Bear Grylls's birthday is on June 7, 1974, he is the son of conservative politician Sir Michael Grylls and his wife Sarah "Sally" (Nee Ford). Bear Grylls has a brother, an older sister, Lara Fasset, who nicknamed him 'Bear' at the age of one week.

From an early age, he learned to hiking and sailing with his father, who was a member of the prestigious Royal Yacht Squadron. As a teenager, he learned to skydive and earned a second Dan Black Belt in Shotokan Karate. He speaks English, Spanish and French. He is an Anglican, and he described his Christianity as the "backbone" in his life: "You can't keep God out. He's around us, if we're still enough to listen". Bear Grylls married Shara Cannings Knight in 2000.  They have three children named Jesse (born 2003), Marmadeuk (born 2006) and Hakalberi (born 2009).

In August 2015, Grylls left his 11-year-old son Jesse on St Tudwal Island along the North Wales coast, as soon as the tide came, he was rescued by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNL) as part of his weekly practice mission. Jesse was unharmed, though the RNALI later criticised him for the stunt, saying its crew "did not appreciate" that it would involve a child. Let us tell you that in West Bengal, a man has started eating raw fish, snails, cockroaches and insects influenced by the popular TV show 'Man Verses Wild'. Raj Kumar Das, a resident of Basirhat in North 24 Parganas district, attracted the attention of the people with his eating habits.
