Martin Compston

Scottish-born star Martin Compston, 36, has been married to American actress Tianna Flynn since 2016, and the two are now proud parents to a one-year-old child. The couple, who now live in Las Vegas together, prefer to keep their personal lives out of the spotlight so not much is known about their new bundle of joy.
