BBC

David Tennant and his wife Georgia are such an adorable couple, and Doctor Who fans love the fact that The Doctor is married to the actress who played The Doctor's daughter in the show, and is a different Doctor's daughter in real life.

The St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold actor proved himself to be quite the sweetheart when he proposed to Georgia on her birthday (which is also on Christmas Day!) in a way that's cute without being over-the-top.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show Christmas Special, David shared the story, saying: "I wrapped up a big box in Christmas paper and there was another box inside that and another inside that. She didn't get it. It was weird.

"She was going through [the boxes] by box 10, she still hadn't figured out what I was doing. It was great, she opened the last box and it worked! She said 'Yes', thankfully!"

With five kids in their family, they don't get much time on Christmas Day to celebrate Georgia's birthday.

"We stay up just past midnight on Christmas Day when all the kids are in bed and we'll have a five-minute birthday celebration," he said. "Then you're like, the kids are going to get up in 20 minutes so we need to get some sleep!"

David added that the family will spend Christmas at home, as they couldn't imagine going away for the festive season.
