We’ve looked forward to this moment for a long time. I can’t express that sense of expectation in words. I’m finally a father! An additional role and responsibility has been added to my life and I will play my role well.

"I plan to accompany Fann in her confinement until the baby is a month old; to accompany them both in this very special and important time.”
