Sir Richard gets gooey-eyed over his ‘gorgeous grandchildren’

She’s just become a parent for the first time.

And Holly Branson couldn’t resist sharing some adorable pictures of her twin one-month-old babies on Twitter on Monday.

The daughter of Virgin boss Richard Branson posted the sweet snap of her little girl and boy, Etta and Artie, wrapped up in a spotty blanket while they slept.

Along with the image, she wrote: ‘Sometimes miracles come in pairs.’

The picture had come from a blog posted by the business mogul on his official website, in which he gushes over his new grandchildren.


The 64-year-old tycoon is clearly incredibly fond of his grandchildren and penned a blog about having spent time with them lately.

‘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.

‘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!

‘As the photo shows so clearly, sometimes miracles really do come in pairs!’ he joked.

Richard also talked about his other child, son Sam, who is also expecting a baby of his own soon to add to the expanding Branson brood with wife Isabella Calthorpe.


‘Thanks once again for all of the well-wishes to all of the family following the happy news.

‘We’re so excited for Bellie and Sam’s baby to join the family in the not-too-distant future too. Prepare yourself for more photos from more proud grandparents.’

Holly welcomed her little ones just before Christmas with husband Fred Andrews, and the couple quickly shared a picture of themselves with their children just 10 days after the birth.

Branson wrote on his website at the time of their arrival: ‘Delighted to share the happiest of news – Holly and Freddie are now the proud parents of a beautiful baby boy – and a beautiful baby girl!’

Holly wed Virgin investment manager Freddie Andrews in 2011 and the pair made their exciting pregnancy announcement online back in August.

Taking to Twitter, Holly wrote at the time: ‘Freddie & I are delighted to share some happy news: Sam will become Uncle Sam in the new year!’
