But in 2013 he met partner Amy, 28, who “was not fazed” by his injuries and they had children India, six, and Roman, four.
They were joined by identical twins Cruz and Amaro with brother Royle in April.
Amy, of Birmingham, West Mids, said: “We were in shock when we saw three babies at the 12-week scan.
“It can be challenging for Tyne at times but he does an amazing job.”
Nine years ago Tyne’s leg was blown off from the knee down and the main arteries in his hands were severed causing a loss of hand mobility. He initially thought the trauma had left him infertile.

He said: “It is hard to comprehend what I have been through, it is a bit of a blur but I remember the day I stepped on the explosive.
“Doctors didn’t know if the explosive had affected my fertility and at the time as the impact of standing on a bomb could have ruined my sperm count completely.
“It was a lot for me to deal with, never mind somebody else, so I didn’t want to become a burden to anyone.”
