You all probably know Gordon Ramsey, the foul-mouthed chef who always keeps it real. Despite his not-so-approachable personality, he has managed to steal the hearts of many fans through his dedication, principles, and no-nonsense attitude.
And it looks as though he employs the same sort of no-nonsense attitude with his family as well.
The British chef is a father of four (soon to be five) along with his wife Tana. Considering his wealth and fame, one would think that his kids would be set for life, especially his daughter Matilda, 17, who is a young chef of her own. But a while back, he claimed that he would not be handing anything to his children on a platter (pun intended), and they would have to make their own way through hard work. He also said once that he doesn’t buy his kids first class tickets because “they haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that,” adding that it is a waste for kids who are six or seven to have those big seats since “they do not need the space, they get entertainment on their iPads.” Which is fair I guess…
the way Gordon Ramsay acts when he inspects restaurants in Kitchen Nightmares is the same way my mom acts when she looks in my room before I clean it.

Now, on a recent interview with the Daily Mail, the chef said that he expects his kids to go and get a job without his help to learn the necessary skills to improve the business.
“I don’t want the staff thinking: “F*ck it’s Ramsay’s kid, we can’t tell them off,” he said. “You want to work in this business? You f*ck off to another chef, learn something different and come back with something new to improve the business.”
He continued: “I’m firm, I’m fair and I will give you everything I’ve got to get you to the very top. And that’s it, no bullsh*t. I take a lot of flak for being straight and honest but I’m not worried about that f*cking snowflake generation.”

Other than his work ethic, he also talked about a recent tragedy in their family which has made him appreciate them more. His partner Tana, who is currently pregnant with their fifth child, previously suffered a miscarriage. Ramsey said: “It has brought us all so much closer. You realize how lucky you are and you reflect on what you have, how fortunate you are with your remaining children and you remind yourself of what you’ve got. It’s made the family unit even tighter.”
