Gordon Ramsay could become a father for the sixth time later this year, as his wife, Tana, is keen to have another child.

The chef and TV star opened up about the possible new addition to the family, citing lockdown as the perfect time to expand the Ramsay clan.

The couple, who have been married since 1996, are parents to Megan, 22, twins Jack and Holly, 21, Tilly, 19, and 21-month old Oscar.

Speaking to US TV host Jimmy Fallon earlier this week, Gordon said: “Tana is asking for a sixth [child] across the lockdown because literally two hours ago our Prime Minister announced we are in lockdown until 15 February [at least].

"So she said we have good news: 'You are up late talking to Jimmy. Tomorrow night we go for number six!'"

He also revealed that he has high hopes for little Oscar to follow in his footsteps to become a chef one day, as none of his other kids plan to.

"Oscar, in my mind, is my last hope of getting anyone into the industry. Our eldest daughter is working in PR, Holly, our middle daughter, is doing fashion. Tilly is taking a gap year, Jack has become a Royal Marine. Everyone's left the nest and nobody wants to cook."

However, Gordon thinks he might only have himself to blame for them steering well clear of their dad's culinary path...

"I think they've been watching too many reruns of Kitchen Nightmares thinking 'f**k that, that's not my career!'"
