Richard Hammond Is Such A Family Man – And We Love Him For It
Even amidst the time drainer that is the filming of The Grand Tour, our favourite family man always manages to make time to spend with his wife and two daughters.
He’s been spotted taking his wife Mindy and two daughters, Willow and Isabella to The Ivy Chelsea Garden in London on Tuesday night between stints of filming – as you know, he’s recently been in Yorkshire, Farnley Tyas filming with what looks to be an amphibious, jet powered vehicle.
Hammond is an incredible father. Mindy wrote in her column the other day that Hammond, even though he’d just landed in the country a few hours earlier, sat down at the table with Izzy ‘with reams of practice papers’ to help her revise for her GCSE exams.
Of course, the revision became side-tracked with Richard asking his daughter questions such as, “What does your father do for work?” and, “And is your father handsome?”, but what else is a father for than to embarrass his daughter? And this is Hammond, he finds it very difficult to take most things seriously, let alone attempting to speak another language.
If you’re interested – and you should be – Mindy’s column can be found here.
Richard has recently stated that he won’t be doing any more death-defying stunts for the sake of his “beautiful” family, after falling from his bike in Mozambique.
Yes, we may miss all the action and all the stunts, but we’d much rather Hammond be happy knowing he’ll be there for his family and away from any danger. After all, that’s one of the reasons we love him.
We’ll also be happy knowing that Hammond won’t bang his head again any time soon, especially with two seasons of The Grand Tour to finish recording!
