This is the heart-warming moment a penguin couple emerge from the ocean holding hands. 

Norma Landeros-Ramirez and her husband were celebrating their honeymoon in Cape Town, South Africa, when they were treated to the adorable sight at Boulders Penguin Colony.

As the black and white pair emerged from False Bay on June 26, their flippers meet as they waddle away from the camera.

Norma said: “Since my husband and I are newlyweds, I wanted to see the penguins because I have heard that they keep one partner for life, so it seemed fitting.

 “They held hands for at least 30 seconds.

“Both had emerged from the water and then began waddling on the beach together.

“They then rested on the beach where other penguins were nesting or mating.”
