Massive congratulations are in order for Steps’ star Ian ‘H’ Watkins, who has revealed that he and his partner Craig Ryder are now fathers.
The couple welcomed twin boys, born via surrogate, in the early hours of Sunday morning, and Ian took to Twitter to share the news.
The singer wrote: “We are DADS! We are totally & utterly in Love ! #Twins”.
Ian also shared a photo of the twins’ hospital wristbands, which shows that their times of birth were 02.14am and 02.17am, with their temporary names being 'Baby 'A’ Boy’ and 'Baby 'B’ Boy’.
… At least we hope that they’re temporary and he isn’t planning on going down the 'H’ initial-name road…
The happy baby news comes after the couple’s previous surrogate tragically suffered a miscarriage in 2012, with Ian and Craig announcing that they were expecting again in an adorable animated YouTube video back in December.
The video explained: “Together we’ve been on lots of adventures! But our biggest adventure is about to begin!
"For a long time we have been wishing and our wish is about to come true.
"We are going to be dads! There’s more. It’s twins!”
Massive congratulations to the happy couple - we bet they’re going to make the most adorable little family.
