Fans loved the insight into his bedtime routine and commented: “His little arm around his Dad’s neck,” and, “Ahhh, look at his little arm wrapped around you,” while a third added: “So sweet.”
Ant shares his youngest child with his ex-wife, Christina Hall, who is now married to Josh Hall. His sweet reunion comes in the wake of reports that Ant is set to tie the knot with Renee.
