Kevin McKidd has the dad thing down to pat. With four kids under his belt, McKidd is a proud father, and he's not afraid to show off his family on social media. 


Kevin McKidd, best known for his role as Owen Hunt on the hit medical drama "Grey's Anatomy," is also a big family man at home. He showcases his kids online quite often. 

McKidd, 46, is a longtime dad, sharing his first two children with ex-wife Jane Parker whom he was married to from 1999 to 2017. He tied the knot with chef Arielle Goldrath in 2018


The British-American actor welcomed his third child in May that same year. Aiden was born on Mother's Day. As a newborn, he looked precious in a grayscale photo with his mom lying next to him.


McKidd is also father to Joseph, 20, and Iona, 17, from his previous marriage to Parker. Last year, McKidd shared a sweet post on his eldest son's birthday. "Love you to the end of time," it read in part. 

The photos showed Joseph playing an electronic guitar, riding at the back of a small boat, and enjoying being on the water with his doting dad. The young boy has a lot of interests. 



McKidd has proven he's a fun dad in other ways. In a throwback photo with his daughter and her friend, the two girls got to visit the set of "Grey's Anatomy."

Meanwhile, little Aiden is growing up fast. By the time his new sister came around last July, he was already starting to talk. McKidd and Goldrath welcomed their baby girl on July 27, 2019. 

Nava James came in weighing 6 lbs, 5 oz, and measuring 20 inches long. McKidd explained that when his baby girl arrived, he could finally enjoy the moment fully. 



Despite having to work, McKidd said, "I am more relaxed now than I was during my first marriage. I appreciate the process more. It was stressful for me then." 

He revealed that he and his wife take turns waking up early to comfort Nava. Sometimes, it suits his schedule as he has to be on the "Grey's Anatomy" set at 6 am. 


McKidd isn't the only "Grey's Anatomy" star who has a fulfilling life off-camera. Jason George, who plays Ben Warren on the show, has been married to his wife, Vandana Khanna, for a whopping 21 years. 


The couple shares three children: Nikhil, Jasmine, and Arun. In May 2020, George posted a collage of three photos with the kids to honor his wife on Mother's Day.

In the first shot, George and Khanna were dressed in costumes and made funny faces. The second showed Khanna hugging her children, two of whom are twins. 

In the last one, she and Khanna knelt on the sidewalk as they played with their daughter Jasmine. The "Grey's Anatomy" cast is blessed to have such beautiful families.
