Joe Wicks shared the cutest video with his oldest child to Instagram on Sunday. The fitness expert was sitting in the front seat of his car with his daughter Indie, who turns two in July, was sitting in her car seat behind him. The proud dad started the video by saying: "What are you saying Indie? She's just learned a new word, say it again darling what is it?" The little girl sweetly said: "Body coach," which is how her dad brands himself. The 33-year-old continued: "Body coach. Who's the body coach?" Little Indie replied, "Daddy." "Am I the body coach? Say it one more time then say it again."
