Wearing matching knitted beanies - one in blue and the other pink - Sam Neill has announced he is now the proud grandfather of "brand new" twins!
The Jurassic Park star introduced his identical twin granddaughters, Molly and Poppy, on Twitter over the weekend with a photo of him grinning while he cuddled the two tots.
His tweet was soon flooded with hundreds of comments congratulating him and his family on their new arrivals.
Neill's big screen career has spanned over 40 years, with lead roles in films such as Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Peaky Blinders and The Piano.
Born in Northern Ireland, the actor moved to Christchurch with his family in 1954.
