57-year-old Ramsay was candid about becoming a father again at his age, “Extraordinary,” said, adding in good humor, “Really Extraordinary, just blessed. I’m also sure I’ll be the oldest dad at the drop-off at school, so I’ll keep my cap and glasses on.”

The couple welcomed their latest bundle of joy earlier this month, “What an amazing birthday present please welcome Jesse James Ramsay, 7lbs 10oz whopper!! One more bundle of love to the Ramsay brigade!! 3 boys, 3 girls…. Done 👊🏼❤️❤️,” Chef Ramsay took to social media to post his son’s pictures.

His wife, Tana Ramsay also took to social media to announce the arrival of her latest child. She wrote, “It’s been a nerve-wracking 9 months but we’ve made it and we have been blessed with this little bundle,” adding, “Ramsay family complete. Jesse James Ramsay we love you so much ❤️🙏🏼,” she wrote.

The couple lost who was intended to be their sixth child in 2016. At the time, the world-famous chef posted about the heartbreaking event. He began by thanking fans for the support they had shown him and his wife in the last few weeks. Then he revealed to them what had happened, he said, “We had a devastating weekend as Tana has sadly miscarried our son at five months.”

Four years later, Tana Ramsay finally opened up about what she went through. In November 2020, she spoke about the experience in an interview. This happened after Chrissy Teigen publicly shared the news of her own miscarriage in 2020 and was open and honest about the entire ordeal on social media. As a result of being so candid about the entire experience, she faced a lot of backlash.

Tana Ramsay went out of her way to support Chrissy Teigen and even praised her for her honesty. She said, “I find it very emotional and I thought she was amazing. When I read about her situation, I didn’t know the ins and outs, but certainly, a lot of it sounded incredibly similar to mine.”

She added, “It brings it all back and I think she was amazing for talking about it and posting the photos that she did.”

She recalled her own miscarriage and how people would tiptoe around the subject and pretend like it had never happened. She said, “I have to be honest when it happened to me, I found it really hard when people would talk to me and not mention it because it was like it never happened.”

“All I wanted to do was talk about it with friends, with family, with anyone who asked me about it because it was incredibly hard.” She added, “You go from having a baby kicking inside of you to suddenly it’s not there, and it was a really hard experience.”

She added how amazing Gordon had been throughout the ordeal. She said, “Gordon was amazing, and he’s always been one to talk about everything and he was very good at sort of talking it out of me and never making me feel that, ‘Oh, you know, maybe we shouldn’t talk about it’.”

In September 2023, Gordon Ramsay finally opened up about the loss of his son in 2016. They had named the child Rocky and were excited about him joining their family.

The 56-year-old celebrity chef said, “Losing Rocky was really tough. There’s no book or program you can watch that guides you through that loss.”

He shared how “life-changing” the entire ordeal had been. They went from one day celebrating the baby being healthy as Tana had some health issues to the next day when they discovered she had miscarried. All of it happened within 24 hours.

He said the heartbreaking event brought their family even closer together.

The couple later welcomed their fifth child, their son Oscar in 2019. And now they have welcomed their sixth child in 2023, saying they have completed their family now!
