Stephen Hawking's son Timothy Hawking reveals he couldn't understand his father until he was five!!

The greatest English physicist of the modern science Stephen Hawking is mostly known for his "Hawking's Radiation". Hawking has dependably been viewed as a man with gigantic knowledge and theories despite his disability due to the motor neuron disease that made him communicate with an electronic voice synthesizer.

In 1963, when Hawking was 21, he was diagnosed with the neuron disease. As time passed, his disability also increased in a worse manner that gradually made him paralyzed, over the decades. Hawking was understood by his family and close friends due to his disability to speak in a clear voice. Even his child, Tim Hawking could not understand him clearly.

In a BBC documentary about Stephen Hawking, Tim revealed that his father could speak with his own natural sound but as time passed away, it was very hard for Tim to understand him, especially in the age below five.

Actually, Tim couldn't communicate with his father because of his slurred voice. They did not verbally communicate with each other until Tim was five years old. However, the condition became worse, so they managed the voice synthesizer to communicate which later filled the communication gaps between the father and the son.

Tim added,

It was somewhat ironic that Dad losing his voice was actually the start of us being able to form a relationship.

The disability of Stephen Hawking was not the deterrent to the bond with his son but truly it turned out to be the key to making them closer. However, the physical disability for Stephen Hawking could not affect his mind. Till now, he is highly competitive and tough guy to win over any game, especially in chess.

Stephen Hawking had been married to Jane Hawking since 1965. After they divorced in 1995, Hawking married to Elaine Mason in the same year but the relationship could not last long as they divorced in 2006. Stephen Hawking has a height of 5 feet and 5 inches(1.69 m).

The extraordinary scientist has the highest paid salary and it is estimated to have a net worth of $145 million. You can check out the biography documentary below
