Biography

Citing the fact that he is "child-like" as one of his best personal traits, Thommy had always loved children and desired to have his own. This desire had grown so great over the years that he noted that he felt as if he were "withering away" from the lack of being a father. In the mid-1990s, his dream was finally realized with the birth of a son to him and wife Monika Ahlberg – a chef and cookbook author who also reviews eateries and submits recipes to magazines in Sweden. The couple would be blessed again, a few years, later with the birth of twin girls.

When questioned why he waited to have children, he stated that he "matured late", but that his family had come to mean more to him than he could have ever imagined. He felt that the most important thing in life is love, and said that he never put his children to sleep at night without telling them that he loves them.

He lived with his family in Stockholm, Sweden in Djurgården. He adored his home and referred to it as his place on earth. He also had a great love for art, citing Vincent van Gogh as one of his favorite artists. He stated that he had spent more time in the company of painters than actors.
