What We Know About Matthew Macfadyen's 2 Kids, Maggie and Ralph

We've followed the Roy family ever since "Succession" premiered in June 2018. The show, which centers around four siblings fighting for control of their father's media company, will premiere its fourth and final season on March 26. While the series has lost cast members and gained new ones over its five-year run, Matthew Macfadyen has been part of the "Succession" family since the beginning as Tom Wambsgans. His character was first introduced as Shiv Roy's fiancé, but eventually became her husband. Since their relationship plays a major part in the series, you may be wondering whether Macfadyen is a married man in real life, too, and if so, does he have kids?

Macfadyen is married to fellow actor Keeley Hawes. The two met on the set of the British TV series "Spooks" in 2002, per People. At the time, Hawes was married to cartoonist Spencer McCallum. However, things didn't work out between the couple, and they got divorced in 2004. Macfadyen and Hawes tied the knot that same year in November and welcomed a daughter named Maggie Macfadyen in December. In September 2006, the stars expanded their family with the arrival of their son, Ralph Macfadyen. Their two kids joined Hawes's son, Myles McCallum, from her previous relationship with Spencer.

Up until now, neither Matthew nor Hawes has spoken much about their children in interviews, and whenever they have, the actors usually keep it brief. So, what do we know about their kids? Keep reading to find out.

Maggie Macfadyen

According to People, Matthew and Hawes welcomed their first child together — a daughter named Maggie — in December 2004, a month after they got married. The couple made their first public appearance with Maggie at the London premiere of "Noddy and the Island Adventure" in October 2005. Hawes's first son, Myles McCallum (whom she shares with ex-husband Spencer McCallum), also tagged along for the event. Since then, Maggie has kept away from the spotlight and doesn't appear to have any social media accounts, either.

In October 2021, Macfadyen briefly mentioned his daughter while speaking with the Evening Standard. The actor said that while he gets a lot of attention for his role in "Succession," his children aren't that interested in it. "They haven't seen it," he said about his kids. "My daughter, who's 16, is like, 'Can't you just be in a good show, like 'The Vampire Diaries?'"

Clearly, it seems Maggie is just like any other teenager who obsesses over vampire shows.

Ralph MacFadyen

Macfadyen and Hawes's second child, Ralph, was born in September 2006, according to People. While little information is known about Ralph, we do know he and his siblings occasionally visit their parents on set while filming. In April 2017, Hawes told the Radio Times her children once visited her on the set of "The Durrells" and were able to meet her onscreen kids. "My kids came out on set for a week, and yes, a bit of eyeing up went on [between them]," she said. "But my three think the big ones are super cool, and the guys here made such a fuss of them. So it was a big treat. I absolutely adore them all."
