An American mother has praised her former partner for being a great father, although he “doesn’t pay a dime” of child support.
Jessica Singleton shared a public Facebook post praising Jon Megason’s efforts as a dad to their two-year-old son, Pierson.
“This is a man who doesn’t pay a dime through the state because when my son needs new clothes, I just call him.
“This is a man who buys a bundle of kids’ movies on Vudu so even I can enjoy them with my son in my own home.
“A man who drops off the $45 box of pull-ups at my front door so I don’t have to load him up and go to the store. One who takes his son in 10 min notice far often than he should because I have too much to get done or just need a nap.”
Singleton says her ex accepts her new relationship and tells his son “not to forget mummy’s boyfriend” when the toddler is listing his favourite people.
“This is the diaper-bag-wearing, chocolate-milk-making, selfless, protective, generous, accomplished father to my son,” she adds.
Although the pair are no longer together the Florida dad is said to be there as a shoulder to cry on. He’s also praised as a handyman who “rushes over” to fix things in Singleton’s house.
