Jeffrey Dean Morgan and wife Hilarie Burton are starting a new series on AMC called Friday Night In with the Morgans. Here’s what you need to know about their children and family. They have two adorable kids and they all live together on a farm.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Hilarie Burton & Their Two Children Live on a Farm Together
Morgan and Burton have two children: daughter George Virginia Morgan, who is 2, and son Gus (Augustus Morgan), who is 10, TooFab reported. Burton and Morgan are filming their new series in a studio that Morgan built so he can host the show in an area that’s away from the kids. He told TooFab that they’re a little too loud to film in the house itself, where they’re also raising ducks.
And they have hens that are all named Elsa.
In fact, they’re raising a lot of animals on their farm called Mischief Farm. The family lives on a 100-acre farm in Dutchess County, Poughkeepsie Journal reported. They have many “residents” on their farm, including Diane, the emu, who loves apples and her love, Jack the donkey. The animals on their farm include eight alpaca, three Highland cattle, five miniature donkeys, cows, two dogs, chickens, and ducks.
And they have dogs named Bandito and Ma.
Morgan said on social media that his children give him hope, no matter how bad the news is these days.
Burton shared on Instagram that it took a long time for them to have George. They lost a baby before George, she said, “More losses followed, and as so many couples know, it was heartbreaking. It still is heartbreaking… And every morning of the five years it took us, I’d open my computer at the kitchen table and see the news and I’d grow bitter over the endless parade of celebrities showing off their bumps and babies. I’d weep out of jealousy… So when this pregnancy started, we were cautious. I didn’t want to celebrate for fear of jinxing it… And now that she is here, I just stare at her in wonder all day. I see her in her daddy’s arms and I don’t take any of it for granted.”
The children have been keeping busy while they’re sheltering at home. Morgan told TooFab that son Gus has been helping Burton make masks for hospitals in the area.
He said: “My job mostly has been to take care of the farm and the kids because she has been behind her sewing machine or on the phone with the hospital for weeks. I’m just trying to support her efforts.”
Morgan and Burton share many photos and fun stories on social media about farm life with their two children. In the photo below, he talked about how he was getting his new man cave operational.
Gus recently built the family a birdhouse.
Their home is beautiful.
In an interview with TV Insider, Morgan said that one positive thing that’s come out of this pandemic is spending more time together on the farm.
“We’re doing okay right now,” he said, adding that he’s really enjoying spending this time with everyone together.
