Dan Spencer, played by LIAM FOX, has experienced a few family dramas over the years after being misled into thinking he had a son and a daughter only to discover this wasn’t the case. The actor’s family life is much simpler than the ITV soap despite its frequent plot twists. Everything you need to know about his kids is available on Yz.co.uk.
The character of Dan Spencer, played by Liam Fox in Emmerdale, is best known for being the father of Sean Spencer (played by Luke Roskell) and a father figure to Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell). Recently, Noah Dingle (Jack Downham) broke up with his pregnant girlfriend, proving that Dan’s plans to separate Amelia and her boyfriend were successful in the ITV soap opera. However, Amelia is most likely to learn about Dan’s actions very soon, which might irrevocably alter their bond. However, things are much more subdued for actor Liam away from the cameras.
Does Emmerdale star Liam Fox have children?
Yes, Liam has kids from his first marriage to Hollyoaks actress Nicole Barber-Lane, with whom he wed in 1999.
Ben is the son of the couple, and Liam is the stepfather of Nicole’s daughter Gemma. However, little else is known about Liam’s biological children because the actor seems to keep his private life hidden from the public eye.
When Liam and Nicole divorced in 2015, they sadly parted ways after 16 years of marriage.
The couple issued a statement at the time that read, “It is with great sadness that we confirm the dissolution of our marriage, though our family unit is still very strong.
Since our families and children will always come first in our lives, we will always love and respect one another.
“They will continue to live together for the foreseeable future as they enjoy the priceless last few years of their children being in the family home,” a close friend of the couple said to the Sunday People at the time.
Despite the actors’ breakup, they continued to socialize and have fun together as a family.
Later, in 2017, the Emmerdale actor found love once more, and in 2020, he wed Joanna Hudson.
In addition to being an actress, Hudson has made appearances on shows like Casualty, Coronation Street, and The Apprentice. The couple first met while they were both students in college.
Denise Van Outen and Lisa Riley, Fiona Wade, Chris Bisson, and Chris Chittell, Liam’s Emmerdale co-stars, also attended the ceremony.
Although Joanne and Liam are not parents, they are deeply committed to caring for rescue animals. Even some of their pet dogs accompanied them as they walked down the aisle.
We are passionate about encouraging people to save animals, she had previously stated.
With so many unwanted dogs in rescue and an increase in dog theft, we recently had him neutered, which is the moral thing to do.
Joanna has previously appeared in Emmerdale; in September 2018, the actress was cast as Ross Barton’s (Michael Parr) doctor.
Liam has previously mentioned how his daughter Gemma played a significant role in his marriage to Joanna.
It moved him to tears, he admitted. She is my daughter even though she is my stepdaughter. Fortunately, Nicole and I didn’t have a messy divorce, so it hasn’t affected our relationship.
Even my former mother-in-law attended the wedding! Nicole would have attended too if she weren’t on tour.
Joanna added that watching Gemma sing during the ceremony was her most heartwarming memory of the big day.
While Liam generally doesn’t post pictures of his kids on social media, he has posted about his relationship with Joanna, including announcing they were engaged in 2019.
During the lockdown, the couple even started a joint Instagram account with the handle @joxytime where they shared details from their private lives.
