It’s been a big month few weeks for the Ramsay family, whose children Tilly, 16, and twins Jack and Holly, 18, picked up their GCSE and A level results respectively. And what better way to celebrate than hang around with Brooklyn Beckham!
Well not just Brooklyn but parents David and Victoria and siblings Romeo, Cruz and Harper.
When I got my GSCE (just the one) I went to McDonald’s. There’s no punch line here. I just ate a Big Mac with some fries and then went home.
Ramsay and his partner Tana made sure their kids Matilda, 16, Jack and Holly, 18, and Megan, 19, had a little bit more of a celebration than a visit to fast food restaurant.
Victoria Beckham uploaded a picture to Instagram of the two families celebrating not only a successful graduation for the kids but also Tana’s birthday.
She wasn’t quite the centre of attention, however. Her son Jack was. Why? Why do you think? He’s Gordon Ramsay without the leather face.
‘Good God that young Ramsay the image of his dad [sic]’ one commenter said.
‘Gordon’s lad is the spit of him. Happy families,’ another wrote.
I mean, no-one can argue with that can they? Young Jack possibly looks like Gordon Ramsay more than the man himself.
The veteran chef and professional angry-person recently said he doesn’t want his kids to be spoilt and teaches them the benefit of hard graft. So before you get annoyed at this picture, just take on board that Jack probably has about £4 in his pocket.
Speaking to the Telegraph, Gordon said:
Last time we went to Royal Hospital Road [Ramsay’s three Michelin starred flagship restaurant in Chelsea] was for Megan’s 16th birthday, and that was the first time we’ve ever eaten there with the kids.
They have served the Chelsea pensioners there for Christmas lunch, but not eaten there.
They don’t sit with us in first class. 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.
I turn left with Tana and they turn right and I say to the chief stewardess: “Make sure those little f*ckers don’t come anywhere near us, I want to sleep on this plane.”
I worked my f*cking arse off to sit that close to the pilot and you appreciate it more when you’ve grafted for it.
The 50-year-old chef has homes in Wandsworth, south London, LA, and Cornwall.
Despite all the money he’s made, he remains careful to keep his kids grounded and makes sure they earn their own money, do charity work, and learn to budget.
Meg’s at uni and has a budget of £100 a week; the others get about £50 a week and they have to pay for their own phones, their bus fare.
The earlier you give them that responsibility to save for their own trainers and jeans, the better.
They all cook as a life skill as opposed to a career. I never want to put that onus on them. I don’t want them with a badge, going into a kitchen [with people] thinking that’s Ramsay’s daughter or that’s Ramsay’s son.
On a morbid note, Ramsay also revealed his fortune will not be going to his kids in his will.
It’s definitely not going to them, and that’s not in a mean way; it’s to not spoil them.
The only thing I’ve agreed with Tana is they get a 25 per cent deposit on a flat, but not the whole flat.
Being a celebrity offspring doesn’t look so easy-peasy suddenly does it?
