Gordon Ramsay and his wife Tana has welcomed in the New Year by confirming some very special news.
The couple are expecting their fifth child, with Tana making the announcement in an Instagram video.
The 44-year-old mother-of-four is already showing a prominent baby bump, suggesting the newest member of the Ramsay family could be arriving quite soon.
In the video, the Ramsay family can be seen wishing viewers a ‘Happy New Year’, with big, conspiratory grins spread across all their faces.
His excitement palpable, 52-year-old Gordon can then be heard saying:
And guess what? Happy New Year because… we’ve got another one coming!
The famously straight talking chef can then be heard laughing delightedly as the camera pans across Tana’s bump, and his infectious joy cannot help but bring a smile.
The celebrity couple are already parents to Megan, 21, Matilda, 17, and twins Jack and Holly, 19, who can all be seen celebrating alongside their parents in the video.
People have rushed to send the famous family their warmest regards, thoroughly cheered up by this lovely start to 2019.

The happy news comes after Gordon and Tana suffered a late miscarriage in June 2016 – Tana had been five months pregnant.
Writing on Facebook at the time about their loss, Gordon wrote:
Hi guys, Tana and I want to thank you so much for your support over the past couple of weeks. We had a devastating weekend as Tana has sadly miscarried our son at five months.
We’re together healing as a family, but we want to thank everyone again for all your amazing support and well wishes.
I’d especially like to send a big thank you to the amazing team at Portland Hospital for everything they’ve done. Gx [sic]
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas lots of love from all the Ramsay’s x pic.twitter.com/VwiycV4xpE

Last month, Gordon and Tana celebrated 22 years of marriage, with Gordon sharing a lovely throwback pic of their wedding day on Instagram.
The couple often share happy moments from their family life on social media, with photographs showing them enjoying quality time with their children
Speaking with Hello! magazine in December, Tana spoke about the importance of getting her family together over the festive season:
Christmas in the Ramsay house is always a noisy chaotic time but I love it!
Gordon tries to engage all the children in dinner prep on Christmas Eve so we can really enjoy the time together on the day after a leisurely breakfast usually cooked by Gordon and Tilly.
The kids are older now so it’s more precious to get family time together as they are often out with their friends.
Congratulations to Gordon and Tana. No doubt this new addition is set to enjoy plenty of gourmet rusks and Michelin star worthy pureed banana.
