"Real talent shines through regardless of how many others are around you." - Paloma Faith

His Bio & Age
Even though Ben is a host of a broadcast channel that invites over 75 million audiences all around the world, he still chooses to keep his life out of the spotlight. He has not revealed his birth date in his bio, so it is very challenging to determine his age. There is no information about his birthplace or his family as well.
While he is active on social media, his posts are only work-related. He does not post about his parents as well. However, he did post a picture of him attending his gay friends' wedding. The beautiful wedding was a combination of Christian and Hindu marriage. Ben is undoubtedly close to reporter Arrun Soma and his husband Jake Vollebregt, who were the grooms of the wedding.

But nothing can be guaranteed since he won't talk about relationships.
