Former Neighbours star Blair McDonough was recently praised by parents everywhere for opening up about his struggle to bond with his new baby boy.
Less than a month later, it appears as though their connection is as strong as ever!
The doting dad has taken to Instagram to share an adorable snap of himself spending quality time with his two-month old son Van and daughter Leni, 2.
“My Monkey's. The sleep is sslllooowwwlllyyy getting better, but the excitement in the mornings is too hard to resist! #vanjames #lenirose,” he captioned the pic of the trio in bed.
The actor’s wife Kristi, 35, couldn’t help but repost the adorable shot, penning: “My world.”
Soon after announcing the arrival of their second child back in May, the 36-year-old – who shot to fame in season one of Big Brother Australia – made a candid confession on social media about the trials of fatherhood.
“Bonding is a tricky thing,” he wrote.
“Took me a number of weeks to bond with Leni when she was born and with Van at just over four weeks it’s starting to happen. It’s a welcome relief.”
“As I said, a tricky experience to go through,” he continued.
“He’d been unsettled since 4am and when he hit my chest at 6am he immediately calmed and fell asleep. He’s been snoring in unison with Mum for the past hour and it’s been absolutely lovely. I thought it was timely chance to show some Insta-truth more so than the default Insta-happy.’
“Mothers are phenomenal, but here’s a shout out to the Dads, both new and old. #VantheMan.”
