Family: Kelvin Fletcher and his wife Liz Marsland are expecting twins. The ex Emmerdale star and his wife made the announcement during an appearance on BBC Breakfast on Monday 

BBC Breakfast host Sally Nugent prompted the announcement on Monday as she asked the couple: ‘You were already quite busy, weren’t you, before you took on a farm, with two young children. And you have news to share with us this morning, which is…’

‘We’re having another two more children!’ Liz gushed. Kelvin looked shocked as his wife joked: ‘You look surprised!’

The former soap star said: ‘We just recently found out, to add another curveball if you like. We don’t really do things by halves and then we found out we’re having not just one baby, but two!

‘So we’re having twins. It was an absolute eye-opener. So come May, we’ll be delivering lambs for the first time. I’m not going to be delivering babies as such but it is going to be a really busy time!’

He added: ‘So yeah, we’ll have four children!’ 

Kelvin recently bought a farm in the Peak District and the family’s new show follows his ‘baptism of fire’ as he navigates the task with no farming experience. 

During their BBC Breakfast appearance, the couple chatted about how their other two kids are feeling about life on the farm, with Liz admitting: ‘It was different for them – it’s a completely new place, new school, new people.

‘And at first it was just a huge playground to them. And now, Marnie knows all the responsibilities, she knows what needs doing. She knows that this is a job now and we’ve got all these animals we need to look after.’

She continued: ‘Even Milo, he’s doing all the sheep whistling, getting them into the field. And when they’re learning that’s probably the proudest moment, seeing what they’re doing and seeing them grow into this life.’ 

Kelvin announced the couple were expecting back in December and told PA Media: ‘There’s no question that for the Fletcher family the best thing to come out of 2021 is the news that we are expecting again.
