Gordon Ramsay says his friendship with Gigi Hadid is the “only reason” his daughters “want to talk” to him.
The 54-year-old celebrity chef became friends with the model when they met on Masterchef Celebrity Showdown in 2016 and have stayed in touch ever since, and Gordon has now said his own daughters — Megan, 22, Holly, 20, and Tilly, 19, whom he has with his wife Tana — want to use him to get close to the beauty.
Speaking to People, he quipped: "My daughters, they love me. It's not because I'm a f****** good chef. They love me because I talk to Gigi Hadid. That's the only reason why they want to talk to me.”
Gordon — who also has Jack, 20, and Oscar, 19 months, with Tana - said Gigi even sent him a pasta dish a few weeks ago, which he confessed tasted “f****** good”.
He added: "Gigi sent me this [pasta] dish a couple of weeks back on Instagram and said, 'Chef, what do you think?' And I said, 'Girl, it's good. In fact, it's f****** good.”
Despite Gordon’s teasing when it comes to his family, the Hell’s Kitchen star has admitted he has formed a deeper connection with his family whilst quarantining amid the coronavirus pandemic.
He said: "The bond has felt like cramming 10 vacations all at once, handed on a plate, and garnished with parsley. We’ve laughed, we've cried, we've fallen in love, we've fallen out of love, and we came out of it so much stronger together. There's a level of closeness like we've never had before." — BANG
