Matt shares custody of Marina with his ex-wife and is extremely close with his daughter.
He told the Telegraph in 2014, “She’s a daddy’s girl.
She can wrap me around her little finger. I’m powerless.”
When Matt and Melissa divorced, Matt and Marina moved to his Santa Barbara, CA, ranch to lead a quieter life, and that’s where Marina has largely grown up.
The two of them even watch Friends episodes together from time to time, though Marina isn’t always impressed with her dad’s show, he told Express UK in 2018.
“It’s still on all the time, so we’ll stop and watch it if we’re channel surfing and it pops up,” he said. “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.'”
He added that Marina Pearl LeBlanc also used to call it The Joey Tribbiani Show before she knew it was called Friends!

At just 11 months old, Marina Pearl was diagnosed with cortical dysplasia, a condition which affects the brain and motor skills, including being prone to seizures.
Her vocal cords were also affected at the time. “My daughter was diagnosed with a problem with her head. It was a very dark period,” Matt told the outlet.
By the time she was a toddler, the condition had mostly subsided. “Spending time with her is the best thing I’ve ever done,” the Top Gear host added. “We have a great bond and it’s the best thing in my life.”
Marina Pearl has been thriving ever since! “She has a beautiful voice,” Matt told People, explaining how she had an audition for a talent show back in 2016. “I helped her to prepare some new pop song I don’t know.”
Matt and Marina at present
Marina is now 18 years old and the public just can’t get over the adorable father-daughter relationship that Matt and her have.
Matt even sometimes joked that while Marina’s peers are getting interested in watching Friends, Marina couldn’t be more opposite and just can’t be more disinterested.
Marina also isn’t showing any interest in being under the spotlight like his dad.
At present, Matt says that she is more into horses and singer Rihanna.
And while Matt doesn’t really have superpowers, he jokingly mentions that getting Rihanna for Marina’s birthday is something that he would try to do.
It’s possible that Friends fans are still not over the fact the sitcom has been gone for almost two decades now.
Nevertheless, we can expect that LeBlanc’s followers are happy for his new role as a doting father to the now 18-year-old Marina Pearl.
