Ewan McGregor opens up on ‘frightening’ reality of being a parent

Ewan McGregor has opened up on his life with a toddler as he reveals a lack of sleep is taking its toll.

The father-of-five, who welcomed his first son with wife Mary Elizabeth Winestead in June 2021, revealed how parenting has left him “knackered”.

In a Global Player interview, released on Tuesday (26 March), the 52-year-old said: “I have got a little boy who is two-and-a-half, so by the time he goes to bed, I am knackered.

“So by the time he is asleep I haven’t got time to be bored before I’m asleep. It’s frighteningly soon after his bedtime, mine.”
