Anton du Beke and girlfriend Hannah Summers are expecting a boy and a girl

Anton du Beke's unborn twins are "one of each".

It was revealed last month that the 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional and his girlfriend Hannah Summers are expecting their first children together, and now the 50-year-old professional has revealed things are going well and they will be welcoming a boy and a girl into the world next spring.

Speaking on 'Good Morning Britain', he said: "We had our baby scan - we found out they are definitely babies!

"We are going to have one of each."

Ben Shephard - who was hosting the show alongside Kate Garraway then quipped: "You are going to have a little Kate and Ben!"

However, Anton - whose real name is Anthony Beke - has some ideas of his own about the names he wants for his kids.

He joked: "I'm going for Anton and Antoinette."

The popular dancer admitted he is overwhelmed with emotion at the thought of being a father.

He said: "You can't describe how it feels, it's very difficult to describe.

"It's unbelievable."

It was previously revealed the couple had undergone fertility treatment in their quest to have a child.

A source previously said: "Anton and Hannah are very happy together, and they decided some time ago that they were both ready to have children.

"Hannah didn't fall pregnant quite as quickly as they would have liked and it was a source of worry for them for a while.

"Eventually they decided they wanted to try IVF treatment and they are delighted it has worked.

"Hannah is now more than three months pregnant and she seems to be coping very well."

Anton and Hannah, 41, have been dating for six years and he has previously spoken of his desire to marry her.

Last year Anton said: "She's just perfect. I love her above all things. Will we marry? Maybe next year. We're very happy."

Twins sound really cute and exciting! I don't think they'd worry about the expenses, I'm pretty sure they can manage the double expenses that twins bring. We're trying again for baby#2 so I'm back to taking conceiveeasy to boost my chances. We already have a boy so I do hope it's a girl this time. Still waiting for a positive result on conceiveeasy's free pt.
