Joel Edgerton and his long-time partner Christine Centenera rang in the New Year with a family holiday on the NSW South Coast on Friday.

The 47-year-old actor and his stylist girlfriend spent New Year’s Eve at the beach with their eight-month-old twins, in their first public sighting.

The first-time parents were seen doting on their children as they splashed around in the shallows of the water.

The family appeared to have made a couple of trips to the beach throughout the day, with Joel initially wearing a pair of black boardshorts with a wide-brim straw hat.

He later returned in a pair of dark blue boardshorts, which he paired with a grey knit beanie and a pair of sunglasses.

The Red Sparrow actor took turns holding both twins – seemingly a boy and girl – as he ventured into the water with them one at a time.
