JIMMY BARTEL ON BEING A FIRST-TIME DAD

Haven’t seen our hilarious Kids Chat video starring Jimmy Bartel, Pat Rafter and Pete Helliar yet? Pop on over here (you won’t regret it, it’s hysterical!) As a new-ish dad himself, we took the opportunity to ask Jimmy a few questions on what being a father (to adorable squidgy-face Aston) is like. Does he spend all day squishing his squidgy cheeks? Find out!

What’s the one thing you wish you’d known about being a dad before being a dad?
That everyone will have a different opinion/answer to every parenting problem. Just relax and roll with it and trust your instincts

Kids surprise us every day. How has Aston surprised you?
Just how clever/sneaky they are. Aston has me wrapped around his fat little finger.

How has fatherhood changed you?
I’ve become a big softy now, especially when I watch family-themed TV shows and movies 😂 I get too invested in the characters now.

What do you love most about being a dad?
Going into his bedroom first thing in the morning and seeing his huge smile. I think he is just happy to be released from his cot!

What’s your best piece of Dad advice?
Have something special that you and your kids share just with Dad. My favourite time is Aston’s bath time at night, I find it really helps form that bond between us.

What’s your fave Bonds product and why?
I am a man who loves his basics, so Bonds is perfect for me. Jeans and a plain grey/white Bonds T-shirt and I’m sorted for most days of the week.
