WATCH: Ashley Banjo shares adorable video of daughter Rose

Soon after welcoming his daughter back in March 2019, the 31-year-old Ashley Banjo choreographed the most adorable dance with his baby daughter, his fellow Diversity dancers and their children.

The video caught yet more attention at the time when it was later aired on an episode of The One Show, as Ashley guest presented with Alex Jones. Performed to George Ezra's 'Hold My Girl', the sweet footage sees Ashley begin the performance holding his one-month-old daughter Rose, before joining the group as they dance together with their children.

He captioned it on Instagram: "How could I celebrate 500k followers and Rose's 1 Month birthday!?... Me, @francescabanjo, Rose, the DV boys, the DV mums and their babies were all in the studio together for the first time today! And realised how special what we have as a group of friends and family is... So this is us having some fun to a very special @george_ezra song that helped us capture this moment! Thank you ALL for your support and follows. I appreciate every single one of you."

After it was shown again on The One Show, Ashley took to his Instagram Stories to post a screenshot, writing: "So chuffed they showed the dancing with my little Rosie." Unsurprisingly, the video garnered plenty of comments from fans as well as Ashley's celebrity pals. Coleen Nolan wrote: "This has made me weep it's so beautiful," while Billie Faiers added, "Wow this is amazing," with plenty of love heart emojis.

Ashley and Francesca welcomed baby number two in March 2020

Ashley and his wife Francesca welcomed their little girl in February 2019, and are now also proud parents to another little one! Their youngest, a son named Micah, was born in March 2020 and the proud parents often post snaps of the little one on Instagram.

While Ashley was appearing as a judge on ITV's Dancing On Ice last year, he shared the first picture of his first born, Rose. He wrote on social media at the time: "Our beautiful daughter came into the world at 6:45pm on 21st February 2019 - weighing a healthy 8lbs 13oz. Her name is Rose Adura Banjo. I am in the deepest love ever with my little family. @francescabanjo I love you and am so proud #nextchapter."
