Kelvin has previously gushed about how much he loves being a dad, telling OK! Magazine "I never imagined I could be so obsessed with a little person. I knew I'd be hands-on, but fatherhood is incredible."

He also told how Eliza had had a dramatic labour the first time round, revealing she'd needed a blood transfusion.

Thankfully both Marnie and Eliza were fine.

Eliza announced her pregnancy with a snap on Instagram in August.

She wrote alongside it: "So much to look forward to this year! Feeling so lucky and excited for our family of 3 to become 4."

While Kelvin settles into 2019 with his brood, fans of Emmerdale are still calling for his return.

He's often contacted on Twitter asking when he's going to make a return to the soap.

But as he's busy carving a new career as a rally car driver, and juggling that with other TV projects, such as Scottish drama The Shore on Netflix it doesn't look likely it'll be any time soon.

ED! have contacted Kelvin's rep for comment.
