He welcomed us into the new year with a heartfelt message and now David Attenborough will return to doing what he does best with the start of his new show, A Perfect Planet, tonight on BBC One.
The five-part series will explore the great forces of nature that support, drive and enable life on Earth.
And fans should make the most of it as Attenborough has previously suggested his flying days may be over – meaning less exploring for the adventurer.
He’s become like a very knowledgeable parental figure to many with his TV shows, but what about his actual children – does he have any?
Who are David Attenborough’s children, Robert and Susan?
Sir David has a son and daughter – Robert and Susan.
And it seems the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, as son Robert is a senior lecturer in bioanthropology for the School of Archaeology and Anthropology at the Australian National University in Canberra.
Susan is a former primary school headmistress.
Little is known about them as they have both opted a life away from the limelight – however, given the grand old age of Sir David, it’s safe to assume they’re approaching retirement age themselves.
They were reported as being in ‘their 50s’ in 2017.
Their mother, Elizabeth, whom Sir David married in 1950 died in 1997 of a brain haemorrhage.
In the past, the BBC presenter has spoken about wishing he were around more for his children when they were young.
Speaking to Louis Theroux in Radio Times he said: ‘If I do have regrets, it is that when my children were the same age as your children, I was away for three months at a time.
‘If you have a child of six or eight and you miss three months of his or her life, it’s irreplaceable, you miss something.’
A Perfect Planet starts tonight at 8pm on BBC One
