Thrilled parents Nicky Byrne and his wife Georgina Ahern hold their newborn twins Rocco and Jay, while her father, the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, beams with pride.
The twins have just recently been able join their parents at home after needing to spend some extra time in the NICU. Rocco and Jay arrived six weeks early, by caesarean on April 21st.
Shortly after their birth the ecstatic 28-year-old revealed he would love them to follow in his musical footsteps rather than politics like their grandfather. “When Georgina was pregnant I used to sing to her and now the boys are born I am still singing to them,” said Nicky, who is clearly hoping his talent rubs off on the duo.
Rocco’s middle name, Bertie, is in honour of the Irish prime minister, while Jay Nick was named after Nicky’s dad. “I am sure Bertie will babysit his two grandchildren, he is well capable… there is no better man for caring for the two babies,” says the boyband star, who enjoys a close relationship with his famous father-in-law.
