The family posed together on what appears to be a past holiday with the children in swimwear and wrapped in towels, and Max captioned the image: "My world."

Max George's girlfriend, Stacey Giggs

Max is clearly enamoured by Stacey, and recently called their bond the "strongest relationship" he has "ever had".

He added, "Every day gets more exciting. We're really close; we were from day one. With me moving in with Stacey – because that was her family home – and the kids, you become such a tight unit. We are getting closer every day."

Since dating Stacey, Max has taken on the role of fathering her children from her previous relationship. As for having children of his own, he opened up in a past interview and explained: "I've always said I've wanted kids but never committed to it in my own head, but I think Stacey's the one. We would love to add to the family at some point, that would be amazing. Obviously, there are no guarantees but I'm sure we both feel the same way."

Max and Stacey are now isolating from one another as Max competes in Strictly Come Dancing and has become part of the show's bubble, where he is competing in a partnership with Dianne Buswell.
