Frankie Essex and boyfriend Luke Luv have shared a beautiful photo of their newborn twins, writing alongside it, ‘three weeks of loving you.’
The adorable black and white snap shows the non-identical twins, a boy and a girl, wrapped up in a blanket with their feet intertwined.
Underneath, she added, "Read all about our babies in @new_magazine coming soon…!!"
Earlier this month, we exclusively revealed that the couple had welcomed their tots, who they’ve dubbed their “baby bears”, and that they were feeling “double the love”.
Former Towie star Frankieannounced her pregnancy back in February with an exclusive shoot for new magazine.
The "over the moon" star told us of the news they were expecting not one baby, but two: "There are no twins in the family and we conceived naturally. They’re not identical.”
Revealing how they discovered the news, she said: “The lady scanning me was focusing on one baby and was then like, "What else do we have here then?" and I was so shocked and asked, ‘Are we having twins?’ I burst out crying, tears of happiness. It was just so beautiful. It was lovely.”
The former reality star – who is the sister of former co-star Joey Essex and cousin of Chloe Sims – have told us her family are besotted with their new additions.
One person who sadly isn't around to celebrate is Frankie and Joey's late mum, who passed away when she was 13. She previously told us that she had been so focused on the pregnancy and renovating her new Brentwood home that she hadn't had time to think about her absence.
During her pregnancy, Frankie shared: "I’ve not really had to think about Mum not being here, it’s not entered my mind yet. Things might change when they’re here, but at the minute I’m alright."
Frankie revealed that she fell pregnant shortly after coming off contraception. She said at the time, “I love looking after people, so I hope I'm going to be a good mum!”
She found out the genders of her twins, a boy and a girl, with a reveal party in March surrounded by her friends and family.
The sky lit up with pink and blue fireworks at the lavish event, telling the expectant parents the genders of their children.
Joey posted on Instagram: "A proud brother about to become an uncle, congratulations to my sister and Luke. Boy and girl."
Frankie, who appeared on the Essex reality show from 2011 to 2013 and has made brief cameos since, has been in a relationship with partner Luke for three years and revealed he has been so supportive throughout the pregnancy and hasn't let her "lift a finger."
And when it comes to names, Frankie and partner Luke previously told us they had some frontrunners early on. "I’ve always had a name in mind, ever since I was younger," she said. "When I first met Luke, I told him it.”
