Chef Gino reveals he has a favourite child

Gino shares two sons – Rocco and Luciano – and a daughter – Mia, who is nine, – with wife Jessica.

Yet the 46 year old revealed one of his kids has stolen a little piece of his heart.

Speaking in an interview earlier this year, chef Gino was asked which of his dishes on his restaurant menu is his favourites.

The cheeky star replied: “Look, that question is like asking me: ‘Which one is your favourite child?’ I can answer to that easier than which one is my favourite dish.”

My little girl is my favourite child!

When asked which child is indeed his favourite, he responded: “My little girl is my favourite child!

“It’s an impossible question because it also depends on how you feel on the day. Right now, I fancy fish, because yesterday I had meat. But tomorrow, I don’t fancy fish I fancy meat.”

Gino also revealed that Mia will want for nothing when it comes to her future – all she has to do is ask!

It’s hoped his boys, however, will follow him into the restaurant business.
