Adam Thomas says he has a 'favourite' child after posting new picture of his baby daughter

The former Emmerdale star is a doting dad to son Teddy, three, and newborn daughter Elsie-Rose

Adam Thomas and his wife Caroline became the proud parents of two last month after the arrival of their daughter Elsie-Rose, and they are completely smitten! Taking to Instagram to share a gorgeous new picture of his two-week-old daughter, the former Emmerdale actor wrote in the caption that he had a "favourite child", but was quick to make sure his followers knew he was joking, especially his three-year-old son, Teddy. "I think I've got a favourite.. don't tell Teddy," he wrote, accompanied by a series of crying with laughter emojis. "Ps. When you learn to read Ted I was only joking. Elsie-Rose Thomas xx," he added.

Elsie-Rose was born on 20 May, and her parents announced her birth on their respective Instagram accounts. Adam, 29, took to his Instagram account to share a gorgeous picture of Caroline cradling their newborn baby as the couple's son Teddy, and their pet dog also lay on the sofa with the newest addition. "I owe you everything @carolinethomas23," he wrote next to the image. The following day, Caroline shared a gorgeous black-and-white picture of her and her baby girl, where she revealed her beautiful name. "Welcome to the Thomas family Elsie-Rose," she said.
