Has Martin Compston spoken out about his child?
Speaking to The Mail about becoming a father, Martin explained that it was a hard job and it also prepared him for his role in The Nest, being exhausted and worn out. He also revealed that when he's away from their Las Vegas home for work his mother-in-law moves into the family property to help out Tianna.
The actor was forced to speak out after a newspaper mistakenly quoted that Martin and Tianna had a "fertility struggle". It is believed the error came when Martin was talking to Dermot O'Leary on Radio 2 about his character on the show The Nest who was going through such trauma.

"Fortunately my wife and I never had to go through the pain of fertility problems but we have friends that have and it’s heartbreaking. It's not something that should be used to generate inaccurate click bait headlines," part of the statement read.
