The couple later revealed it was twin boys, but are yet to announce the names.
Speaking previously about the challenge of having twins, Liz 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 moved to the countryside to take on a farm last year, which they documented in BBC programme Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure.
Kelvin was a firm favourite on Emmerdale for 20 years playing Andy Sugden from 1996.
He won Strictly in 2019 with Oti Mabuse, but he’s had a career change since the pandemic.
However he will next be seen in a National Theatre production of Richard Bean’s comedy Jack Absolute Flies Again alongside Caroline Quentin in July.
Rehearsals start very soon, meaning Liz will have a lot on her plate.
“It may bring some challenges, doing the play as well as farming and raising a family. It’s all going on,” she admitted.
