The couple, who recently moved to a farm in the Peak District, were last pictured out together at the Olivier Awards on April 10.
Ex-Emmerdale star Kelvin, 38, and his wife previously said they ‘feel so lucky’ to find out they were having two sons.
Speaking to Hello! magazine, Kelvin said: ‘We’ve already got the best of both worlds with Marnie and Milo, so I didn’t mind either way, but finding out we’re having sons is amazing.

‘It was the best day of my life. It was a moment of complete disbelief. I’ve never felt joy like it.’
Liz said: ‘I felt every single emotion under the sun. First, there’s double the worry.
‘I thought about things like breastfeeding, how is that possible with two? How do you pick up two babies at the same time?
‘I felt all of this in the space of 30 seconds. Kelvin was saying it’s a miracle, and I was thinking ‘How are we going to do this?’ But now we can’t imagine it any other way. We feel so lucky.’
Kelvin will be starring in a National Theatre production of Richard Bean’s comedy Jack Absolute Flies Again alongside Caroline Quentin in July.
Congratulations! Liz captioned the post with some sweet words and a host of celebrities sent their well-wishes

He said: ‘It’s the biggest box to tick as an actor to perform at the National Theatre. I can’t wait to get on that stage and act in front of people again.’
Rehearsals kick off next month which Liz admitted could ‘bring some challenges, doing the play as well as farming and raising a family. It’s all going on.’
The pair, who have been married for seven years, made the announcement they were expecting twins during an appearance on BBC Breakfast to talk about their new show Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure.
Revealing the big news, Kelvin admitted the couple ‘don’t do things by halves.’
BBC Breakfast host Sally Nugent prompted the announcement as she asked the couple: ‘You were already quite busy, weren’t you, before you took on a farm, with two young children. And you have news to share with us this morning, which is…’
‘We’re having another two more children!’ Liz gushed. Kelvin looked shocked as his wife joked: ‘You look surprised!’

The former soap star said: ‘We just recently found out, to add another curveball if you like. We don’t really do things by halves and then we found out we’re having not just one baby, but two!
‘So we’re having twins. It was an absolute eye-opener. So come May, we’ll be delivering lambs for the first time. I’m not going to be delivering babies as such but it is going to be a really busy time!’
He added: ‘So yeah, we’ll have four children!’
Kelvin appeared on Emmerdale for more than 20 years, playing the character of Andy Sugden until 2016.
The actor then appeared on Strictly Come Dancing, where he wowed fans with his moves after stepping in for Jamie Laing at the last minute.
He went on to win the Glitterball Trophy with partner Oti Mabuse, sister of judge Motsi Mabuse.
