Double Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah has proudly introduced his newborn twin daughters exclusively in HELLO! magazine, revealing the little girls' names for the first time and speaking about his "incredible" year.

"Then for my wife to have two healthy little girls, well there's no way to describe it."

His wife Tania, agrees: "It's like a fairy tale. We couldn't ask for anything more. They explain the twins' names. "Twin one, the eldest, is Aisha," says Tania, 26. "Twin two is Amani.

"We wanted some free stuff from Armani," jokes Mo, before explaining that they wanted Muslim names that began with the initial. Aisha weighed 5lb 20z while Amani was 4lb 40z.

Mo and Tarah both agree that their daughters have inherited Mo's distinctive long limbs.

Mo cut the umbilical cord and held the twins first. "He was almost bouncing-off-the-walls excited," said Tania.

They told HELLO! that they were both concerned that Tania would go into labour during the Olympics, but they had agreed that they’d keep the news from Mo if this was the case.

A heavily pregnant Tania provided some of the most memorable scenes of London 2012 when she and daughter Rhianna, seven, went on to the track to celebrate with Mo after his 10,000m win.

"I was just focused on seeing Mo so I sort of forgot where we were and how many people were watching," she told HELLO!.
