VIDEO: Ben Fordham on leaving Today, becoming a dad and the time he was almost sent to jail.

Hear, hear, Ben.

A lot is said about why men shouldn’t witness their partners giving birth – apparently it’s like “watching your favourite pub burn down.”

But Journalist Ben Fordham is calling bullshit on that, and says all men should be at their birth of their child.

“What are we worried about what a bloke is watching or seeing? It’s not as bad as anyone is making out,” he tells Mia in the next episode of No Filter.

Watch below for the full interview between Ben Fordham and Mia Freedman. They cover everything from being a first-time Dad, to facing jail over a hidden-camera report for A Current Affair and address the men’s club at channel 9.
