Jonnie wrote: "The twins are finally old enough to face forward. I felt bad for them only able to see the seat back rest but chuffed to bits with their new arrangement

"Now it means we don’t have to rely on them being asleep when we go anywhere which is liberating for all of us and as you can see the boys love ‘em! I’m actually quite jealous myself!"

Fans of the proud father expressed their amazement in the comments. One person wrote: “Looking good, Jonnie. He'll be running with the ball in both hands in no time. A natural,” while another commented: “It's true he's pretty amazing at his young age.”

Rex was born in late 2018, while Jonnie and his wife Jessica welcomed the twin boys in June 2020, making them parents of three children under three. The family reside in Newcastle with a second home in London.
