Tana also shared her own post, saying the Ramsay family had been ‘blessed’ with their new arrival.

She wrote: ‘It’s been a nerve wracking 9 months but we’ve made it and we have been blessed with this little bundle. Ramsay family definitely complete. Jesse James Ramsay we love you so much ❤️’.

The couple were inundated with congratulatory messages from their celebrity friends including Kirsty Gallacher who wrote: ‘Wow congratulations guys what lovely news’.

Paddy McGuinnes commented: ‘Fantastic! Congratulations x’ while Joe Wicks added: ‘Absolutely wonderful news. Congratulations mate. Love to the family ❤️’.

The couple, who married in 1996, kept Tana’s latest pregnancy a secret.

However, back in September, Gordon admitted he was under pressure from Tana to have a sixth child but said he was against the idea.

Speaking to Nick Grimshaw and Angela Hartnett on the Dish podcast, Gordon confessed: ‘I’ve got a little secret… Tana wants another one.’

But he admitted that he is reluctant to have another baby, saying the family would need ‘two buses’ and that he would be older than the other parents at school.

He said: ‘It’s like going to school, going out for dinner in two buses. And secondly, I’m going to be the oldest f***er at school. ‘Who’s your grandad?’

‘And what about sports day? The egg and spoon race. What am I going to do? So, I’d love another one, but no.’

Gordon also spoke about how his youngest child, Oscar, is quickly following in his father’s footsteps after complaining about the food at his school during his first week.

He said: ‘He didn’t want to wear his blazer. He said, ‘Dad, it’s too f***ing itchy.’ And he said, ‘the food’s s***’.

‘I said, son, BYO. He said, ‘what does that mean?’ I said, ‘bring your f***ing own.’ So he’s got his own lunchbox, it’s all prepped, he’s got his finger sandwiches.’

Despite being unwilling to grow his brood, Gordon admitted that his fathering skills have improved with each kid.

He explained: ‘Everything you did wrong first time round, you do so much better. He’s growing up at such a rate of knots. He’s like a little adult at four because he’s got four big siblings that he answers to.’

Gordon admitted during the coronavirus pandemic that Tana was keen to expand their family, wanting to use the opportunity of lockdown to start trying.

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon, he said: ‘Literally two hours ago our prime minister has announced we are in lockdown now until the frigging 15th of February.

‘So [Tana] said we have good news. You are up late talking to Jimmy. Tomorrow night we go for number six!’ 

Tana also previously admitted to wanting even more kids in 2021, telling Hello! magazine: ‘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!’

However, 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.’
