Who is Tana Ramsay?  

Cayetana Elizabeth Ramsay who goes by Tana, was born in Croydon and raised on a farm in Kent surrounded by chickens and cows. 

At 17, her family moved back to London where she went to school in Holland Park before training to be a Montessori teacher.

How did she meet Gordan?

According to an article in The Guardian, Tana, 49, was engaged to someone else before she met Gordan, 57, at a party on New Years Eve.

She didn’t much care for the TV chef, describing him as ‘a complete arrogant arse’. 

However when the two randomly bumped into each other – he kept a motorbike at a flat Tana shared with a mutual friend – that they started going out.

They married in 1996 when Tana was 21.

In July 2021, when clearing some old things out, Tana found her wedding dress and uploaded a video of herself twirling around in it. 

She captioned the pic: ‘Clearing out our home and unearthed my wedding dress- 25 years and 5 pregnancies later and happy to say it still fits #mamasstillgotit @gordongram’.

Many famous friends took to her comment section including David Beckham who wrote: ‘Wow’ followed by a red heart emoji.

Amanda Holden left a clapping hand and red heart emoji and her husband Gordan, was clearly impressed as he wrote ‘OMFG’ followed by a fire emoji.

Tana and Gordon have six children together.

Their first daughter, Megan, was born in 1998, followed by twins Holly and Jack in 2000 and daughter Matilda ‘Tilly’ in 2001.

In 2016, Tana suffered a miscarriage, which she has been very candid about over the years. She shared an emotional post on Instagram earlier this year, marking seven years since they lost their child they named Rocky.

The couple’s rainbow baby, son Oscar, was born in 2019.

Gordan announced the arrival of their sixth child, Jesse James Ramsay on his Instagram.

The celebrity chef, 57, posted a heartwarming photo of himself kissing his newborn on the head as Tana, 49, cradled him in her arms.

Sharing the announcement on Instagram, Gordon said the birth was an ‘amazing birthday present’, as his birthday is on November 8. They kept this latest pregnancy a secret.

The-mum-of-six has previously admitted to wanting  more kids telling Hello! magazine in 2021: ‘Do you know, the problem is that I so love babies but I think I’ll still be saying that when I’m in my 70s!’ 

She added: ‘I don’t think there’s ever a time when I’ll go, “Oh my god never, ever, ever again.”‘

‘But let’s just say I count my blessings and think I’m incredibly lucky. I’m just enjoying every single moment of this one.’
