Helen Glover and Steve Backshall are set to become first-time parents

Fans immediately rushed to post comments, with one suggesting: "A routine! They tend to tag team too. Freeze lots of food as you’ll be too busy/tried to cook. Get the sleep in now....life changing, but all worthwhile!" Another said: "Listen to advice but trust your own instincts. All children are different and what works for one parent does not work for another. Enjoy the journey of parenthood it’s a bumpy ride but so worth it." A third post read: "I've not got twins, but I've got two teenage girls. My advice! Start saving."
