Matt and his ex-wife Melissa McKnight (pictured below) welcomed Marina into the world on February 8, 2004, just months before the series finale of Friends.
Marina was reportedly diagnosed with cortical dysplasia before she turned one and she suffered from seizures as a baby. Thankfully, the dysplasia was corrected when she was a toddler.
Matt took a break from acting while caring for his daughter in her younger years. He previously told The Telegraph, “I didn’t feel like being funny. I had a lot going on in my personal life.”
He added, “I knew I wasn’t missing out on anything. I had dabbled with the celebrity world. I’d partied a bit. But there wasn’t anything there that could fulfill me. I mean, I have beers in the fridge at home.”
Matt also talked about his daughter, who is now 17. “She’s a daddy’s girl. She can wrap me around her little finger. I’m powerless,” he said back in 2014.
When Marina was 12, Matt told People that her interests were “horses and Rihanna… So that’s what I’m into. This year for her birthday, [Marina] said, ‘I want you to get Rihanna to come.’ And, I was like, ‘I’ll get right on that, sure.’”
In 2018, Matt talked about watching Friends with Marina.
“It’s still on all the time, so we’ll stop and watch it if we’re channel surfing and it pops up,” he told Express UK. “She loves to ask me questions about it. She’ll say: ‘Was that real? Did you really eat that? What did that taste like? Ooh, you ate that off the floor? That’s gross! You’re so funny, Dad.’”
