Gordon Ramsay has spoken out about his wife Tana’s heartbreaking miscarriage of their son in her fifth month of pregnancy.
The celebrity chef has spoken to the Daily Mail Weekend magazine revealing the incredible support his family has received from fans and celebrity friends.
Gordon announced the devastating news back in June with a post on his Facebook explaining that his wife, Tana, had miscarried.
Now, he’s opened up about the effect it’s had on their family and how fellow chef Jamie Oliver and wife Jools were among the first to reach out.
Gordon, 49, explained, ‘the support we’ve had has been unbelievable’, and spoke about how this difficult situation has opened his eyes to the reality that this happens to many families.
He continued, ‘You don’t realise until it happens to you how many people are affected. Sadly it happens every day.’
But luckily the Ramsay family has been flooded with support, from fans as well as their friends in the celebrity world too.
‘Jamie and Jools were among the first to reach out and send their sympathy. Victoria and David have been amazing. They came to see Tana and me immediately and showed their support, and that was mind-blowing.’
Known for his straight-talking attitude, the Hell’s Kitchen star has tried to take a positive outlook at this sad time, supporting his family and becoming closer.
‘Friends have rallied and we’ve got through it together, as a family. We were devastated, but thankfully we’re through the worst now. It could happen at any time to anyone. It has brought us all so much closer.’
Being a father of four, Gordon has been able to use the tragedy to bring him close to his children Megan, 18, twins Holly and Jack, 16, and Tilly, 14.
‘You realise how lucky 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.’
