The heartwarming clip was shared by Brendan's professional partner, Vanessa Bauer, and it featured the doting dad skating around the rink while he carried his nine-year-old-daughter in his arms. Aurelia's face was hidden during the clip as a relaxing tune played in the background. "We had a little guest today at training," Vanessa captioned the adorable post, adding a father with his daughter emoji.

Alongside Aurelia, Brendan is also a father to son Dante, three, and he shares them with his wife, Zoe Hobbs.

The couple prefer to keep their children out of the spotlight, and when they do share photos of them, their faces are often obscured.

The star melted hearts back in 2020 when he shared a photo of both of his kids as they jetted off to experience a new adventure.

In the snap, Aurelia sat by the window keeping herself occupied, while little brother Dante gave a cheeky smile to the camera. "My gorgeous family. How did you manage to get the solo seat @thezoec," he captioned the photo.

But despite hiding their faces, it was clear to see that they inherited their mother's blonde hair and fair skin.

"Vanessa is the most incredible teacher and coach and friend and she's guided me through every step and that's what I got," he added.
