Ben Fogle says become a father is "very magical" and he is "very proud" of his two children

Ben Fogle says becoming a father has been a "magical" experience.

The TV action man admits he's so proud of his two children Ludo, three, and Iona, two, who he has with his wife Marina, and he finds it fascinating that two people in love can create tiny tots who turn out to be so perfect.

He said: "There's something very magical about creating these unique beings with your loved one and bringing them into the world and teaching them life lessons. That makes me so proud."

The 39-year-old adventurer - who has presented several shows including 'Countryfile' and 'Animal Park' - believes his children are likely to follow in his footsteps and could end up flaunting their passion for animals on TV as well.

He added to OK! magazine: "Ludo loves insects and animals - all he wants to do is pick up insects; he has cuddly toys of every type of animal out there. He's got a crocodile tooth that I collected from the bottom of an African river, a rattlesnake skin from Texas, he just loves nature so he's definitely inherited that from me.

"Iona is very strong-spirited but wary, and she definitely takes after Marina."
