The 49-year-old TV chef is already father to Megan, 17, 16-year-old twins Holly and Jack and 14-year-old Matilda, affectionately known as Tilly.

As he appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Thursday night (12May16), James started asking him about his family life, which prompted Gordon to reveal his happy news.

"Yeah, three girls and a boy, and… one more on the way," Gordon smiled.

His revelation prompted cheers from the audience and fellow guest Mindy Kaling, and a huge hug from James.

However, Gordon admitted he's a little worried that the baby, due in September, might turn out to be another girl - meaning he is a father of four daughters.

"I know, I’m a little bit nervous," he laughed. "I mean, obviously I’m happy with another girl but four girls, four weddings, four sweet 16s, four boyfriends."

When James asked how Tana, 41, is doing, Gordon replied: "She’s excited, all good thank you."
