Martin tied the knot with journalist, broadcaster, and television presenter Fiona Phillips in May 1997. They have two sons, Nathaniel and Mackenzie. Fiona humorously mentioned being “surrounded by testosterone” at home and expressing a desire for female company.

On July 4, 2023, at the age of 62, Fiona disclosed her Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Despite experiencing brain fog for months, the revelation left her “heartbroken,” sharing the burden of a condition that has affected her family. Fiona had silently battled the cruel blow for 18 months, striking earlier in life than expected: “It’s something I might have thought I’d get at 80. But I was still only 61 years old.” Martin has reportedly been a supportive presence by her side during this challenging time.
