Ben Cohen - Sexy Dad


Getting a baby to behave as the cameras click can be difficult. But Ben Cohen, father of twin girls, had his hands full when he tried to get his daughters to smile together on cue.

The 29-year-old former England rugby star was hoping to recreate an updated version of the classic sepia image of man and child that sold five million Athena posters in the 1980s.

But his wriggling, giggling, five-month-olds Isabelle and Harriett refused to play ball. It took three hours to come up with the final shot of him holding Isabelle, who decided to co-operate for just long enough.


Cohen is the face of the Problem Shared campaign, which supports first-time fathers.
