Nicole shared the adorable photo to Instagram 

Keith inspired fans earlier this week, when he posed for a pre-Christmas photo wearing a T-shirt that had the words 'We won't stop' emblazoned across his chest.

The outfit was in honour of St Jude Children's Research Hospital's work against children's cancer, as the singer explained in the caption.
