Since TV Host Ben Shephard already has two children, most people think he is done being a parent. But it seems Ben Shephard still has plenty of parental love to give. Reports are coming in that the media personality is going to adopt a third baby as the newest addition to his family.
Sources close to Shephard claim that he is eager to welcome someone new to his family again. The new member is expected to be an adopted child. There are, however, no leads about the gender and ethnicity of the child Ben is going to adopt. It is expected that he will make his decision public in the coming weeks.
Ben Shephard has been married to Annie Perks since March of 2005. He has two children, Jack and Sam, from his marriage. The former was born in 2005 and the latter in 2007.
There are also many speculations that the couple is falling apart. It is also thought to be the reason why Ben is thinking of adopting a child rather than having one with her wife. But these claims seem to have no foundation. The two seem very happy together.
It is also reported that the reason Ben is not having another baby with his wife is to send his fans a message. He believes that adopting a child would encourage his fans to adopt as well. He believes that adopting a baby helps the less-fortunate children experience the joy that comes from being in a family.
The journalist is considered to be very friendly to kids by his peers. He is extremely close to his own sons. Given his child friendly attitude, it is hardly a surprise that he wants to share his love with one more child.
Ben is just 41 years from age. He has been through tough times in life himself and can definitely teach his newly adopted child about life experience. His net worth is also very high. So, he can also fulfill all the needs and wants of his future child.
Ben has always been a friendly person. He is actively involved in several charities. He has completed 14 marathons and played in several charity soccer matches. He has even played a boxing match for charity. So, his latest action seems to be just another addition to the long list of good deeds he does regularly.
Ben always presents himself sharply in his TV appearance. His clothes have become fashion statements that his fans look up to. With his fairly tall height and charming personality, the British TV show host has now been a regular face in the British Cable TV.
Ben used to play soccer for Everton FC until he was 16 years old. However, he openly supports West Ham FC now. His passion for soccer is on the display in his Twitter account. His Twitter handle @benshephard has 604k followers.
