Prince Albert of Monaco couldn't contain his smile after he was gifted a football shirt which read "Best Dad" on the back at the weekend. The father of twins posed with his wife, Princess Charlene, as the pair welcomed the Monaco FC players at the Monaco Principality Palace with their young son, Prince Jacques. Speaking about the special day, the princess said: "This is a remarkable achievement for the team and an inspiration for our young people in the Principality... Jacques was keen to join us and he loves running around in his AS Monaco shirt so it was great to be able to introduce him to the team on this special occasion. He was fascinated by the trophy - just like all of us in fact!"

The two-year-old prince wore a football shirt which read 'Jacques' on the back as the family posed with football club. His twin sister Princess Gabriella, Countess of Carladès, wasn't present at the event, but little Jacques was in good company as he met the professional footballers.

Prince Albert recently spoke about raising his twins, he told People: "Fortunately for Charlene and for me, [sleep] was never really an issue. Gabriella and Jacques were relatively good sleepers from the start. Of course, there were — still are — nights where they have to be in the bedroom with us. I know it seems very common sense, but having a separate room — in our case a nursery — or even a separate area prepared makes it easier for both parents to get some sleep in turns."

Following the twins' births back in 2015, Albert told People: "[Fatherhood] changes your outlook. You learn to think more ahead. I kind of knew I would be evolving. Other fathers told me that, and it's true. You have to take your time, take advantage of every moment you can because it goes by so quickly."
