His twins will turn two this month

Anton Du Beke has shared an adorable photo of himself reading to his toddler twins George and Henrietta.

The Strictly Come Dancing pro posted a picture to Instagram on Thursday showing himself reading a book while his little boy and girl sat facing their famous dad listening to the story.

To mark World Book Day, Anton said he's "very proud" to be supporting the #ShareAStory campaign, which encourages children into reading.

In the photo, George and Henrietta - who will turn two this month - are seen sitting in matching chairs as they faced away from the camera.

As a child I loved reading those books... and I'll admit when I’m reading them to my little ones, I still do!

Doting dad Anton captioned the post: "Happy #WorldBookDay my loves! I’m very proud to be supporting the #ShareAStory campaign to encourage children into reading.

"As a child I loved reading those books... and I'll admit when I’m reading them to my little ones, I still do!

"They were pals we all had in common, and they taught me all about the importance of friendship."

Fans couldn't get enough of the sweet photo as one person commented: "I can't deal with the cuteness."

Another gushed: "OMG! Gorgeous pic," while a third added: "What a fabulous picture."

Anton welcomed his twins in 2017 with his marketing executive partner Hannah Summers.

Last year, the dancer revealed why he waited until he was 51 to have children.

He told the Mirror: "I wanted to be 100 per cent sure that my children’s mother would be the woman I would spend the rest of my life with. As soon as I knew I would be with Hannah forever, I wanted to have children with her."

Anton said at the time that his twins were "doing everything at the same time at the moment" even though they have "quite different personalities".

He added: "George is quite immediate, while Henrietta considers things more - having said this, as soon as she sees a mobile phone she wants it – more than any of her toys."

While chatting to Tess for Heart FM's Confessions Of A Celebrity School Run, he said: "It's the dream. It's absolutely incredible. We are so lucky."
