THE HEARTBROKEN dad of twins allegedly killed by their mum has shared a picture of him cradling the pair.
Steven Ford said he wanted “the world to see my beautiful babies”, adding “Jake and Chloe forever” in a moving tribute.
It comes after the twins’ mum Samantha Ford, 37, appeared in court yesterday charged with their murder.
The twins, who were due to turn two in January, died in hospital in the early hours of December 27.
The toddlers were found by cops after Samantha crashed her car into the back of a lorry on the A299 near seaside town Whitstable, Kent.
She survived with just minor injuries and officers took her the 15 miles back to her Margate home where they found Jake and Chloe.
Paramedics rushed the children to hospital where they were pronounced dead shortly after arriving.
Yesterday Steven posted another poignant photo online.
He captioned the snap of Jake kissing Chloe: “Daddy’s twins xx”.
He added: “My beautiful babies. I love you”.
Samantha spoke only to confirm her name, age and address when she appeared at Canterbury Magistrates’ Court in Kent yesterday.
Two female security guards stood on either side during the brief hearing, lasting only a few minutes.
