My baby is only 10 weeks old, so for me it's just the simple things like seeing her smile.

What's the most surprising thing about being a dad?

The most surprising thing about being a dad has to be how quickly you adapt to operating on such a limited amount of sleep.

How will you be spending your Father's Day?

This will be my first Father's Day as a dad so I will be heading out for lunch with my wife and daughter- and hopefully getting spoilt.

What's the best piece of advice you've received since becoming a dad?

The best piece of advice I've received has to be to make spending time with your family a priority, every moment you spend with them is special.

How has your style changed since becoming a dad?

My style has changed a bit for sure since becoming a dad. It's certainly more practical and I dress more for comfort. Also now dark colours are a must, babies can be messy.

What would be your dream Aspinal of London father's day present?

My Dream Aspinal of London present would be a weekend bag. As a new father a weekend break with the wife would be just perfect.
