Ex-EastEnders star Stephen Rahman-Hughes has become a father to twin boys.
The 53-year-old actor, who played Adam Bateman on the BBC soap until 2019, took to Instagram in January 31 to make the announcement 18 months after his wife gave birth to their daughter, Aphra.
He shared some adorable snaps of their latest additions, named Sonny and Remy, cosied up in blankets and with his partner, Anjalina Mehra.

Stephen wrote in his caption: "Big news! Today my life took a massive twist. TWINS!!
"I am astonished and in pieces after seeing my wife @anjalimehra do it again but this time delivering 2 beautiful boys.
"We are beyond happy that Sonny and Remy have joined our clan and that they had such a beautiful arrival. If only Juney was here to welcome her new grandsons."
He continued: "That would have been even more perfect. It couldn’t have gone more smoothly – some will remember that Anj had an incredibly difficult experience delivering Aphra (only 18 months ago).
"They say “double the trouble but double the joy” and we fully expect to have a riotous time with our 3 little precious angels.
"We wished and tried for so long patiently hoping for children. We have been truly blessed and are so grateful."
Stephen went on to thank the medical professionals at the St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for helping them welcome their bundle of joy.
He continued: "Thank you to the team @stgeorgestrust for their diligence, patience and painstaking hard work in these most challenging times for #nhs.
"The staff we encountered showed so much compassion and care under trying conditions. We are filled with gratitude. Our heartfelt thanks.
"We can’t wait for you all to meet them: much love from us. Stephen, Anj, Aphra, Sonny Rain and Remy Jude x"
Unsurprisingly, Stephen's news caught the attention of his followers and celebrity pals.
Former EastEnders actress turned Hollyoaks star Glynis Barber penned: "Oh my goodness!! This is amazing and completely wonderful. Huge congratulations to you both xx."
Former Holby City star Lee Mead wrote: "We’re all so happy for you both. The boys are beautiful. I know how much this means to you both bruva. Proper little family now. All the love in the world."
Toby-Alexander Smith, who played Gray Atkins in EastEnders, added: "Incredible mate. All the love."
