Coronation Street actor Jack P Shepherd has played David Platt on the soap for a massive 18 years - and he's not exactly had an easy ride of it. Thankfully, he regularly looks after two of his beautiful children to take his mind off the harrowing plots in his day-to-day job.

Although he didn't previously share many photos of his two children with ex-fiancée Lauren Shippey, Nyla and Reuben, he has taken to posting more and more pictures of the youngsters recently - and they are VERY sweet.

His recent post of nine-year-old Nyla and five-year-old Reuben has melted the hearts of many, as it shows the two of them snuggled up together whilst asleep with some little cuddly toys in there too.

He captioned the photo, 'My heart melts. 😍'

Nyla and Reuben are Jack's two children with his ex-fiancée Lauren Shippey, who he was with for 15 years. He also has a son named Greyson with Sammy Milewski, who was born after he had an affair in 2011.

Although Lauren forgave him at the time, the couple went their separate ways in October last year, and he is now dating Hanni Treweek, who works on the publicity side of Coronation Street.

The couple sparked engagement rumours last month when Jack posted a photo of the two of them together, with the caption, 'She said yes.'
