Do Tom Tugendhat and Anissia Morel have any children?

Tugendhat and Morel have two children, a girl and a boy.

Adam and Beatrice have made multiple appearances in Tugendhat's interviews.

In February 2022, Beatrice interrupted him during an interview on BBC Breakfast about Ukraine.

Charlie Stayt was forced to halt his interview after she started tapping her father live on air.

But it wasn't the first time his kids interrupted him live on screen.

During the pandemic, the MP was being interviewed on Sky News when the kids crashed the live stream.

He had been discussing his objection to what he termed a "snooper's charter" as Brits were being encouraged to shop neighbours who were not complying with quarantine rules when the youngsters wandered in.

His young son, Adam, opened the door and came in, asking his father to come join in with face painting.

After encouraging his son to leave, Tugendhat tried to continue with the interview but was once again interrupted – this time Beatrice entered, and the two children began shouting.
