A second added: "Is he taller than Papa too? Marvellous mo captured. Wonderful wife and mother there, still protecting her baby from the rain, and not asking you to hold her brolly… let's hear for the girls." Whilst a third remarked: "You have a lovely family Ben..."

Ben, who has been married to Annie since 2004, rarely shows pictures of his family, but when he does, his fans are clearly delighted.

Just last month, Ben shared a lovely post with his wife to announce some happy personal news – they had received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The snap was a collage of two pictures, one showing Ben getting the vaccine and a second showing him and his wife of 16 years smiling to the camera with their arms around each other.

In the selfie with his wife, the couple both wore stickers that declared they had been vaccinated, which Annie had stuck to her forehead.

Ben captioned the sweet pictures: "#JabbyMcjabface First one done! thanks to all the team @harlequins wonderfully efficient friendly staff, and a cracking setting too. I’d say the sun seems a bit brighter today! #grateful."
