If you are Premier League Fan, you have undoubtedly seen this guy on your TV screen. Sean Fletcher is a journalist, presenter and also a newsreader. This American-British journalist is engaged currently with Good Morning Britain on sports column on ITV.
Apart from his career, how feel do you know his family? He is indeed married and has two kids. And apart from that? Well, you need not worry. We’ll follow it up with you!
Working Wife and Two Children!
Sean is married to director and TV producer Luned Tonderai. The couple tied the knot in 1999. The first time they met was at university in London. Moreover, Sean played the violin in a musical show which was written by one of his friends.
Sean said on August 16, 2015, to Somerset live:
"She was the leading lady, so we got together through that."
Moreover, he added:
"Luned's dad is a Welsh professor, so on our wedding day, probably after a glass of wine, I mentioned that I would learn Welsh. There was no option not to! My kids went to Welsh-speaking schools when we lived in Cardiff, so I learnt Welsh with them and through doing courses as well."
So, that was it. Poor guy learned to welsh all credit to his Llanelli-born wife. Sean was born in New York to a Zimbabwean mother and British father.
The couple has two children: a daughter Lili, 17, and son Reuben, 12. Sean's emotional when it comes to his kids. It happened in front of millions of breakfast-munching Good Morning Britain fans and viewers in 2014. He received a special Father's Day message, and that too live on air. He was then reporting on the World Cup even that happened in Brazil when his co-workers played him a clip of his daughter Lili and son Reuben, who did praise their "funny, giving and brave" dad. Sean said on August 16, 2015:
"[The crew] were all really tired, we'd been away from home for a long time but we were all holding it together,"
"I got quite emotional and shed a tear. It was really quite moving, as I hadn't seen the kids for quite a while. I think their mother told them what to do!”
Sean has a perfect family, and I see no signs of divorce at least for the time being. His salary and net worth are unknown although her colleague Susanna Reid was reportedly offered a huge £1 million salary as she made a move towards ITV's Good Morning Britain.
The mission behind his London Marathon:
It has been nearly ten years since Sean's mother passed out from a horrible disease, bowel cancer. It was only known before three weeks of his mother's death while the disease was beyond treatment. The question remains, why didn't her mother tell him about her disease?
Nevertheless, Sean completed 26.2 grueling miles to raise money for a charity for those who are close to their hearts in London Marathon. Sean Flecher became quite emotional and broke into tears after he completed London Marathon to raise money for treatment of bowel cancer in memory of hir mother.
Sean Fletcher speaks about his son's Obsessive Compulsive Disorder!
Good Morning Britain presenter and TV personality Sean Fletcher has spoken publicly for the first time about his son's obsessive compulsive disorder.
The former BBC Wales presenter and Reuben, his 14-year-old, hope to address stigma and raise awareness regarding OCD and other mental health issues affecting young people by talking about their experience.
Reuben says that his condition sometimes leaves him unable to move and believing he had to make progress in a certain way if he moved.
Sean Fletcher, who presents ITV’s Good Morning Britain alongside Piers Morgan, Susanna Reid as well as Ben Shephard, said that in a meeting with Prince William had led to his change of heart about talking about his son's scenario. He said:
“We had only told family and close friends when I went to an event to highlight Heads Together, the mental health charity run by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry,”
Moreover, he added:
I didn’t think I would speak to Prince William, but he came over and asked me why I was running the London Marathon (for the charity) and I said ‘because my son has OCD’ He was the first person I publicly told. It was a bizarre situation and I was shocked because I had not gone along to talk about myself. It was a huge surprise to be speaking to him. But I felt a weight ease and then we told other people.”
