Clive from About a Boy is Marcus's real father, though he was never legally married to Fiona. He is every bit the hippy as Fiona and even smokes marajuana in front of Marcus. He comes across as very whiny and immature. At one point we see the difference in Marcus and Clive when they discuss what a family truly is and we can see that Marcus is, indeed, the more mature one.
