Ioan Gruffud Talks Fatherhood And The Ringer Season Finale

‘Ringer’ star Ioan Gruffud stops by the Rachael Ray Show.


Ioan, most well known for his role in ‘Fantastic Four’, stopped by to chat with Rachael Ray about the season finale of ‘Ringer’, and to dish on his family. Ioan and his wife, ‘The Vampire Diaries‘ actress Alice Evans, share a two year old daughter, Ella Betsi. Here’s a sneak peek at the interview, which airs in full today, April 12th.

Ioan plays “superdad” while his wife is away filming:

“Unfortunately, that show shoots in Atlanta , so no we’re not in the same town. The last time she was there for 10 days. So I had Ella the entire time, playing “superdad.” It’s very exciting. I love it. I can’t get over what great company they can be.”

Ella has started to speak more:

“Now she’s able to communicate and starting to form full sentences and that evolution is just beautiful to us.”

Ioan says his daughter takes after his wife:

“She’s very, very strong. She’s like her mother. So I’ve got my work cut out for me at home. She’s insistent on not going in her bed right now.”

Ioan’s two year old would rather play in his trailer than the children’s playroom:

“Sarah’s (Sarah Michelle Gellar) got a 2 and a half year old daughter, so have I. I think they’re like 10 days apart. Well, my daughter comes to set and she’s like “No, no daddy. Trailer, daddy’s trailer.” She wants to play in the trailer.”
