Apart from his parents, the young actor has a sibling: an older sister whose name isn’t disclosed. The family of four currently reside in Colorado and have a harmonious bond between them.
Scobell could occasionally be seen sharing a series of pictures alongside his family members via his Instagram handle. For instance, on Father’s Day, June 22, 2020, he shared several photos taken alongside his father from when he was a baby.
He humorously expressed his love towards his father in his caption as he wrote, “Happy Father’s Day Dad!!! I am not very good at writing those moving and inspirational paragraphs so I love you to the moon and back which is about 480,000 miles so that pretty much explains itself. Love you Dad, Walker.”
Similarly, on his mother’s birthday, October 1, 2020, he shared three pictures via Instagram. His mother was holding him in the first one, and the latter two were pictures of Scobell, his parents, and his sister.
In the caption, he first wished his mother on her birthday. He then said that he loves his mother to the moon and back and brought up the above-mentioned Father’s Day post – in which he mentioned the distance between moon and earth.
Walker Scobell’s family has a military background
Walker was raised in a family with a military background. As per reports, his father, Peter, served as a prominent member of the United States Army and served 17 years in the military as a Navy SEAL.
