Speaking in December 2019 about his family, David told Jonathan Ross: "[I have] five [children now] it's quite a lot, it's a sofa full! It is great. It's a lot of work but there's nothing like it really. The baby is nine weeks old now so you're just getting that thing where you look and get a smile back. You'd give up any night's sleep for that."

David is a very proud father of five

David and Georgia – whose dad, Peter Davison, was the fifth actor to portray the famous Time Lord between 1981 and 1984 – met when she starred alongside him in the Doctor Who episode, The Doctor's Daughter, in 2008.

David usually keeps his private life behind closed doors, but once opened up about his marriage to the Guardian when the journalist jokily suggested he'd deliberately picked a partner who was the daughter of a Doctor. "That's exactly what I did, yes!” he replied. “And there were very few candidates available. It was a limited field."
