Anthony Bourdain to Be a Father is reporting that Tony is to be a father sometime in April. Fifty year old chef, author, and world traveling TV host, Anthony Bourdain, is expecting a first child with his Italian girlfriend.

Tony is reportedly quite excited about the youngster and is taking his upcoming fathering duties seriously. He’s hoping for a wild child – a kid who will grow up with South East Asian playmates, and one who can speak several languages, including Indonesian and Italian. Ideally, he’d like the kid to know kung fu.

    Of course Anthony Bourdain would have an Italian girlfriend – and I’m sure she’s GORGEOUS! I’m jealous…and want to sneak away with both of them.

    Congrats on the new baby though!

    I was sad to find out your experience in Iceland. I have a verry different wiev, but I agree the shark is horrible. But the lamb in Iceland is delicouse and fish is one of the best I have eaten. I travel there to see and enjoy the real Iceland and the best time being august. The blue Lagoon and the highlands are amazing experienc. The food again is one of the best I have tasted, but sad do say you must have had a bad experience.
    Hope you go back some day and see what I see and taste the real food of Iceland. Thank you for a good show and congratulations with the baby.
    Kind regards

    Tony, when ur tired, and want to retire from doing “No Reservations” or just need a break, I’ll give it a go…. You appear to need a break with the impending birth of ur first child and I will reluctantly volenteer my foodie abilities and seek out that which excites the common palete in the various cultures laden with endless flavors and textures. I promise not to stray to far from ur bouyant adjectives enhancing even the most blandest of lack luster tasteless substanances. I’m sure I will be able to ace the liquid refreshment segments, like u, without a hitch. If its frosty cold and chilly, no blem, like our winters here in Wisconsin, our bars know how to accomodate. Noted for a city that knows how to drink, Milwaukee has trained me well. If I can be any help, just let me know ! Take care Tony, God Bless u my brother !

    I just decided to Google to find out, and it is such a relief to know he’s not gay…..congrats on the beginning of a family….

    Oh, definitely. Goodness knows, if he were gay his show would suddenly be worthless, he’d turn into a crappy chef and his ability as a writer would dissolve into a sea of gaygaygayness.

    Anthony Bourdain, I’m Wulan from Jakarta Indonesia, come to Jakarta and I will show you many best places to eat … Delicious, heavenlicious. Malaysia is nothing compare to my country

    Well Tony, how is the Dad now, those 2-3′s can be brutal lol. been there, done that. Love your series on N Y, I sit back and salvi, hell you know what I mean. Thank you for a great series,

  13. mike p on March 30th, 2010 2:07 am

    I, like several others apparently, found this page while googling to see if anthony were gay or not. He just reminds me of a gay couple my wife and I are friends with. The earing, thumb ring, and mannerisms had me convinced. I like how one person got all defensive when this was brought up. I’d stll like his show just fine; people google random shit all the time while sitting on the couch. Google ‘anthony bourdain gay’ and you’ll see this has been brought up numerous times.

  14. Aidil on April 13th, 2010 1:16 pm

    Hillary Wulan… youre kidding right? But to a certain extent I do agree that Indonesian food is delicious ;)

    I just caught Anthony Bourdain’s amusing “Returning to cook at Les Halles restaurant in NY” episode on a United Airlines flight and I don’t want to be a politically incorrect jerk but when Anthony, when you worked at this French restaurant a few years ago, was all the work conducted in Spanish? Did the entire kitchen crew of some 40+ people come from Mexico like now? I wonder what the owner of Les Halles pays those workers. Do you know? Do you think they are even getting minimum wage? Are there any waiters of Mexican origin taking orders from the English speaking diners for the French food? Boy, ya gotta wonder — does the French owner Phillipe also conduct everything in Spanish??!!!

