“I’ve never been really turned on about the money. That’s not my number one objective, and that’s reflected in the way the kids are brought up.”
He will not be leaving them any of his graaaaaaand fortune!
“It’s definitely not going to them, and that’s not in a mean way; it’s to not spoil them…I’ve been super lucky, having that career for the last 15 years in the US. Seriously, it has earned a fortune and I’ve been very lucky, so I respect everything I’ve got.”
But this focus on his children working for their own money is put into practice now. He doesn’t even let his kids join him in first class!
“They don’t sit with us in first class. They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that. At that age, at that size, you’re telling me they need to sit in first class? No, they do not. We’re really strict on that. I turn left with Tana and they turn right and I say to the chief stewardess, ‘Make sure those little f—— don’t come anywhere near us, I want to sleep on this plane’. I worked my f—— arse off to sit that close to the pilot and you appreciate it more when you’ve grafted for it.”
Honestly, it’s probably for the best even though if we were Gordon Ramsay’s kids, our reaction would be a little something like this…
