Gordon Ramsay's wife, Tana, has suffered a miscarriage five months into her pregnancy.

The celebrity chef and his wife were expecting their fifth child.

He wrote on Facebook: "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," he added.

The chef revealed the family were expecting another child on The Late Late Show with James Corden last month.

The couple have been married since 1996.

They are parents to 18-year-old Megan, twins Holly and Jack, 16, and Matilda, 14.


Miscarriage

  • If a pregnancy ends before the 24th week, it is known as a miscarriage
  • Miscarriages are quite common in the first three months of pregnancy - around one in five confirmed pregnancies ends this way and are often caused by problems with the foetus
  • Certain long-term health conditions in the mother, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or thyroid problems, can also increase the risk of a miscarriage
  • A later miscarriage may also be due to an infection, a poorly developed placenta or a weak cervix (neck of the womb) that opens too early in the pregnancy
