Doting dad Grant Denyer has gushed over how much he loves his two young daughters in a sweet post on social media, thanking them for bringing so much love and joy to his life.

The television presenter, who is expecting a third child with wife Chezzi in March next year, took to Instagram this week to share photos of the family’s Halloween celebrations. His two daughters Sailor and Scout dressed up for the joyous occasion, looking as adorable as ever wearing their scariest of costumes.

But it was the message he wrote alongside the snaps of his children that really warmed hearts around the country as he shared how much the two mean to him.

“You two crazy units are the loves of my life,” he wrote. “Love your creativity, jealous of fearlessness and overwhelmed by your kindness and love. Every day is such a joy with you both. Thanks for the laughs and the many, many cuddles.”

The post created a lot of attention, with fans quick to comment on how lovely his words were and how beautiful it is to see the connection the presenter has with his family.

“I hope these beautiful sentiments you write here for your gorgeous daughters you also keep in a journal and continue writing such things,” @craigyounganand wrote. “As one day the overwhelming joy your words will give them at a time in decades to come, you won’t be there to articulate yourself.”

While @marlenedavey commented: “Adorable girls and I think they get their craziness from their dad.” And @helenletos added: “Lovely words Grant. You look great girls. Hope you had a happy Halloween.”

The adorable message comes weeks after Grant’s wife Chezzi opened up about their daughter’s surprise medical diagnosis in a touching post shared on social media. The mother-of-two revealed that eldest daughter Sailor, eight, was recently diagnosed with Inattentive ADHD. Symptoms of the inattentive form of ADHD include: missing details and becoming distracted easily, trouble focusing on the task at hand and becoming bored quickly.

“Little Sailor D, couldn’t have been more proud of you this weekend,” Chezzi wrote on Instagram. “Not because you tried really hard. Not because you practiced so much. Not even because you won the 9 years Champion.”

“But because this year after discovering you have Inattentive ADHD and as a family making some big adjustments to help you more with this, your understanding of yourself and the pride you took in overcoming your fears gave you so much more confidence up on the stage.”

She added: “I’m always proud of you, but I’m so much more in awe of you after this weekend. And a special mention to Kristie from Encore Speech & Drama for your brilliant guidance over the years. Thank you.”
