RICHARD_BRANSON3-8 2_iCandy LR

Last week, Sir Richard Branson spent quality time with his three month old twin grandchildren Etta and Artie, taking the twins on a stroll together in Notting Hill with their iCandy Peach 3 Blossom Twin.

Sir Richard Branson is one of the most globally renowned British businessmen in the world, and he clearly demonstrates that his role as Grandfather is now one of his top priorities. The 64 year old entrepreneur became a grandfather for the first time in December 2014, when his daughter Holly welcomed twins with husband Freddie Andrews.

Sir Richard Branson was the first to announce the birth of their twins, writing on his website: “Delighted to share the happiest of news – Holly and Freddie are now the proud parents of a beautiful baby boy – and a beautiful baby girl!”

Famous for its one-hand fold and fashion-forward British design, iCandy’s iconic pushchair has seemed to have won over the British entrepreneur. This is the first time Sir Richard Branson has been pictured in public with his grandchildren, and he seemed to be taking his new role as Grandpa in his stride with the stylish Peach 3 Blossom Twin in Black Magic. With little Artie and Etta all to himself, the new grandfather was seen heading into a luxury nursery store to buy some baby essentials.

RICHARD_BRANSON3-8 2_iCandy LR

In his most recent post, he revealed that he had been taking them out to buy presents for their new little cousin, who had been born days earlier.

‘Very soon the proud parents were able to bring Eva-Deia home to meet her cousins, Etta and Artie,’ he wrote. I popped to the shop for some baby gifts with Etta and Artie in town then we spent a glorious Sunday afternoon together as a family with all three babies.

‘It marked the start of a new life for us all.’

The doting grandfather seemed to be a natural with the pushchair and as he strolled into the store he demonstrated why the Peach 3 Blossom is perfect for parents with more than one child – the single footprint ensures getting through doors is a much more smooth and easy process than it would be with a pushchair that was double the width.

The Branson family is growing fast, in the space of two months the Virgin tycoon has welcomed three grandchildren.

It was Sir Richard who announced Sam’s happy news on his Virgin blog, under a post titled ‘Becoming proud grandparents – again’
