Kelvin Fletcher and wife Liz welcome twin boys as delighted pair post sweet snap

Kelvin Fletcher and his wife Liz have revealed they are absolutely delighted to have welcomed twin boys.

The couple, who tied the knot back in 2015, took to social media to announce the lovely news.

Speaking on Instagram, Liz wrote: "They are here!! My heart is filled with so much love and gratitude."

Former Emmerdale star Kelvin and Liz are yet to announce the names of their two new baby sons.

It's an exciting time for the Fletcher family as the couple already have daughter Marnie, aged five, and son Milo, three.

The proud parents announced earlier this year that they were expecting twin boys.

Speaking about becoming a mum to twins, Liz previously said: "I felt every single emotion under the sun. First, there's double the worry.

"I thought about things like breastfeeding, how is that possible with two? How do you pick up two babies at the same time?

"I felt all of this in the space of 30 seconds. Kelvin was saying it's a miracle, and I was thinking 'How are we going to do this?'

"But now we can't imagine it any other way. We feel so lucky."

The couple were inundated with plenty of sweet comments from their famous friends.

Kelvin was a fan favourite on Emmerdale after he played hunky Andy Sugden on the soap for 20 years.

He has also competed on Strictly Come Dancing, where he was partnered with Oti Mabuse.

They lifted the Glitterball trophy together as they were crowned the winners of the 2019 series.

The family moved to the countryside last year, which was documented on their BBC show Kelvin's Big Farming Adventure.

Kelvin is now gearing up to star in a National Theatre production of Richard Bean's comedy Jack Absolute Flies Again alongside Caroline Quentin in July.

Rehearsals for the show will start very soon, which means new mum Liz will have her hands full.

"It may bring some challenges, doing the play as well as farming and raising a family. It's all going on," she admitted.

Speaking about their wedding, Kelvin previously told Hello! Magazine : "We did consider a more traditional country wedding but we both love London and thought we would make a weekend of it for everyone just before Christmas. We had people coming from far and wide so it seemed like a good place to all come together."

He added: "I knew I wanted to marry Liz the day I met her. Deep down I knew she was The One.

"The image of Liz coming towards me up the aisle will live with me forever. She took my breath away. She looked so beautiful."
