The video shows the children wishing viewers a happy new year before reaching Tana, who also makes the pronouncement, before revealing her bump, confirming their next child.
“And guess what … Happy New Year because we’ve got another one coming. Oh my lord, oh no!” Gordon Ramsay says in the video, referring to the pregnancy.
A number of people wished Ramsay well in the comments section.
Gordon Ramsay and his family rang in the new year with a boom — a baby boom!
“What a beautiful family. Happy New Year!!” said one person.
Another person added: “Soooo Happy for your Nu bundle of joy set to arrive and bless your beautiful family!”
The announcement comes two years after Gordon and Tana were given the news that she had suffered a miscarriage and lost their baby. At the time, he thanked his fans.
Regarding the miscarriage, he wrote on Facebook at the time: “Hi guys, Tana and I want to thank you so much for your support over the past couple of weeks. We had a devastating weekend as Tana has sadly miscarried our son at five months.
“We’re together healing as a family, but we want to thank everyone again for all your amazing support and well wishes. I’d especially like to send a big thank you to the amazing team at Portland Hospital for everything they’ve done.”

Ramsay also told the Daily Mail at the time: “It has brought us all so much closer. You realize 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.”
Meanwhile, Ramsay apparently doesn’t go easy on his family in the kitchen.
“He’s really tough on me, yeah. He definitely is,” Matilda said, according to People.
“My recipes are kind of, like, if you don’t have one of the ingredients, it’s not a big deal. But with Dad’s, if you don’t have one of the ingredients, like, it doesn’t work as well. His is a lot more fussy.”
First American Baby Born in 2019
The first American baby born in 2018 was delivered in a hospital in Guam, a U.S. Pacific island territory.
The child, named Malakai, was born 19 minutes past midnight on New Year’s Day, reported the Guam Daily Post.
According to the report, the baby weighed in at 6.6 pounds and is 17.9 inches. The Guam Daily Post noted that Malakai is the first baby born in the United States in 2019.
The parents told the Guam Post that Malakai is a blessing as Desirae had a miscarriage before he was conceived. “We had a miscarriage right before Malakai was conceived. His name stands for ‘godsend,” Kyle told the publication. “I came in at 11 a.m. and then didn’t give birth until 12:19 a.m. It was the whole day,” Desirae added.
Malakai is the third child of Desirae and Kyle Mafnas and was described as a healthy baby who had been “eating all morning,” said his mother, reported the Pacific Daily News.

Malakai was asleep during the presentation of his gifts, which were valued at $6,600, the report said.
Guam is located close to the international date line in the Pacific Ocean, and it uses the motto, “Where America’s Day Begins.”
It’s not clear where the first baby of 2019 was born. However, it might be a baby born in Auckland, New Zealand. And this year, Auckland’s first baby was identified as little Cora Rae Atkins from the North Shore, New Zealand, according to Stuff.co.nz. Cora may be the first baby born in 2019.
Cora was born at 12.34 a.m. on Jan. 1 at North Shore Hospital in Auckland.
“[She] was a good New Year present. So far, she’s quite content. She’s pretty much slept from 5 o’clock this morning ’til [2pm]. She’s pretty happy,”Cora’s father Leach said.
“[We’re] a little bit overwhelmed because it was quite a quick delivery.”
