The amazing photo of brotherly love – story in the Daily Mail newspaper…
Twins Indy and Jaxen Tackas-Marriott hold hands in support – captured on camera by their mother Francesca.
A photo really can just tell the story. And this is the moment a newborn baby reached out to his twin – who faced undergoing immediate treatment to save his life.
Youngest twin Indy had a chest infection and a nurse had just explained to his anxious parents that he urgently needed to go onto an antibiotic drip.
But as the nurse was explaining she suddenly stopped in amazement as she saw oldest brother Jaxen reach over the take his baby brother’s arm. And in that moment Indy put out his hand and his big brother clenched it.
Mum Francesca, 27, a hairdresser, who gave birth to the naturally conceived non identical twins, said: “Everyone was amazed. Even medical staff came in to see them.”
The babies were born weighing 7Ib and 6Ib 1oz. They are now both home but continue to be inseparable.
According to their parents, Francesca Tackas and dad Aaron Marriott, they still often sleep together and often link hands.
Daily Mail photographer David Crump visited the family at their home and took more amazing photos of the gorgeous little boys snuggled up to one another.
Francesca tells me: ‘Jaxen is already the big protective brother with Indy looking up to him. We feel so blessed to have twins and it is such a joy watching them grow up together.’
