His character, Dr Christian Green, could be the ultimate bachelor with no children and no Home And Away strings attached.
But off-screen for the committed father of two, Ditch Davey, it’s a whole different story.
The actor shares with wife Sophia Dunn two lookalike sons, Eden, 17, and Taika, nine.
The family moved from Melbourne to Sydney to film the show after Ditch landed Christian’s part on the Channel 7 soapie.
He has not ruled out a chance for them to follow in his showbiz footsteps as his sons settle into their new city.
He followed me and did a couple of voice-over jobs a little while ago, and he’s pretty theatrical, “Taika is pretty animated. He’s followed me and did a couple of voice-over jobs a little while ago, and he’s pretty theatrical, “Taika is pretty animated.
“But I’m not sure. All I want for these kids is for them to be happy, whatever path they choose to take.”
His sons have yet to see him in action, despite Ditch’s successful career. Most of the time, it’s because of the nature of the series in which he stars and how suitable it is for a young audience. But with his role in a drama as family-friendly as Home And Away is that could all change.
They haven’t seen a lot of the things I did especially the youngest,”They haven’t seen a lot of the stuff I’ve done particularly the youngest one,”
“But they’re excited to watch Home And Away and I am too. When they were a bit younger, they used to come to set and play around with Nerf guns [toy weapons] or raid the craft services table.”

“Big bashing with my little Bam Bam!!”
The selfie game with Ditch and Taika is oh so strong.
Is there anything more special than scaling a father-son bridge?
If that’s what they want to do or not, I’m happy for them to forge their own direction. It’s more important for me that they grow up to be successful, happy people,’ Ditch told TV WEEK.

Ditch celebrated the christening of his son Taika in 2018.
“My wife’s whole family has been christened in this tiny church in Yorkshire, and because of our location, our little guy was not included in that until now. He now feels more a part of the English side of the family, which is great for him,” he explained at the time.
During a holiday to Paris in 2018, the Davey fam made a selfie under the Eiffel Tower.
