The twins will be the 50-year-old dancer and his partner’s first children. The couple have been together for six years and it is believed that the twins were conceived with the help of IVF treatment.
Anton has been a professional dancer on BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing since the show began in 2004. He has become notorious for being partnered with some of the less ‘talented’ dancers, most notably when he partnered politician Ann Widdecombe in 2008.
He has never won a series however, he reached his first final last year with Katie Derham. Unfortunately, he didn’t fare so well this year, when he and his partner Lesley Joseph were eliminated from the show a few weeks ago. He is however, a much loved Strictly icon and is supposedly in the running to replace judge Len Goodman when he leaves after this series.
