“On the 16th of June, my partner Liz gave birth to our beautiful little girl, Genevieve,” Sam wrote. “It has been a whirlwind time but we could not imagine life without her now. Mum and Evie are doing well and it’s so amazing to be home with them both.

“We are absolutely in love with this little bundle and rolling with the happy chaos. We can’t wait for what’s to come and to watch little Evie grow up … although not too quickly we hope!”
