Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher's mother in law's spooky prediction about Liz having twins

Strictly Come Dancing and Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher and his wife Liz are expecting twins in the late spring or early summer and one member of the family called it.

The former soap star, who uprooted his entire family to the countryside last year, looks set to rival Amanda Owen with his ever-expanding brood. Their new life on the farm was shown in BBC series Kelvin's Big Farming Adventure earlier this year.

Childhood sweethearts, Kelvin and Liz, already have two children together - Marnie who is five and Milo who is two and now have two more on the way.

The soap star and his wife shared the exciting news during an appearance on BBC Breakfast back in January and have kept fans up to date with the pregnancy on social media ever since.

In his most recent post Kelvin couldn't help but remark: “that bump is MASSIVE” as he shared a snap of the two of them with fans.

While farming duties, parenting, midwife appointments, work and everything in between mean Kelvin and Liz are like passing ships in the night at the moment, they did make manage to find time to take appear on Made by Mamas the podcast recently.

In the episode the couple opened up about their humble beginnings, Liz's pregnancies with Marnie and Milio and of course the shock of finding out they were expecting twins.

During the chat Liz revealed that her maternal grandmother was a twin and that they run in the family, she even said in a weird twist of fate before her first scan her mum had predicted the outcome.

Liz said: "My mum sort of had an inkling before the scan, she said to me 'What if this is twins' and I said 'Oh mum, don't say that' and then next thing it's twins - it's like she knew and now we can't imagine it any other way."

Speaking of their shock when they found out they were expecting two babies, Kelvin said: "It's a shock though, it's such a different dynamic and a game-changer, I've never felt joy and fulfilment like it when we found out, it was an overwhelming rush of adrenaline.

"It was probably one of the best moments of my life. I have never felt so lucky and so happy, I was on cloud nine, thinking how exciting is this going to be while Liz's mind starts racing thinking we need a nine-seater and there's more risk with twin pregnancies."

Liz added: "I think father and mother see pregnancies and babies very differently, Kelvin was shouting from the rooftops 'it's a Christmas miracle!' but in the space of ten seconds, I went from complete joy to complete worry, back to complete joy back to how am I going to carry twins.

"I did say this could only happen to us."

When asked who's idea was it to do a complete 180 and move their entire life to the country, Liz said: "Ideas like that always come from Kelvin. If he's sat still quietly for five minutes I think oh god what is he thinking what ideas has he got now."
