Marriage and twins

Hannah and Anton reportedly met at a golf club in 2011 and dated for six years before they wed. In November 2016, Anton posted an adorable picture announcing that they were expecting twins on Instagram.

The picture, which included a top hat and tiny dancing shoes, wrote: "We hear the 'tippety-tap' of tiny feet!" with Anton captioning the post: "Hannah and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting twins in the spring. We are over the moon!"

The couple were reportedly trying for children for some time before turning to IVF and having their twins in March 2017, when the happy couple were pictured leaving a hospital in Berkshire with their new-borns. That same year, the couple were said to have married in secret, after Hannah was spotted wearing a wedding band at the Chelsea Flower Show.

TV appearances

Apart from a couple of Instagram posts, the couple is very private and isn't often spotted in the public eye. However, fans were given a glimpse into their home and family life during an episode of This Morning in May 2019. Anton was appearing on the programme to showcase his baking skills when a clip showed the professional dancer presenting his Victoria Sponge cake to the twins for approval, as they sat on their mum's lap.

In September 2019, the family made another appearance during the Strictly Come Dancing: the Professionals programme, not long before the current series began. The adorable twins once again were sat with mum Hannah as they filmed a special message for dad Anton.

Hannah said: "Hi my darling, we are here to wish you the very best. We think it's about time you bring home a trophy for this room." The mum-of-two then turned to her son and asked: "George, what would you give daddy?" to which the little boy exclaimed: "Ten!" So cute!

Anton spoke exclusively to HELLO! about how he and Hannah avoid gender stereotyping when raising their twins

Back in 2021, Anton and his family also joined HELLO! for an exclusive photoshoot and chat about their trip to LaplandUK, as well as his time on Strictly Come Dancing. Revealing how he and his wife Hannah have tried to avoid gender stereotyping when raising their twins, Anton replied:

"We've told them, 'You can do what you like, wear what you like,' but George likes Spiderman and Hot Wheels, and Henrietta likes butterflies and unicorns. He crashes around more than she does. But there was no encouragement in either direction."
