Their daughter Lily was angry at her father for his actions and called her father “Dick Head” on social media. 

She also decided to not use her father’s surname and adopted her mother’s maiden name, Sastry.

Their son Benjamin too didn’t seem happy and was in no way interested in following his father’s footsteps. 

Rowan has a child from his second wife, Louise Ford.

Rowan Atkinson affair

 James said that he found about his then-girlfriend dumping him and dating Rowan by reading about it in a newspaper. 

James felt that distance between him and Louise began to grow when she took the role in Quartermaine's Terms at Wyndham's Theatre in 2013 alongside Rowan. 

Louise and James were in a relationship for two years when Louise dumped James for Rowan. James also keeps on joking about him being got left for Mr. Bean.

 Rowan is 28 years older than Louise, but the age factor did not stop them from falling for each other. They have a daughter named Isla, born on December 2017.
