He posted an adorable photo to Instagram showing the twins helping their dad out.

Anton's tears

Meanwhile, earlier this year, the dancer teared up on Loose Women over his twins.

Anton said Hannah is "the most brilliant and remarkable mum and wife".

He said: "I didn't know whether I wanted to have children or whether that was going to be a thing for me.

"But I knew that if I did have children it would be with the woman I would want to spend the rest of my life with. And it's Hannah.
