One fan wrote: “Congratulations it’s lovely being a grandparent, you can hand them back at the end of the day.”
Another gushed: “Surely you are too young to be a grandad.”
Dean, who is known for playing Robbie on the BBC soap EastEnder’s, is dad to stunning twins Charlotte and Chloe Burge.
Chloe works as a PR for popular clothing brand Pretty Little Thing.
Charlotte and Chloe’s mum is Sarah Burge, who Dean met when he was just 15.
They dated for 22 years, but split in June 2015 – not long after Dean addressed pictures which appeared to show him looking close to another woman.
Even though his relationship with their mum didn’t work out, Dean is very close to his daughters and regularly posts snaps of them on Instagram calling them “beautiful” and referring to them as his “princesses”.