  16. Heather Tam on October 13th, 2010 6:10 pm

    Message for Anthony: I live in the culinary cooking pot of Melbourne – Australia (born & raised in Sydney). My Malaysian husband cooks a mean Chilli Sambal Darwin Mudcrab and seriously brain-blowing Malay Beef Curry (plus many more dishes which are a daily reminder of why I married him…aside from the fact that I love the guy).
    Our 7 yr old son enjoys Pho and loves making his own giant wontons almost as much as he enjoys dancing to the Spanish DJ mix of ‘Here comes the Funky Chicken’. Anyway, I’ll get to the point… Has anything started happening in the US re. hawker centres you made reference to on p.73 of your book ‘Medium Raw’? If not, why not? The ‘hope’ thing just isn’t gonna make it happen but you already have the contacts to get some hawker action going. So what’s holding you back?!
    I’m taking my family to Bali early next year (March-April)to hang out at our friend Ketut’s place in Ubud. We’ll eat Bebek Bali and Lawar, go for swims at the beach, take our son on a raft ride on the Ayung River and launch my photo exhibition (Bali portraits & textures) whilst we are there. I first went to Bali in age 14…I speak the local lingo….Bali is my second home.
    Anyway, you don’t know me, or my family, from Jack Rabbit. But I do know Bali is a pretty chilled out place for most people to have a holiday. It’s also a great place for creative eaters, drinkers, thinkers & doers to talk hawk. I fully support your suggestion that hawker communities should be a cultural fact in the USA (and in any part of the western world where people like to eat). It’s a damn good idea and it should happen. Excuse my manners but..fuck the fast food chains of the universe. Support the international community of the humble person I say. I have no business card, no website and if you google me you’ll maybe find me on 2 or 3 Australian facebook links or a ‘Linked-in’site. I’m not tech-phobic, just too busy (connecting people/making projects ‘happen’) to have time to create websites about myself/ my abilities. You have my email address if you want to talk hawker(or if you just want a good recipe for Balinese Chicken Lawar and nothing more) that’s totally okay with me. Oppure, se la tua moglia ha voglia di parlare in Italiano, o di avere una vacanza a Bali ben organizzato per la famiglia. E sempre un piacere per me parlare in Italiano. Take Care, Heather(Digby)Tam Cell: +61438013493

    Of course in a perfect world, the correct response would be, “Who cares? What does it matter?” I realize though, we’re not to that point yet. And while I would love to live in a world where a celebrity’s sexual orientation just doesn’t matter at all, to anyone … for the time being I’m just happy when the celebrities and/or talent who I admire aren’t bigots. To that end, I’ve been disappointed to hear Tony make a few borderline homophobic remarks. Despite a few moments of discomfort for me, I still love watching his show, and I still appreciate the man for who and what he is.

    I had the best dad in the world, lucky me.

    So, based on my vast experience as a lucky daughter, I think having you for a dad is gonna be wonderful for your lucky daughter.

    I liked your show when you went to Edinburgh, England. I learned a lot about the Scottish foods that you showed and it was very interesting. You made me feel like I was over there when I can’t go to Europe because of it’s expenses. You should do more of all over England, and Glasgow and Ireland. We Americans love learning new different things. I’m from Arizona in case you wanted to know what kind of food I ate here. Holly

    Rather homophobobic wouldn’t you say, he would be excited to know his tv show viewers weighed heavily on whether he is gay or not. America The Great..HA!

  21. Vicki McCann on February 14th, 2011 7:50 pm

    ok, if he’s not gay, then why did he tweet this? NoReservations Anthony Bourdain
    The Ripper is skiing. Mario is eating crab in Singapore. I’m spending Valentines Day in warm embrace of Mr. Yuengling. lol

  22. Ronda on February 25th, 2011 9:11 pm

    Rather funny I say…because I ALWAYS thought Tony was gay. I’ve watched him since he’s been on tv…I NEVER cared about his sexual preference. Actually, I always thought it was a waste that he was gay…because us women were missing out!..LOL
    I’m happy that he has a healthy baby…
    Keep up the great work…I love watching you…

  23. Rachel on April 26th, 2011 5:36 pm

    I’m am so disappointed! For me. Not For Anthony, he will be a great father and partner. Just wish I was there first! I have been saying he needs a someone to travel with, and I was PERFECTLY willing to take on that task.

  24. joe blow on May 3rd, 2011 8:28 am

    I still think hes gay as a 2 dollar bill…
