Matt Baker, 42, has been married to his wife Nicola Baker since 2004 and have two children, Molly and Luke, together. The Countryfile presenter and his other half keep busy outside of their careers, as they own a farmhouse together in Hertfordshire.
Matt opened up about the couple’s home life in a recently unearthed interview with The Sunday People’s Love Sunday magazine from 2015.
He said that although Nicola is “phenomenal” and “very patient”, his work commitments can be “a nightmare” for her at times.
The One Show star revealed: "We’ve got sheep, chickens, dogs – our dog’s just had eight puppies – a cat, tropical fish.
"We’ve also got orchards and paddocks, so if I’m not cutting the grass, I’m training the sheep. Or I’m in the wood yard building something.

"I’m a farmer’s son, so I was taught to get on with things and do them myself.
“But that’s a nightmare for my wife, because it means we’ve been doing the house up for a long time because of my work schedule."
Crediting his wife’s support, Matt added: ”She’s phenomenal, my wife. She’s very patient.
“People say, 'How do you fit so much in?' But in truth I couldn’t if it wasn’t for her."
