Actor David Tennant and his wife Georgia are parents to five children and live in a stunning home together in West London.

The BAFTAs host, who starred in Broadchurch and Doctor Who, wed actress and producer Georgia in 2011 and together share Olive, 12, Wilfred, ten, Doris, eight, Birdie, four, and Georgia's eldest child Ty, 21. 

WATCH: Bafta film awards will be an "evening of generosity and joy", says host David Tennant

The couple prefer to keep their children away from the cameras and don't often show their faces on social media. Georgia still likes to share family moments with her Instagram fans, however, giving us rare glimpses of her brood. Take a look at the Tennant family below…

Georgia posted this super sweet snap of David and their daughter Birdie last year, writing: "They lure you in and then…" and in the next picture we saw the famous dad with several hair bows in his hair - what a good father letting his daughter 'do' his locks.

How cute!

Looks like dad David is passing down those acting genes as eldest child Olive is already making a name for herself on screen.

Georgia shared this photo with her Instagram fans, writing: "Outstanding British Film  #eebaftas #bafta #belfast @belfastmovie #olivetennant."

This is what it's all about… the Tennant sisters sharing a hug on the trampoline.

Georgia said: "9:03am. It’s downhill from here. #halfterm." We know the feeling!

The Tennants at Christmas

The Tennant family proved it's never too early to put up our Christmas tree. Back in November, Georgia shared this wonderful photo of her children admiring the gorgeous tree. 

She quipped in the caption: "I won. #novembertrees."

The Tennant kids go for a stroll

Four of the Tennants' five children went for a family walk and don't they look cute all holding hands?

The mum posted: "No greater feeling in the world than getting the children out of the house, fully dressed, with the dog, for a walk, in the sun, for over an hour, then all back home alive, with no one missing and 12 muddy shoes to clean. But don’t fear, they’re now safely back on their iPads and not talking to each other or us. Happy Sunday everyone."

Breastfeeding reality for Georgia

We love Georgia Tennant for keeping it real when it comes to kids and she did just that with this funny breastfeeding photo. "Breastfeeding at 19 months. #booboutfaceoff," she wrote in 2021
