What would Ned Stark do! As he turns 60 Sean Bean says he's open to more children with fifth wife Ashley Moore
The 'Game of Thrones' actor married the 33-year-old, who is 26 years his junior, in 2017 after a five-year relationship.
Sean Bean has admitted that he is open to having more children at the ripe age of 59 years, after tying the knot with his fifth wife Ashley Moore. The 'Game of Thrones' actor married the 33-year-old, who is 26 years his junior, in 2017 after a five-year relationship.
Bean also revealed that his last four weddings, from which he already has three daughters, have not come in the way of him wanting a fourth child, and his first with Moore, as he enters his 60th year. Reflecting on the possibility of having more kids in the future, he told The Times, "Possibly, yes. With Ashley, yeah. That would be nice, that."
Bean's relationship with Moore began with "a chance meeting" in his favorite Belsize Park bar, The Cobden Arms.
The couple made an immediate connection in the North London pub, which is a stones' throw from his former home in the affluent London suburb.
"She was there with friends and I came in with my friend and it was just a chance meeting," he recalled. "I used to go in there now and again, but it was the first time she'd ever been in. We kind of hit it off."
The 'Lord of The Rings' actor further admitted that advancing age has also given him the ability to look back at his past relationships with greater maturity.
He revealed, "You know, you look back on things and think, 'Maybe I should have done that in a different way. Maybe I wouldn't have done that. I'd do that differently now.' But then again, you're a lot younger, they're different times and you think, "Would I have done that? Would I really do it any differently?"
Bean was previously married to school sweetheart Debra James, a hairdresser, in 1981, which crumbled soon after he moved to London to concentrate on his acting career. He then fell in love with actress Melanie Hill, who he met at RADA, and she became not only his second wife but also the mother of his daughters Lorna and Molly.
After their split, Bean confirmed he was dating actress Abigail Cruttenden, who he married in November 1997 and had a daughter Evie, the following year. Bean and the actress split when their baby was only a few months old, and a few years later, he went on to marry actress Georgina Sutcliffe in February 2008, but they too divorced two years later.
The actor's fifth marriage came after he had said in a 2011 interview: "Of course I believe in love despite four divorces. There is nobody who doesn't believe in love. But marriage - that fits some people but obviously not me."
