Welcomed a daughter, Rivka Ritchie, with fiancé Jacqui Ainsley on November 29, 2012.

[on claims by Madonna's brother that he's homophobic] You'd be hard pushed to be a homophobe and marry Madonna!
Creatively, we like the same sort of things, so it just makes sense to work together. (on working with wife Madonna)
As I get more and more involved in the child's world with Rocco [his son] I'm getting interested in making a film for children.
I'd like to work with the missus, but there's nothing in the pipeline at the moment.
The English countryside is the most staggeringly beautiful place. I can't spend as much time there as I like, but I like everything about it. I like fishing, I like clay- pigeon shooting. I am not involved in any 'issues' because it's too sensitive for me - or my wife - to get involved. Every time we express an opinion it becomes a whole thing in itself. And the whole purpose of living in the countryside was to get away from hundreds of people. My wife fell off a horse, and suddenly there are hundreds of people around.
I'm not politically motivated. I used to be - passionately. I used to be very Left wing. Then I went very Right wing, and now I rest somewhere in the middle.
I am relatively familiar with getting a good old rumping from the critics. In some cases, the critics just didn't like the film - fair cop. Others, I think, didn't understand it.
We are not that flash, me or the missus. In fact, we are quite low-maintenance.
I can understand that the whole world is interested in my wife. That's even why I married her.
His films often feature characters who seem unstoppable and near-indestructible (e.g Boris the Blade from _Snatch (2000)_, the Chechnyans from _RocknRolla (2007)_, and Dredger from Sherlock Holmes (2009)).
Frequent use of humor in violent scenes
Frequently employs the use of high speed photography in action sequences
