 “I don’t tweet or do social media. It’s too impersonal. I would rather do what we did, and have people find it, and not see us from some … grainy footage staring lovingly into each others’ eyes with a ring on someone’s finger. I wanted it to be ours.”

In 2015 both celebrated Valentine’s Day on the Isle of Wight in England. Before marriage, Sophia was pregnant with her first baby. Christopher was born in 2015, and then in 2017, they become parents for the second time when Hal was born. Finn, their third son was born in 2019.
