Jonnie and his wife Jessica recently welcomed twins

Jonnie and his wife Jessica had reason to celebrate back in June after they welcomed twin boys! Clearly thrilled with his growing family, Jonnie uploaded a picture of himself, Jessica, and their newborn boys. The presenter wrote in the caption at the time: "They've arrived! After a long day in hospital the boys finally decided to make an appearance.

"They are identical in every way including weighing a good 5 pounds 7 each. No names yet. Jess was her usual magnificent self. I’m so proud of her for carrying around what looked like a planet these last few weeks and huge thanks to the amazing staff at The RVI in Newcastle."

He went on: "Due to lockdown restrictions I've had to leave mum and twins in the hospital and await their return home so giving Rex as much fun and love as possible. We know having 3 boys under 18 months is gonna be hard but it's better to have a surfeit of good news rather than a deficit. Bring it on!"
