Anton Du Beke takes his twins home for the first time

It was smiles all round for Strictly Come Dancing’s Anton Du Beke and his partner Hannah Summer, after they emerged from hospital carrying their newborn twins for the first time.

"The little dancing feet have arrived. Mum and twins are perfect and dad is ridiculously excited!"

The 50-year-old Strictly star and his girlfriend became parents for the first time last week to a baby boy and baby girl, after successfully conceiving through IVF.

The star announced the arrival of his son and daughter on Thursday last week in an Instagram post.

And of course, in true dancing spirit, the picture was a photo of a top hat and cane with two tiny pairs of ballet shoes which had pink and blue laces.

Captioning the picture, he wrote: “Oh my! The little dancing feet have arrived. Mum and twins are perfect and dad is ridiculously excited!”

He later tweeted his thanks to his legion of fans for their ‘lovely messages’.

In November last year the professional dancer, TV presenter and singer announced that he and Hannah will be expecting to hear the ‘tippety-tap’ of two pairs of tiny feet soon, after he posted a similar picture to the one above on Instragram. 

He said: "Hannah and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting twins in the spring. We are over the moon!

The happy new parents, who live together in Buckinghamshire, have been dating for more than six years. The TV personality opened up on 'This Morning' in February this year by revealing he had held off from having children for so long because he was waiting for the right partner.

Congratulations to you both!
