He’s best known for his huge temper and outrageous outbursts on his TV shows, but Gordon Ramsay has showed off his softer side in a candid chat with The Mail On Sunday’s Event magazine.
The father-of-five revealed he was overcome with so much emotion when wife Tana gave birth to son Oscar in April he fainted.
“I’ve never, ever felt as vulnerable as I did when my son Oscar was born,” the 52-year-old chef revealed.
“I cried my f**king eyes out. All of a sudden you are nobody. You’re standing there looking at a team of experts who are saying, ‘Right. We’re going to look after you now, Tana.’ I was as white as a ghost. I fell back into the chair and I fainted. They said, ‘Tana’s fine. I think it’s you we need to look after next’.”
Baby Oscar is Gordon and Tana’s fifth child together and joins Matilda, Jack Scott, Megan Jane and Holly Anna. His arrival was announced on Instagram earlier in April.
While some parents and grandparents do everything in their power to keep their children off social media, Gordon and Tana have actually set their new son up with his very own Instagram page, where a series of photos of Oscar experiencing life have been posted.
In one beautiful image, little Oscar took his very first trip to the beach.
“Mummy took me to the beach for the first time today!! I loved it,” a caption read, alongside a photo of the baby snuggling up to his mother on the sand.
Fans couldn’t get enough of the sweet photograph. One person wrote: “I miss when mine were newborn. He is just precious.”
Another comment read: “He looks like his daddy.”
A third added: “Babies bring so much joy and unity. Enjoy your little man!”
Other photos show the bub snuggled up in a bathrobe after a bath and taking naps, while Oscar has already posed for his very first passport photo.
“Had my first photo shoot today,” another post read. “Can’t travel until I have a passport photo.”
