Made in Chelsea favourite Ollie Locke and his husband Gareth spoke exclusively to OK! on the National Television Awards red carpet tonight.
The pair announced they had welcomed twinsApollo Magnus Obi and Cosima Emily Bex via surrogacy just a couple of weeks ago, this glittery event at London's O2 Arena marked a drastic switch in their routines.
"This is officially our first night out," said Ollie, 36, while Gareth pointed out: "We feel like we've left something behind…"
"It doesn't feel right leaving the house," added his famous husband, before confessing how he's "looking forward to a glass of wine".
Asked whether they feel as though this NTAs blowout was well-deserved, it was alluded to that raising two little bundles was "not the easiest thing in the world".
"[They're] just past the two-month mark of them being born, so it's been amazing. It's gone quite quickly actually!" Ollie told OK!
"Waking up with babies is very different because there's a purpose to it," he reflected, before joking how they both know when to have their last glasses of wine these days.
Elsewhere, fans of the couple can catch up on all things fatherhood via their YouTube channel 'Our Daddy Diaries'. One episode saw the proud parents opening up about the babies' stint in the neonatal intensive care unit.
"The babies were actually born six weeks ago. It has been a scary time. They have been in neonatal intensive care for quite a long time. They’re all perfect and really doing well and now they're home," announced the black-haired reality TV personality.
Gareth chipped in: "It was something that we just didn’t want to share until we had them safe back home with us and all part of the family."
Just a few months ago, Ollie was part of Channel 4's presenting team on Save Our Sperm opposite comedian Russell Kane and radio DJ Melvin Odoom, as the trio aimed to educate viewers on male infertility.
"We were in a position to show men across the country that it’s not just females that struggle with fertility, but men and their lifestyles are very much a part of the struggles of miscarriage and fertility,’’ Ollie said in a statement.
"Micro plastics are a huge problem in our age that is potentially the biggest problem we have towards sperm reduction and genetic defects.
"Get tested, if you or your partner have been trying for some time unsuccessfully, BOTH go and get checked. Sperm abnormalities are really common, and men have historically blamed women. In most cases it’s really simple to change your lifestyle, and in three months your sperm should be in great health," he went on to stress, speaking from his own experiences.
Save Our Sperm saw the three stars experimenting over an 8-week period, with Ollie revealing that microwaving takeaway food in plastic containers and drinking from plastic water bottles can reduce sperm quality.
Didn't manage to catch the show? Not to worry, Save Our Sperm is available on 4OD right now.
