Personal Quote:

People are incredibly rude about it sometimes. Like, 'What? You're married?' Strange reaction to have. Proves what people's ideas about marriage are. 'We're having a baby.' 'What?' As if it's the end of the world. Of course, it's the start of a brilliant world. See more »

Trivia:

Is very particular about his children being photographed or seen on television. He strongly believes that just because he is famous, that should not give anyone the right to invade their privacy. See more »
