Internationally renown chef, Gordon Ramsay is known for his awful temper and delicious cuisine. However, cooking is not the only important thing in his life.

The Michelin Star Chef is also a doting dad to five stunning children and a loving husband. The 52-year-old has been married to his wife, Tana Ramsay since 1996.

While their family appears to be completely perfect, their lives were not always easy. The pair actually struggled to have children at first.

Their Marriage and Difficulty conceiving:

Gordon met his future wife, Tana, in 1992. She was just 18 while he was already 26. Tana was dating Gordon's friend Tim, who is also a chef at the time. So even though she caught Gordon’s eye immediately, he waited to ask her out.

When her relationship ended with Tim, Gordon and Tana began seeing each other. However, it was not all smooth sailing and the pair found it very difficult to maintain their relationship with Gordon’s crazy schedule in the kitchen.

“I would work, come home, sleep, and wake up again when Gordon finished work," Tana previously told The Sun. “We'd meet up in the small hours. That was the only way we could be together, and we really wanted to be together.”

Their efforts paid off and the pair tied the knot in 1996 in London's Chelsea neighborhood. However, their relationship was once again tested.

First, Gordon had issues with the restaurant group that owned his Michelin-starred restaurant, Aubergine. Then the couple had difficulty conceiving.

IVF Journey:

Eventually, they decided to explore other avenues to conceive their first child. Luck seemed to be on their side with IVF treatment and they welcomed their first daughter, Megan, into the world in 1998.

11 months later, Tana got pregnant again via IVF. This time with twins Jack and Holly. Then, in 2001, Tana got pregnant naturally with their daughter Matilda. She was followed by their last son Oscar.

Besides growing up with the Beckhams as best friends but being banned from dating any of the Beckhams or the fact that none of them will inherit their father's fortune, here are some facts about the Ramsay children.

Gordon’s Attitude with His Family

Regardless of Gordon’s reputation for being intense and terrifying in front of the cameras, his family claim he is completely different with them.

"Gordon just loves winding people up. Absolutely loves it," Tana told The Telegraph. "You have to understand him to know what he’s like, and I understand him absolutely."
