Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has a tiny, baby-sized doppelganger. The little guy’s name is Arlo-Blue, reports Buzzfeed, and he became a viral star when his mom, Claire Dempster, sent out a tongue-in-cheek tweet pointing out the doppelganger to Gordon Ramsay himself. In the tweet sent to Ramsay, Demptser asked the Hell’s Kitchen star what he’d been doing about 10 months ago.
“This is our baba – have you been in Wales for any reason around 10 months ago?”

Check out that sweet face! One look and it’s obvious that this isn’t a case of a mom not seeing her baby clearly; this little guy really is Gordon Ramsay’s “Mini Me.” Gordon Ramsay was so impressed by the unexpected little doppelganger that he replied to Claire’s tweet, much to the new mom’s surprise.
Yes about 11 months ago https://t.co/srAtXfFJa9

Oops. Is it possible that Gordon Ramsay contributed some genetic material to this little guy? Definitely not, but kudos to the celebrity chef for getting in on the fun and sending a tweet out to the mom of his little doppelganger.
The Twitterverse really got a kick out of the junior Gordon Ramsay and Ramsay’s playful response to the adorable little Arlo-Blue. Tons of social media users commented on the resemblance between Ramsay and the weeks-old baby.

According to Claire Dempster, she was totally shocked and blown away at the amount of attention her baby’s getting because he’s a doppelgänger of Ramsay. In fact, she didn’t even know that Gordon Ramsay had replied to her innocent tweet until she was contacted by Buzzfeed and the website let her in on the not-so-secret secret.
@GordonRamsay Arlo-Blue has gone a bit viral lol – sorry just a wee smile!

No word on whether or not the notoriously cranky Gordon Ramsay is enjoying the unexpected publicity that he’s getting because of his little lookalike.
While baby Arlo-Blue truly does look like a mini Gordon Ramsay, and even though Ramsay admitted (maybe jokingly?) that he’d been in Wales at just about the right time, this little blonde doppelganger is probably not the baby most on the Kitchen Nightmares star’s mind lately.
Just a couple of weeks ago, it was reported that Gordon Ramsay is well on his way to being a dad again in real life. He and his wife, Tana, 41, are expecting their fifth child, something that Ramsay announced during an appearance on The Late Late Show. Gordon Ramsay’s other children are 17-year-old Megan, 16-year-old twins Jack and Holly, and 14-year-old Matilda.
It is pretty ironic that a Gordon Ramsay doppelganger would appear so near to the time that the 49-year-old celebrity chef is expecting his fifth child, especially considering the age gap between the upcoming baby and his youngest daughter.
Ramsay’s wife, Tana, is reportedly handling her latest pregnancy well, and the new bundle of joy is expected to arrive early next year. A fifth child isn’t the only milestone Gordon Ramsay and his wife will be celebrating next year. The pair will also be celebrating 20-years of marriage. Ramsay and his wife have been happily married since 1996 and their marriage is, by all accounts, still going strong. The pair have even talked of renewing their vows, but have yet to find the time to make such a ceremony happen.
During the interview on The Late Late Show, Gordon Ramsay let it slip that he (maybe) wanted his upcoming baby to be a boy, only the second in a family full of daughters.
“I’m nervous. I’m just worried, obviously I’d be happy with another girl but four girls… four weddings… four Sweet 16s… four boyfriends.”
With Gordon Ramsay’s income, the weddings and the sweet 16s shouldn’t be too much trouble. The celebrity chef has been very successful over the years, with a slew of posh restaurants and a bunch of reality TV shows under his belt. All the money in the world, though, can’t really help him with the boyfriends.
So, what do you think about baby Arlo-Blue? Is he the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? Is the internet losing its collective mind, or is he not a Gordon Ramsay doppelganger baby if you’ve ever seen one?
