay's children have a good head on their shoulders! Hopefully none of them inherited their dad's temper...
