In rare comments about his family life in 2020, Ben opened up about his sons. "Jack is much smaller, but he is the emotional one and the one who will explode. Sam is a lot more gentle," he shared.

"Often, if there's anything physical, it will come from Jack. They're good mates and they’re pretty different."

Ben continued: "Having boys is like having dogs. You just need to run them every day. If they're stuck inside every day, the built-up energy is extraordinary. As long as they feel like they've been able to exercise, then I'm very content with how that comes about."
