He told The Daily Telegraph in 2019 he was now ‘too old’ to have more children.

‘I’m getting too old,’ he said, adding that he and Clarissa had already spoken about it.

‘Having a kid is not just having a kid, you’ve got a whole life of it,’ he added.

‘I’ve got two now, which is plenty. It would be selfish to want to have another one and not have the time to spend with it.’
