The actor and presenter and his wife Hannah have four young sons together. The couple prefer to keep their family life out of the spotlight, however Alexander did give an insight into fatherhood in a 2017 interview with the Guardian. "Fatherhood is lovely but there is this slightly shocking moment when you realise it is not something you just wear and take off.

"With your first child, you do perhaps go into it thinking, 'Yeah, this is a job you can clock in and clock out of,' but at about three weeks in, you suddenly realise it's not like that."

He added: "Family means everything to me and it is the reason why I do everything, and it, rather than my career, is my priority, and one serves the other. That was the crucial change in my life when we had children because, up to that point, my priority was very much my career. And I am now aware that one funds the other and so it is a tricky balance."
