On the site for the BBC Four show, Gia is described as a technology writer "with a lifelong passion for computing". She is also a keen artist, and shares her work on her Instagram account, @giamilinovich. While most of her posts are of her incredible work, she shared a snap of herself and Brian with Buzz Aldrin back in 2019, writing: "It’s the 50th Anniversary of the Moon landing today, so here’s a photo from when we had dinner with Buzz."

The pair tied the knot in 2003, and share one son, 12-year-old George. While they keep snaps of George off social media, Brian once joked about watching Thunderbirds with the youngster, tweeting: "Watching Thunderbirds with my son. Things just break and explode through bad design. But Jeff Tracey et al have superb tech that never breaks. If they'd followed some sort of open-source tech model these disasters would never have happened. It's morally ambiguous at best."

The family also own two cats, Luna and Taiyō. Gia shared snaps of their new furry friends on Instagram back in November, writing: "This is Luna. She was born on the 16th of July- the day Apollo 11 left for the Moon. She is tiny and has mittens... Here’s Taiyō... She’s settled right in with her curled ears."
