He said he and his wife “always knew there was a chance” she would give birth during the game.

He added: “Lizzie backed me and made it an easy decision for me to play the game.

“I got to the ground when she was being taken to the labour ward but she told me to concentrate on the game.

“I didn’t know the girls had been born when I ran off the pitch at the end.”

Speaking to the BBC’s Good Evening Wales programme, Day said they were all doing well.

He added: “There were two precious little girls waiting for me when I got here.”

His wife said they were delighted with their newborn daughters: “Joe turned up for the nice bit, to have cuddles. We’re absolutely over the moon and the midwives have been so good with me.”

Sophia Grace and Emelia Lillie were born at about 20:20 GMT.

Day explained that he did not know he had become a father until he got into his car to drive to the hospital.

“The whole evening was a bit surreal,” he said.

“To beat Middlesbrough 2-0, to get through to play Manchester City in the fifth round of the FA Cup, playing the game, winning, two twins being born – I’m feeling very lucky and proud of Lizzie.”
