In a post on his Instagram account, Ivan shared side-by-side photos of his daughter as a baby in 2009 and his newborn son. 

"In 2009 God Romanced me in the most breathtaking way with the most beautiful girl. 11 years later he blessed me with this beautiful boy. It's a surreal moment becoming a parent on two, I could actually feel how my heart expanded. I never knew I could love this much. What a humble honour to be your Dad. I promise to always do my best. May both of your journeys be filled with God's love, joy, kindness, courage, compassion and adventures [sic]," he wrote.
