The happy couple confirmed their babies, a boy and a girl, had arrived to OK! Magazine, saying they were “over the moon” and they had received “double the love. Our baby bears have arrived.”
They also shared a sweet photo of their new journey into parenthood of doting dad Luke holding two baby car seats as they left the hospital.
Frankie is well prepared for her new arrivals, having revealed their incredible nursery and splashing out on a brand new Mercedes SUV ahead of the birth.
She previously said she couldn’t keep her pregnancy under wraps thanks to her extreme nausea in her first trimester.
Frankie explained how she conceived quickly after coming off contraception and presumed her missed period was a result of her body adjusting to life without the pill.
“I didn’t have a period for a couple of months when I stopped everything. Then I had my period, and wrote that down,” she told new.
“The next month came along and I didn’t have one, so I just assumed they were messed up from coming off contraception.”
Frankie added: “I left it for another two weeks. Then I just bought a pregnancy test to see. I did it and it came back positive! I was so shocked, I didn’t tell Luke for a week.
“I was trying to keep it a secret, so I could tell him on his birthday. But then I had such bad morning sickness that I couldn’t wait any longer.”
The reality star shared the adorable way she broke the news to her partner of three years.
“I got him a little card where you had to wear 3D glasses to see it. It said, ‘You’re going to be a daddy’,” she explained.
“He was so happy, he was speechless and gave me a big cuddle. I cried tears of joy, it was a really emotional moment.”
But the good news was going to keep coming when they found out they were pregnant with not one, but two babies.
“We had an early scan as we were so excited. There are no twins in the family and we conceived naturally. They’re not identical,” Frankie explained.
“It was such a shock, but it’s a blessing and we are so over the moon. It’s amazing. As soon as we told the family, I asked if twins run on either side and as far as we all know, they don’t.”
She also gushed about Luke and the amazing support he was during her tough first few months of pregnancy.
“He doesn’t let me lift a finger! We’ve just moved into our new house, which is getting renovated, so I can’t help but try to help and he’s like, ‘What are you doing?,” Frankie said.
“If he catches me trying to vacuum, he’ll just take it off me!”
Frankie rose to fame on Towie alongside her brother, Joey, but hasn’t appeared on the Essex based series since 2016.
She is not just a TV personality but also an entrepreneur, with her own hair styling and product company Frankie Essex Hair.
Frankie started dating Luke in 2019 after breaking things off with John Lyons in 2015.
She told Closer in 2019: “He treats me well and is very, very, supportive in every way, we’re good together.”
