Gordon Ramsay’s children won’t be living off their father’s fortune.
The celebrity chef, who is worth $140million, is careful to make sure he doesn’t “spoil” his three daughters and one son.
“It’s definitely not going to them, and that’s not in a mean way; it’s to not spoil them,” he told The Telegraph. “The only thing I’ve agreed with Tana is they get a 25% deposit on a flat, but not the whole flat.”

Gordon revealed that it’s important to him that his children learn the value of hard work, and they certainly don’t get to live the high life when travelling as a family.
“They don’t sit with us in first class. They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that,” he said. “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**kers don’t come anywhere near us, I want to sleep on this plane.’

“I worked my f**king arse off to sit that close to the pilot and you appreciate it more when you’ve grafted for it.”
Gordon added: “They have a completely different life than I did growing up. I worked my arse off to get out of the s**t mess that I grew up in and they’re grateful, they’re not spoiled.”
The Hell’s Kitchen star’s eldest daughter Megan is at university, and gets an allowance of £100 a week, while younger children Matilda, Jack and Holly get £50 a week, and Gordon says they have to “pay for their own phones” and “their bus fare”.
