Little did he know cruel Samantha would kill the twins on Boxing Day at her home in Margate, Kent before ploughing her car into the back of a lorry in a botched attempt to take her own life.

Grief-stricken Steven has spoken out for the first time about those final moments he had with his twins as he claims Ford for not having any remorse – who he now in the process of divorcing.

The 36-year-old said: “Justice was not served, it is still not being served.

“I can’t believe what I’m having to go through when I’m just trying to mourn my children.

“She wants me to suffer. She has no remorse. I don’t hate her because to hate someone you have to feel something towards them in the first place and I feel nothing towards her, absolutely nothing.”

FATHER’S ANGUISH

Steven had only allowed Ford, 38, to have the twins, despite her fragile mental state, because he believed a mum should be see her kids over the Christmas holidays.

He said: “I don’t know how I live with it. How I feel changes every day.

“Trying to come to terms with something like this – there’s not a book, there’s not any advice, there’s nothing that anyone can say or do that will make me feel any better.

“It’s me that’s got to make this right, it’s me that’s got to deal with this, and me that’s got to get through it.”

The Old Bailey heard how the pair met in 2004 and in the early stages of their relationship Samantha was “much more controlling” and “occasionally aggressive” to her husband.

They moved to Qatar in 2008 and spent most of their 10-year marriage living over there where she gave birth to the twins following IVF treatment.

But following their return to the UK in February 2018, the relationship between the Fords broke down and they eventually split in November.

The court heard how Ford Googled how to drown someone in the weeks before the twins were killed.

Ford denied murder but admitted two counts of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

She was sentenced to 10 years to be served in a psychiatric unit until she is well enough to be transferred to prison in August.

Steven slammed the “disgusting” soft sentence and is now pushing for a change in the law.

He said the “hard facts point to premeditated murder”, but the laws surrounding diminished responsibility are “too vague”.

At the time of Ford’s sentencing, Steven told the court the pain of losing his twins is “indescribable”.

He added: “My two beautiful babies were healthy, bright and loving children who had everything to life for.


“I know this will be something I will never got over as long as I live.

“I’m completely helpless in this situation and I don’t know what to do.

“In that moment my life had changed in a heartbeat.”
