Kieron Richardson says life with twins Chase and Phoebe Ray and husband Carl Hyland is magical

‘I treat every day as Father’s Day because I’m so grateful and blessed’: Hollyoaks star Kieron Richardson says life with twins Chase and Phoebe Ray, five, and husband Carl Hyland gets more magical every year

Kieron Richardson says Father’s Day gets more magical every year after he welcomed his beloved twins with husband Carl Hyland five years ago.

The 36-year-old actor – who plays Ste Hay in Hollyoaks – and partner Carl are parents to Chase and Phoebe Ray through a surrogate mother.

And the twins are especially cherished by the couple after the surrogate had failed attempts before getting pregnant on the third.

Kieran told the sunday people: ‘This is now our fifth Father’s Day and every year it just gets more magical.

“The kids are now at an age where they have their personality. I just treat every day as Father’s Day because I am so grateful and blessed.

“It’s about appreciating your parents and being grateful for everything they do. Every day is a Father’s Day for us because it was something we thought was unattainable.

“I am so grateful to have these two wonderful children in our lives and to give them the best education we could ever imagine.”

Kieron said he looks forward to opening homemade cards and gifts from their children at home on Father’s Day.

The soap star came out as gay on This Morning 12 years ago to host Phillip Schofield.

He married his long-term partner Carl in April 2015 in a ceremony in the Peak District.

The couple announced in December 2016 that they were expecting twins and in 2017 they welcomed Chase and Phoebe Ray into their family.

When Kieron came out in 2010, his character on Hollyoaks came to terms with his own sexuality when he fell for bad boy Brendan Brady.

While gently helping Kieron come out in 2010, Phillip told him, “Sure this is on television and this is part of a character, but there are elements here that are actually very close to your life itself. And what would that be?’

Kieron then revealed his truth when he replied, “The fact that I’m gay in real life and at 20 I’ve kind of accepted it myself. Now I can finally empathize with my character Ste, that he is 20 and going through things that I have been through in my past.’

Phillip added: “The people who know you will know this isn’t a big surprise there because your friends know it, your coworkers know it, you’ve had the talk with your parents but you never really said it out loud. †

Kieron looked nervous and continued to say that during his time on Dancing On Ice earlier that same year, bosses offered him the chance to reveal his sexuality on the show.

He declined because he didn’t want his personal life to overshadow his time in the competition.

Keiron said, “But now I feel it’s relevant and the storyline is relevant to some situations in my life and if I could maybe help people going through the same thing, that’s a bonus.”
