Tell us, what’s the most exciting thing about being an expectant dad?

The idea of welcoming this new person into the world who has given us the honour of being their parent is really exciting. Being part of their journey and helping them navigate through this world is something I'm looking forward to.

What are you looking forward to the most?
I'm looking forward to seeing the baby for the first time and feeling that overwhelming sense of love that I've heard so much about.

Please describe in 3 words your emotions the day that you found out that you were expecting?
Elation, relief and trepidation.

What’s the hardest thing about having an expectant wife?
I suppose it would be not being able to help carry the load when she's tired and not being able to relieve her and take away the discomfort.

From 1-10, how prepared do you feel for your baby’s arrival?
I suppose one can never be fully prepared for something like this, so I would say 7 out of 10.

What lesson or value do you hope to instil in your child one day?
The greatest value I hope to instil in my child is for her to know that God is always with her and there's nothing she can do to be separated from His unfailing love.

You visited MamaMagic for the first time this year, how was the experience for you?
Visiting MamaMagic for the first was an amazing experience especially for me as a first time dad to see how much is out there but being able to see it all in one place. It helped me get perspective on what we need to prepare for the baby's arrival and compare all the different products and make a better decision on what we need and what we don't need.
