Aston admitted that he little interest in marriage before meeting Sarah.
He explained: "I had always said that I was never really interested in marriage and kids. Before meeting Sarah, I just wasn't that bothered. But our relationship built and I thought, 'Yeah, this is the forever one'.
"I was always happy with one kid, but at the same time, I can still carry two, so it's perfect."
