Speaking to the Daily Telegraphthe 38-year-old dad-to-be said he learned many lessons from the jobs he had in his twenties.

“It was a great way to learn how to walk in to a room and be a gentleman and have to talk and make the guests feel comfortable, whether I was in an outfit or not wearing a shirt, it was about making the guests feel welcome,” Tim told the publication.

“Those skills prep you to start a conversation and be comfortable in a room full of people, which helps in a lot of different situations now.”

The first Australian Bachelor added that despite having certain associations with the job, being a topless waiter had its perks.

“Although being a topless waiter has other connotations, it actually teaches you life lessons that are good in many ways.”

Tim previously chatted to news.com.au about his topless waiting past and explained: “We did a few hens’ nights and it was just all about making the girl feel special and serving them champagne and whatnot.”

Tim isn’t the only former Bachelor who has worked as a topless waiter.

Season two’s Blake Garvey worked in the same industry and told Perth Now that it was “tame” and that he “wasn’t sleazy in any way.”

The controversial Bachelor who infamously dumped Sam Frost after proposing to her also claimed that his topless waiter days helped convince the show’s producers to select him for the leading man role.

“I don’t think it hurts having someone that you know can talk to groups of women,” he told the publication.

Tim’s topless waiter days are well and truly behind him – , the chiropractor who also had an acting stint on Neighbours is patiently awaiting the arrival of his first child with wife Anna Heinrich, 33.

The couple met during the first season of The Bachelor that aired back in 2013 and Anna stole Tim’s heart in the romantic finale.

“I am falling madly and deeply in love with you … and it feels so good to finally be able to tell you,” he sweetly told her at the time.

Fast forward five years and Tim and Anna tied the knot in June 2018 in a lavish Italian wedding ceremony before announcing their exciting baby news in May 2020.

The Bachelor OG couple revealed that they are having a baby girl at their gender reveal party but as Anna’s November due date draws closer, Tim reflected on the pregnancy journey.

Tim shared a series of snaps from when Anna was just out of her first trimester, including a sweet one of him kissing her belly. 

“Counting down the days… 6 months ago she was just a tiny bump… can’t wait to meet you!” the excited dad-to-be penned.

Anna recently shared her own pregnancy update with an adorable video of her unborn baby moving around inside her belly.

“When you think she couldn’t go any further to the left… she does!” the lawyer captioned the clip, pointing to where her bump was moving with arrow emojis.

We can’t wait until Baby Robards’ arrival!
