They followed that up last Wednesday by having another boy — 330 days later.

The couple, who dated until age 16, got back together two years ago.

Last year Scott ­proposed by having “Mammy will you marry my Daddy?” embroidered on newborn Oscar’s babygrow.

Construction firm boss Scott and Rachel, who runs a beauty business in Hartlepool, County Durham, have not named their latest arrival but cannot wait for lockdown to end so they can show him off.

‘WHIRLWIND’

Rachel said: “The last two years have been a real whirlwind.

“We’ve certainly been busy. I can’t imagine there are any other couples out there crazy enough to have two babies in lockdown.

“I feel like it has brought us all really close together and we’re grateful for that.

“When I pictured my family in my head this is exactly what I imagined, so I couldn’t be happier.”

“I’m delighted to say that mum and both babies are doing brilliantly.

“We’re so happy and I’m very proud of them.”
