Vernon Kay's daughters make him "cry all the time".

The TV presenter admits his two girls, Phoebe, nine, and Amber, five, with 'Strictly Come Dancing' host Tess Daly have the ability to reduce him to tears and he's become softer after becoming a father.

He told Britain's OK! magazine: "I cry all the time. Whenever the kids do something, I cry. When we were on holiday recently, both our girls performed songs from 'Frozen' at a talent show. I bawled my eyes out!"

Vernon, 40, is glad the couple's children are old enough to take care of themselves a bit more and has enjoyed the new social life that comes with being a parent.

He explained: "They're both independent, they get dressed, clean their teeth, put their school uniforms on and Tess does them a lovely ponytail. There are no nappies or feeds in the middle of the night!

"And you make friends with the parents at the school. That's really nice. I've got a new circle of friends through the kids."

The 'Family Fortunes' presenter recently celebrated his landmark 40th birthday but doesn't feel any different.

Vernon added: "I'm not really bothered. I don't feel old. I feel invigorated - Tess will back me up on that! I still feel like I can go to Ibiza and hit the dancefloor."
