Ben Fogle has become something of a national treasure. The award-winning TV presenter, wildlife advocate and adventurer has been a regular on our screens since 2000, and has hosted programmes on many channels.
He might be best known for his love of the natural world, but when he's not exploring the globe, the 48-year-old can most likely be found spending time with his two children and wife, Marina Fogle. Take a look at the father-of-two's incredible family photo album…

Ben Fogle and his wife
Ben often shares photos of his wife Marina on social media. The pair met for the first time while they walked their dogs together in Hyde Park, and they married in 2006. They have gone on to have two children, a son called Ludovic, who was born in 2009, and daughter Iona, who they welcomed in 2011.

Ben Fogle and his son
Ben and Marina welcomed Ludovic Herbert Richard Fogle into the world in 2009. The TV star occasionally shares photos of his son, and in May 2020 showed off his boy's incredible gardening skills, telling his followers: "Ludo has transplanted the corn into the new vegetable patch. I had always wanted more time to grow our own fruit and veg and now we finally have it. We have loved learning new skills together."

Ben Fogle and his daughter
Ben is a doting dad to 11-year-old daughter Iona, and back in 2020, he dedicated a touching Instagram post to his little girl on her birthday, writing: "My most precious daughter. She hoped desperately that we wouldn’t still be in lockdown for her birthday. But we are and we sang Happy Birthday so loudly that all our family across the country could hear it too. Happy birthday to everyone else celebrating a milestone in isolation. Love and peace."

The most heartwarming of Ben's posts have to be the ones of his lovely family. In this snap, shared last year, his wife and children can be seen perching on a fence on a windy day. Ben added a sweet caption to the photo, showing his appreciation for his family.

He wrote: "I feel incredibly lucky to have family. They have been my crutch. Not everyone does. We are social animals. We need company, community and companionship. There is no power for change greater than community. Alone we can do very little, together we can do so much more. We rise by lifting others. Community gives us the strength to carry on. We are stronger together."
Ben Fogle and his sister
Ben showed his sister, Tamara Fogle, some love when he shared a sweet photo of her cuddled up to an adorable Labrador. In the caption, Ben explained that he was proud of his sister and her husband for launching a clothing collection.
