Frankie Essex has given birth to twins.
The Only Way is Essex star, who is the sister of former co-star Joey Essex, has welcomed a boy and a girl into the world with her partner Luke Love.
She told OK!: ‘Double the love. Our baby bears have arrived.’
In February, the 34-year-old reality star, who has been in a relationship with Luke for three years, revealed she was pregnant with twins.
She admitted it was a huge ‘shock’ at the time – but said the story of how they found out was ‘really lovely’.
‘The lady scanning me was focusing on one baby and was then like, “What else do we have here then?” and I was so shocked and asked, “Are we having twins?”
‘I burst out crying, tears of happiness. It was just so beautiful. It was lovely,’ she told New! magazine and OK! online.
Frankie revealed that she and Luke opted for ‘an early scan’ because they ‘were so excited.’
She also added that twins don’t run in her family ‘as far as we all know’, and her babies are non-identical.
It’s clearly baby season in Essex, as Frankie’s news come hot on the heels of the arrival of Lucy Mecklenburgh’s new daughter with fiancé Ryan Thomas.
Jess Wright also welcomed her first child with husband William Lee-Kemp this month, while Sam Faiers had her third baby with partner Paul Knightley.
In March, former Towie cast member Frankie revealed she expecting a boy and a girl following a gender reveal party.
Her brother Joey shared clips from the celebration on his Instagram Story.
In one, Frankie was joined by her cousin Chloe Sims.
She then took to the mic to thank her guests for coming and urged them to go into the garden to watch some fireworks to find out whether she was expecting boys, girls, or ‘one of each’.
She said: ‘Everyone come outside and celebrate with us. We are so excited.’
Joey then shared a video of blue and pink fireworks exploding in the sky, before panning the camera over to Frankie, who celebrated by kissing Luke.
He captioned his post: ‘A proud brother about to become an uncle, congratulations to my sister and Luke. Boy and girl.’
Frankie had previously shared that Frankie’s ‘face was the best’ when he found out about her baby news.
