Cornish Olympian Helen Glover has given birth to baby twins and the first photo is adorable!

The Penzance rower shared the news on Twitter and Instagram, with the caption "we're gonna need a bigger boat".

The tots will be siblings to little Logan, who is described as "setting the pace" and pleased to meet the pair.

Judging by the hashtag and trousers, the new arrivals are a boy and a girl!

"We’re gonna need a bigger boat!

"Welcome to the world little ones. Your big brother is already setting the pace and is so pleased to meet you 💙

"Tips for surviving 3 under 2 on a postcard please".

Helen's husband, TV adventurer Steve Backshall, also tweeted a photo, saying it is like being born with a soulmate!

"Being a twin is like being born with a soulmate.

"A best friend always on hand to play, fight, argue and make up stories with. And Helen should know, being a twin herself.

All I know is that life is about to get double the crazy and we couldn't be happier!"

Steve Backshall on Twitter

From all at Pirate FM, huge congratulations Helen and Steve!
