Where do Martin Compston and his wife live?

The couple currently live in Greenock, Las Vegas, with Martin previously describing the area as ‘suburbia’.

He told The Sunday Post: “The Strip is the tourist trap, but Vegas is suburbia. A couple of million people live there and it’s so quiet.

“I love it. The weather is great, obviously, and compared to Los Angeles and London you get so much more for your money.

“I’ve never been flash with anything. I’ve never really spent my money or liked fancy cars, so we saved to hopefully get a bit of a dream home."

Martin added: “I wanted to get a place with a pool.

"It’s an incredible feeling when you’re from Greenock and you can get your family over to stay and you’ve got a swimming pool out your back.

“The most therapeutic thing in the world is cleaning your pool, walking about mopping up your leaves.

"It’s been 15 years of saving and hard graft to get to that stage, but I’m under no illusion about how privileged I am to be at this point.”

Does Martin Compston have children?

Back in 2019, the couple revealed they were expecting when they attended Henley Festival and Tianna showed off her huge baby bump.

In March last year, Martin confirmed he had become a father, but no more details of their baby have been shared.
