Gordon Ramsay needed to ‘walk away’ after his son asked for a ‘little sister’ months after the celebrity chef became a dad for the sixth time.

The 57-year-old star and his wife Tana – who have daughter Megan, 25, twins Jack and Holly, 24, daughter Matilda (Tilly), 22, and four-year-old Oscar together – welcomed baby boy Jesse James into the world in November.

The idea of having more kids has crossed his mind, and he was certainly given food for thought by his kids.

‘This morning, Oscar said, “Wouldn’t it be nice if Jesse and I had a little sister?” And I spat my Cheerios out,’ he joked to People.

‘So yeah, I had to get up from the table and walk away… I didn’t wait to see Tana’s reaction.

‘I literally coughed my Cheerios out all over the table. So yeah, listen, who knows, right?’

Welcoming Jesse into the world has ”helped bring everyone closer’ in the family, particularly after Tana experienced a pregnancy loss at 20 weeks with their son Rocky.

Gordon – who revealed being a dad again in his late 50s is ‘keeping [him] younger’ – added: ‘We’re still super respectful and incredibly remorseful about losing Rocky. And so that was a significant moment in the family’s lives.

‘And so we tread with caution this time around and we were blessed. Jesse’s really helped bring everyone even closer.

‘And then that level of responsibility again, is just even more exciting. I want to be six times better as a dad than I was twenty-five years ago to Megan.’

The proud dad has spoken before about how his children will have to make it on their own without his money, promising not to give them enormous cash gifts.

He has now revealed that he would give his kids pocket money when they were younger – ‘every month, a couple hundred dollars.’

‘If they save that up across the 12-month period, I would match that at Christmas for them,’ he said on YouTube series Last Meals.

‘They got to stay true to their form by saving every dollar, and so when you start that practice, at sort of 10, 11, 12, 13, they got their part-time jobs, all of a sudden their minds are focused about their career paths.

‘That was the opposite way that I grew up. They are super disciplined and they are on it, man.’
