The Doctor Who star joked about his son's hilarious reaction on The Graham Norton Show, explaining: "We have number five child on the way. It's very exciting.

"You just told me you and your wife, the lovely Georgia, are expecting your fifth child." David replied: "What's really weird about it is we're now getting lectures on birth control from our 17-year-old son. And that's definitely meant to be the other way around. He's like 'Come on, do I need to teach you the basics?' It's mental. It's a lot."

David usually keeps his private life behind closed doors, but once opened up about his marriage to the Guardian after the journalist joked that it was as if he'd deliberately picked a partner who was the daughter of a Doctor, he responded: "That's exactly what I did, yes, and there were very few candidates available.
