For Gordon Ramsay, our Hearts Break

No marriage parents should ever experience the loss of a pregnancy, but that is what Gordon Ramsay and his wife Tana Ramsay did in 2016. The Ramsays had huge plans, but a miscarriage derailed them. At the time, the couple had four children and were anxious to grow their family for the first time in 15 years.

On June 13, 2016, Gordon and Tana Ramsay sent a tragic and heartbreaking message to Facebook, saying, “We had a devastating weekend as Tana sadly miscarried our son at five months.” We want to thank everyone again for their wonderful support and well wishes as we heal together as a family.

They subsequently admitted that they named their newborn Rocky, and on April 4, 2019, they brought Oscar James into the world after deciding to try for a fifth time. He joined his four older siblings, Megan, 25, Jack Scott and Holly Anna, twins, 23, Matilda ‘Tilly,’ 21, and the couple’s first child in 18 years.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine this week, Gordon Ramsay was open about his unborn son, Rocky, and how the miscarriage brought his wife and their entire family closer together. Though not the first time, it is the most recent time he (or his wife) has spoken about the loss.

There is no book that can help you get over Rocky’s passing, therefore it was really difficult. Watching the suffering unfold is this life-altering experience, Gordon said in the interview, which will be published in newspapers on Friday, September 22. But over the years, his family has come to claim it as their own.

Gordon stated that every member of his family—his wife, himself, and their children—wears jewelry with Rocky’s name on it in addition to naming their home in Cornwall, an area of South West England. These are only two examples of how people honor what never was on a daily basis.

“We wouldn’t have won an Oscar if we hadn’t lost the Rocky fight. Gordon continued, “Far from being a replacement, it provided us a bond that you wouldn’t find in a usual setting. Their kid Oscar, who turned four in April, is already starting to resemble his father.

After learning of the pregnancy loss in 2016, Gordon Ramsay instantly commended his wife for her courage, as he normally does. He remarked on how his children “get a lot of strength” from her and how this fortitude has kept their family together under the most trying conditions.
