EASTENDERS actor Stephen Rahman-Hughes has certainly got his hands full following the arrival of twin boys – just 18 months after his wife gave birth to their daughter.
The actor, who played Adam Bateman on EastEnders until 2019, shared a tearful picture of him proudly cradling his new baby boys following his wife’s labour, also announcing their names.

In a heartfelt post, the chuffed dad wrote: “Big news! Today my life took a massive twist. TWINS!!
“I am astonished and in pieces after seeing my wife [Anjali Mehra] do it again but this time delivering 2 beautiful boys.
“We are beyond happy that Sonny & Remy have joined our clan and that they had such a beautiful arrival.”
“If only Juney was here to welcome her new grandsons. That would have been even more perfect. It couldn’t have gone more smoothly – some will remember that Anj had an incredibly difficult experience delivering Aphra (only 18 months ago ),” he added.
The star also opened up on the pair’s desperation for children – even if the surprise arrival blessed them with more kids than they bargained for so quickly.
“They say ‘double the trouble but double the joy’ and we fully expect to have a riotous time with our 3 little precious angels,” he said.
“We wished and tried for so long patiently hoping for children. We have been truly blessed and are so grateful.
“Thank you to the team [at St. Georges] for their diligence, patience and painstaking hard work in these most challenging times for [the NHS] . The staff we encountered showed so much compassion and care under trying conditions.
“We are filled with gratitude. Our heartfelt thanks. We can’t wait for you all to meet them: much love from us. Stephen, Anj, Aphra, Sonny Rain and Remy Jude x”
Stephen’s character Adam certainly caused a stir in the Square while he was there, initially coming across as a good guy and potential love interest for Honey Mitchell.
However, he was revealed to be a serial cheat, and his time on the Square ended with him getting hit in the face with a bin in 2019 once his philandering was found out.
Since leaving Walford, actor Stephen has been treading the boards on the West End, performing in Rock of Ages, Aladdin, and Mrs Warren’s profession.
He also appeared in the cast of Netflix’s adaptation of Matilda: The Musical as a Miracle Parent.
