It’s been one month since Richard Branson’s daughter Holly gave birth to her twins – a baby girl Etta and baby boy Artie. “Sometimes miracles come in pairs…” she tweeted alongside a cute picture of her twins sleeping all wrapped up together in a star-print blanket.
And her Virgin boss dad Richard, 64, is clearly enjoying spending time with his new grandchildren, who were born on December 20. “Enjoying a wonderful few days in Oxfordshire with Holly and Freddie, getting to spend some quality time with their new baby twins, Etta and Artie,” he wrote on his blog.
And like any new grandparent he admits that the temptation of sharing cute photos of them is too great.
“I’ve been trying to stop myself from posting too many photos of our gorgeous new grandchildren, but like any proud grandad I can’t resist!” he blogged. “I’m sure that Joan and I – and many, many other family and friends – will be all too happy to pay many, many visits to see the beautiful babes. As my dear Uncle Charlie, who spends most of his time over in Kenya, said to Holly: ‘Have Nappies, Will Travel’!”
Richard will soon have another grandchild to get posing in front of his camera. His son Sam Branson is also expecting a baby with his wife Isabella Calthorpe – and her due date was only a few weeks behind Holly’s. “We’re so excited for Bellie and Sam’s baby to join the family in the not-too-distant future too,” Richard added. “Prepare yourself for more photos from more proud grandparents.”
