The actor met his partner and fellow actor Liz when they were eight years old. However, they only got together when they met again around 2009.

The couple tied the knot in a magical ceremony at London's One Mayfair on 28 November 2015 in a day they shared exclusively with HELLO! magazine, and Kelvin said the wedding was a dream come true.

"I knew I wanted to marry Liz the day I met her. Deep down I knew she was The One," the actor said of his long-time love. "The image of Liz coming towards me up the aisle will live with me forever. She took my breath away. She looked so beautiful," he added.

"It's a year to the day I proposed to Liz in Anglesey," the groom told HELLO!."I thought that was an amazing day but today has been even better. It has been everything I had hoped it would be and much more. But it hasn't been just about me and Liz. We wanted our wedding to be a celebration for everyone in our lives - a way of saying thank you. And there are some amazing people in the room today."

After ten years together, it was the thought of starting a family that finally pushed the lovebirds to marry. "I always felt it was inevitable we would get married one day, but when we started thinking about having children, I knew I had to get a move on - especially as I'd love to have five," he said with a laugh.

"We didn't need a piece of paper to prove anything because we know we love each other. But now that it's here, it feels so right. Marriage completes us."

Both Kelvin and Liz are now doting parents to two young children, daughter Marnie and son Milo. More recently, however, they revealed they are expecting twins! The news was announced during an appearance on BBC Breakfast with Sally Nugent and Dan Walker.

"You were already quite busy before you took on a farm!" host Sally remarked, to which Kelvin replied: "We just recently found out, to add another curveball if you like. We don't really do things by halves and then we found out we're having not just one baby, but two!"

"So we're having twins," Kelvin continued. "It was an absolute eye-opener. So come May, we'll be delivering lambs for the first time. I'm not going to be delivering babies as such but it is going to be a really busy time!"
