Luxury holiday company owner Geoffrey Kent, 74, has become a proud father to twins with his wife Otavia
The gorgeous twin babies, a boy and a girl, have been named Geoffrey Junior and Valerie by their parents.
Geoffrey Kent is famed for being one half of the duo who founded Abercrombie and Kent, a holiday company specialising in luxury trips abroad, catering for the rich and famous including Hollywood A listers such as Cameron Diaz and Hugh Jackman.
Brazilian born Otavia is 39 years her husband’s junior, and was spotted without a baby bump earlier this month. But the couple have not revealed as yet if they used a surrogate mother to have their twins.
With stars such as Kim Kardashian having a child through surrogacy and Kenya Moore from the Real Housewives of Atlanta fame saying that she’d consider a surrogate for her next child, surrogacy is becoming a popular choice. We’ve even recently seen the first member of the British Aristocracy to be born by a surrogate mother. Viscountess Weymouth revealed in November that her son Henry with her husband, who runs the Longleat Estate in Wiltshire, was born by surrogacy.
Geoffrey is already smitten, saying that Valerie and Geoffrey Junior are “so sweet and cute”
The couple intend to take the babies travelling with them as soon as they can, so that they can experience the same things as their parents.
He went on to say, “‘I’m enjoying being a new father very much. Age is nothing but a statistic. I still run three miles, five days a week.”
Very true. As he’s beaten fellow older father Mick Jagger by a year – the veteran Rolling Stone became a father again at 73.
