Despite Peter's top-notch reputation in the Hollywood industry, he likes to relish a laid-back life. While the tabloids keep a focus on gathering attention towards their two kids, Erica's actor husband has publicly addressed his family's privacy. During the interview with The Guardian, the Morristown native said:
I am so protective of everything that society has to offer. People see actors at red-carpet events and think that applies to my whole life, but it really doesn’t. I live in New York and I have a little place in the woods where I tend my garden. I like privacy and all this [press] is not my thing. I’m not jetting off to another fancy place after this.
The notoriously private couple welcomed their first bundle of joy, a daughter in 2011. While the tabloids claimed their daughter's name as Zelig Dinklage, Peter himself had no idea that he had named his daughter as 'Zelig.' During his 2015 interview with The Guardian, the three Primetime Emmys award-winning actor confirmed that his daughter's name is not 'Zelig' and it is 'hilarious that his daughter's name as 'Zelig' is a fact on Wikipedia page.'
Within six years of their first child, Erica flaunted her baby bump in March 2017, appearing alongside her husband Peter at the red carpet but did not confirm her pregnancy. Their second child's birth was confirmed during September 2017 when they attended a concert with their newborn toddler. The family of four are savoring their life residing in New York.
