Jonnie shared a sweet snap of Rex
Jonnie shares three sons, Rex, and twins Rafa and Cormac, with his wife, Jessica. Speaking about welcoming three children after the age of 45, he said: " "It's been quite a rollercoaster. "You could say I left it all quite late in life. A mate of mine said: 'Jonnie Irwin, late starter, big finisher,' and that is about right!"

First-born Rex, who turns three on Christmas Day, "came hurtling into the world". He said: "It was brilliant to have someone else to think about. And then, in quick succession, suddenly two more landed. We have rocked back on our heels a little bit.
"[Rex] has a really sweet nature, and sometimes just goes and sits by them and strokes their legs. For such a young boy he's very aware of them and calls them 'brothers'. I don't think Rex can tell them apart, but then I struggle with that as well." Aw!

Jonnie recently revealed that he sometimes feels guilty that his job takes him away from his family, posting on Instagram: "Twenty-five hours of travelling to get back to the family for a couple of precious days. To be honest the workdays are far from a walk in the park at the moment but it relieves a bit of the guilt I feel from leaving their mum on her own to hold the fort. Plus times with this fella are rarely anything but good ones."
