Ex-Bachelor star Sam Wood has stepped out for the very first time with two of his daughters, toddler Willow and the newest addition to the Wood family, two-and-a-half week old Charlie.

The doting dad shared a pic to Instagram of the trio taking a walk - well, Sam was pushing his little girls in their luxe Bugaboo pram - in chilly Melbourne on Thursday.

“First road trip with both my little babies today. You got this Dad,” the 34-year-old captioned the happy snap.

An icy reception

The photo has received a somewhat icy reception from fans on social media, who have taken issue with Sam’s decision to take his daughters outside on what one follower called “one of the coldest days.”

"It’s freezing and you’re taking the kids out, ahh my lord Sam come on!!!" chastised one, while another added, "Looks like you’re in freezing cold Melb lol."

"Bloody cold day for Charlie’s 1st road trip, lucky you didn’t all freeze or fly away. I’m tipping you will stay indoors tomorrow," said one.

Another follower was concerned about the newborn’s position in the pram.

"Please please please ensure you check on bub regularly with that sheet covering the pram. Personally I hate to see that,” they advised.

Despite the dad-shaming, it appears that Sam had things under control, having made sure one-year-old Willow was sufficiently rugged up in long pants, a snuggly jacket and a knitted beanie.

While baby Charlie was tucked away from view, we assume that neither Sam nor his wife, Snezana - who share three kids between them - would’ve allowed her to venture outdoors underdressed.

And baby makes five

Proud parents Sam and Snez welcomed Charlie Lane Wood on July 23, and announced her arrival on Instagram the following day.

Charlie is the pair’s third daughter, joining Willow, who was born in 2017, and 14-year-old Eve, from Snez’s previous relationship.

The couple fell in love on the third season of The Bachelor back in 2015 and tied the knot in Byron Bay late last year.
