Huw Edwards and Vicky Flind are the parents of 5 children
Huw Edwards was born to Hywel Teifi Edwards and Aerona Protheroe on August 18, 1961. Hywel was a popular Welsh nationalist, broadcaster, and author while Aerona taught at the Welsh-medium secondary school, Ysgol Gyfun y Strade.
During his 60th birthday, Huw revealed in the S4C documentary that he was not so close to his father because he was absent at the time when Huw was growing up. He added:
"He could be quite sharp. I laugh when people tell me that dad was full of humour and that he always had a smile on his face. I often think – what, do you live on the same planet as me? Yes, he could be very witty and he could laugh."
Huw Edwards and Vicky Flind have been married for a long time. Vicky is a television producer who is known for her work on different shows. She and Huw are the parents of five children that include three sons, Dan, Sammy, and Amos, and two daughters, Hannah and Rebecca.
In an interview with Wales Online, Huw said that English is mostly spoken inside his house because his wife is not fluent in Welsh. He added that his two eldest children can understand Welsh but the others are yet to learn. He continued:
"They talk frequently to my mum who is back in Llanelli and they are very aware of the heritage of my dad and the fact he was such a big figure in Welsh language culture and are very proud of that."
