2 of David and Georgia Tennant’s Kids Are Working Actors – Learn More About Their Family
When David Tennant wed his wife, Georgia Tennant, in 2011, he not only gained a teammate for life, but he also added a bonus son to his family. In the years following their wedding, David and Georgia went on to welcome four more children, creating one big, happy family. The couple are known to share small glimpses of their life on social media, but according to David, the couple won’t be oversharing anytime soon.
“We’re not quite as squeamish as we were,” David told The Guardian in July 2020 of opening up a bit more when it comes to his home life. “I don’t think we’ll ever be sharing pictures of our children in Hello! Magazine, but I think a lot of that comes from an insecurity about being uncovered or invaded. The longer you’re together, the less that feels like a threat.”
David also once shared why he and Georgia take their kids’ privacy so seriously. “Our kids are lovely, and I think that being a dad is one of the most extraordinary and life-affirming things that can ever happen to you, as well as being something you have to keep working at if you’re going to be any good at it,” he told Candid magazine (via Hello! magazine). “The kids don’t ask to be photographed when we’re walking down the street, and we’ve decided that if we don’t talk much about them in public, then we can maintain a bit of moral high ground to be able to say to photographers, ‘Look, we don’t talk about them, so you don’t need to take their picture.'”
One thing David is outspoken about, however, is how fatherhood has changed his outlook on a lot of things, such as feminism and world issues as a whole. “As a father of daughters, [world issues are] something that one wants to be keenly aware of, but it’s that constant examination of programming that you’ve received yourself,” he told Stylist in June 2019. “I think all of us men – and women – can be guilty of having expectations of the world.”
“We just have to make sure that we’re challenging them, just to make sure that we’re all in a leveled playing field,” he added. “That’s all it should be about.”
