What is the best advice you received prior to becoming a father?
Go with the flow and do your best to find humour anywhere you can, like being covered in poop for example.
What’s one piece of advice you’d give to soon-to-be fathers?
You need to be strong in the tough times. Everyone can do it when things are going smoothly, but there will be days when neither of you have slept. When you think the cycle will never end, you can't figure out what's going on with your baby and it feels like life is ruined, that's the most important time for you to step up and be the rock for your family.
Amidst the chaos of it all, how do you unwind or find some ‘me’ time?
I put a big priority on health and fitness, so my unwind time is usually surfing, going for a jog or doing Jiu Jitsu with some buddies. Anything active really clears my head and gives me that much needed release of endorphins after a few sleepless nights.
How will you be celebrating Father’s Day this year?
This year, my wifey has said she had a surprise planned. I'm partial to a little pampering (hint, hint Stacey) haha, but probably kick-off with a coffee and a family walk along the beach. Then hopefully a nice big lunch with a sneaky wine. Maybe I’ll be off nappy duties that day as well to make it real special.
