Before Gordon Ramsay launched his empire, he had trained with some of the world's leading chefs, such as Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon in France and Albert Roux and Marco Pierre White in London.

His career started n 1998 when he opened a kitchen in his name, and he went on to become a TV personality for different cooking shows including, but not limited to, "Masterchef."

Two years before he opened his restaurant, he married Montessori-trained schoolteacher Tana, who later became a bestselling cookbook author and a TV presenter.

The couple has five children in whom they have instilled work ethics. Even though their time together may be limited, Gordon knows it is quality time.

The couple welcomed their first child, Megan, on May 16, 1998. She is an account executive but studied psychology at Oxford Brooks University.

Their second child, Holly, was born on January 1, 2000. Rather than follow her father into the kitchen, she took a fashion course at Ravensbourne University in London and has modeling contracts with various agencies.

Jack, their third child, is Holly's fraternal twin. He played rugby in high school, has played water polo, and studied Jiu-Jitsu. He attended Exeter University and joined the Royal Marines in 2020.

Following in Gordon's footsteps in the kitchen is his fourth child, Matilda, born on November 8, 2001. Popularly known as Tilly, she presents "Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch" alongside her family.

She is also the author of "Matilda & The Ramsay Bunch: Tilly's Kitchen Takeover" and says she's not allowed in her father's Michelin-star restaurants.

Their fifth child, Oscar, was born on April 4, 2019, and Gordon believes this is the last chance for one of his children to become a chef like him.

While Gordon may come across as tough on his shows, he said his wife is very disciplined, and when the children have been naughty, she shows off that side of her, and it's hilarious.

Even though she's a schoolteacher, they both agreed on how work would be. He said,

"So we decided that I'm going to work like a donkey and provide amazing support for the family."

By working hard, Gordon has been able to buy three beautiful homes. And it is one of these houses that his neighbors harshly criticized.

INSIDE GORDON'S 'MONSTROSITY' BEACHSIDE HOME

In 2015, Gordon bought an over 5 million dollar five-bedroom 1920s clifftop home in Rock, Cornwall, and demolished it to build two homes.

It was the second most expensive property sale ever recorded in Cornwall when he bought the property. The Council granted Gordon planning permission to replace the original property with the main house and a smaller second one.

This infuriated the residents who wrote to Cornwall Council to complain that the second house, called 'The Garden House,' would spoil the designated area and damage other residents' view of the shore.

When it was in the building stage, the neighbors called the property a 'monstrosity.' They said it looked like a 'stack of containers,' and one of them took to social media to say Cornwall now had 'Legoland.'

Gordon's main house has two kitchens, five bedrooms, and four en-suite bathrooms, while 'The Garden House' is a three-bedroom property with a dining area and a living room.

After purchasing the property, they invested another 2 million dollars in renovating, thereby adding a boathouse, wine cellar, and an infinity swimming pool.

The main house has large windows all over and offers views of the beach where Gordon and his family usually take walks. His bedroom has a king-sized bed he sometimes shares with Oscar.

Their spaciously designed living room features blue couches and furniture, while its ceiling has a huge diamond chandelier as its decoration.

When Gordon is not raiding the fridge with Oscar, he spends time in the kitchen where he makes the magic happen or records his YouTube videos.

In an Instagram post, Gordon unveiled a view of his infinity pool after taking a walk with Oscar. In the second slide of the post, he carried Oscar on his neck, posing in front of the pool.

TWO MORE HOUSES

Tana once revealed that Gordon always loved the seaside making, Cornwall one of the few places where the chef can properly switch off. She said,

"It's the place where I see Gordon truly relax, and the lack of a phone signal is an absolute blessing."

His obsession with the sea also takes him out on fishing trips where he spends hours fishing or sits on the dunes. Their children also love to sit in the estuary and have fun.

While he was building his family home, he bought another property in Cornwall for him and his family. The second property he bought is a beach house in a nearby village called Trebetherick, near Daymer Bay.

The stone-built mansion featured six bedrooms, two kitchens, four en-suite bathrooms, and a spacious outdoor area where Gordon addressed his fans during the lockdown.

His third property in Cornwall, which he put up for sale, can sleep ten people over three stories. The grade II luxury coastal holiday home was a former Lloyds bank building.

The property, with high ceilings, features four bedrooms, modern interiors, beautiful sash windows, a waterside garden room, original fireplaces, and a light-filled open-plan entertaining space.

The beautifully designed kitchen has shaker-style cabinets, a communal seating area, a breakfast bar, and views overlooking the glistening harbor.

They finished the smart contemporary house with intricate attention to detail while elegantly designing the interior to enhance modern-day living.

The Fowey property also features a garden kitchen and an alfresco dining area. The private outdoor deck offers beautiful views of the river.

After the renovations, Gordon put up the property for rent to holidaymakers for over five thousand dollars a week.
