Ross Kemp has announced that his wife Renee O'Brien has given birth to twin girls and they've named them Ava and Kitty
Ross Kemp has named his newborn twin daughters Ava and Kitty.
The 53-year-old actor announced yesterday (28.09.17) that he had become a father for the third time after his wife Renee O'Brien gave birth and, although he likes to keep details of his family life close to his chest, he has revealed their sweet monikers.
Taking to his Instagram account last night, the former 'EastEnders' star uploaded a photograph of Renee with the newborns and accompanied it with the caption: "Mum, Ava and Kitty doing well! Dad overjoyed. Thanks to all at the hospital! (sic)."
Ross shared his happy news with the world on social media just a few hours after the birth but he didn't reveal at the time that the pair had welcomed twins.
He said: "BIG THANKS to Lawrence Impey and his team. Very happy Dad again!"
The girls join Ross and Renee's other son, who was born in 2015.
The investigative journalist also has a boy with his ex-partner Nicola Coleman.
Meanwhile, Ross' happy news comes just months after Sky decided to axe his 'Extreme World' series, which saw him document homelessness, drug addiction, violence and poverty around the world, after six years on screen.
A spokesperson for the channel said previously: "Our focus for Sky1 this year is offering customers even more great drama, comedy and factual entertainment. Going forward we are shifting away from commissioning factual shows on the channel, and 'Ross Kemp's Extreme World' will be coming to an end after its upcoming series."
Although Ross was hoping to bag himself another series next year, he's not completely disheartened as bosses have promised him something exciting in the future.
And that's not the only door that has opened up for the actor as he's also hoping to reprise his role as bad boy Grant Mitchell in 'EastEnders' sometime this year.
Ross has appeared in the programme on and off since 1990 and saw his hard man alter ego go back to Albert Square temporarily last year when his on-screen mother Peggy (Dame Barbara Windsor) passed away following a lengthy cancer battle.
