The Pearl Harbour star, who is a doting dad to two older children aged five and three, has kept his home life with Tamsin and their children very private.

Opening up about his family life to MR PORTER, Josh said: "The thing I am most proud of is that I'm a father of three and I have a good relationship with my partner and a great family life and I'm still able to do good work and, as I've got older, the characters have become more interesting."

Josh lives on the Surrey-Sussex border in a beautiful property he shares with St Trinian's star Tamsin and their children. The family-of-five have spent lots of time isolating together following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, but Josh confessed it has proven difficult to keep the kids entertained – a sentiment shared by many parents.

"We’ve been trying to keep them occupied as best we can, but [deep breath here] it’s a lot of work and it takes both of us all day and by the end of it all we want to do is reach for a bottle of wine and go to sleep."

The 42-year-old – who has been in a relationship with Tamsin for nine years – previously said that becoming a father to his eldest child, a daughter, changed his life.

During an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael, he said: "She is the apple of my eye. She's perfect in every way… It puts things in a totally new perspective, of course. I mean, your ego melts away when you have a new kid.

"Your heart kind of leaves your body and you give it permission to walk around with someone else for a while. It's really terrifying, but it's beautiful. I love it more than anything. I wish I would have started it earlier. But I'm so glad that she is the one I'm raising."

The Penny Dreadful actor continued: "Because of her, [my] perspective shifts on work and stuff, too. I used to be a little bit more precious about what I was choosing to work on because I was just so worried about how, like, my career was going to come across and stuff like that. And now with her, I'm like, 'I just got to work. I gotta make money.'"
