"I knew instantly," he added. "I don’t know if she did. It's taken her about 20 years to know."

They are incredibly private when it comes to their private life and their children.

Speaking to Marie Claire, Isla said: "Motherhood is actually my favorite topic but I keep it private. I think all parents are trying to protect their kids, especially in the social media age.

"I want our children to have a normal childhood, being able to play outside without pressure or scrutiny."

She added: "All kids have the right to just be kids and I would never sell a film or magazine by speaking about mine."
