He met Kate Lethbridge-Stewart at a college in Reading; he was a science teacher and she was a student. Despite college rules, they started a relationship in late 1989. In December of that year that discovered Kate was pregnant, and agreed to visit her father to tell him. However, after witnessing an attack on the Brigadier's life, Kate decided she could not bring her child into his life, and left not telling him that she was pregnant.

Their son was born on 25 September 1990, and they called him Gordon James Lethbridge-Stewart; Gordon after Kate's grandfather, and James so that Jonathan's name was in there too.
