Most have other careers. Howard Webb was on a sabbatical from South Yorkshire Police and going further back David Ellery was a school teacher at Harrow. Sure plenty of others will have side interests.
If it's a girl they're calling her Sigorney after an actress and if it's a boy they're naming him Rodney after Dave.
