But while today is all about Dad’s, there’s some other important men Hamish Blake wants us to remember today.
The ‘Very Good Men’.
The Australian comedian, who will spend his Father’s Day with four-year-old son Sonny and one-year-old daughter Rudi in New York City, shared why we need to thank the other men in our children’s lives today.
“I’d like to take a moment on this Day Of Fathers to give a deep nod of thanks to all the Very Good Men (who aren’t fathers) in our kids lives,” the dad-of-two wrote on Instagram this morning.
Having a dad on the team who is so calm, FUN, loving, thoughtful, gentle, courageous, positive, flatulent, evolved, perceptive, good at wood chopping, situationally sensitive, and looks this good in lilac, is beyond what I ever imagined. We won the bloody dadslotto! Dad’s how you do it! Etc. Here’s to this dad, my beautiful dad; all the dads. ????
“Dads are great, as the t shirt I made myself clearly states, but all parents know you need more blokes in your kids life than just Dad.
“Cousins, uncles, teachers, coaches etc. I’m so lucky to have mates who genuinely love our kids.”
The 36-year-old went on to share how he recently spent the night camping in New York City with his oldest child, Sonny, and two of his friends.
“Sonny doesn’t know it yet but making themed hats and camping in a park to play glow in the dark frisbee just to see the joy in a four year olds face is pretty rare for some guys in their mid 30’s to want to do (although we loved it too),” Hamish added.
