Daddy Owen is relishing the role of daddy to his two children, especially his firstborn son who is already a school-goer.
The gospel music crooner has shared what fatherhood means to him and the tips he uses to bond with his son.
“Fatherhood is okay. Every day I learn something new from the kids. You know being a parent helps one understand better the struggles our parents went through when we were young,” Daddy Owen told the Star.
“Being a father also makes one understand things they could not understand before. I always drop my son to school every morning, despite the fact the school offers an option where one can pay for transport when paying school fees,” he said.
On the rapid expansion of technology in children’s lives, Daddy Owen said:
“Technology has taken over. Instead of them spending all their time in the house playing video games, we take long drives. That’s one way for us to bond and know what’s going on in his life. It’s very important to me. On weekends we also take long drives alone.”
The NHIF brand ambassador and his wife Farida Wambui welcomed their second born in July last year.
In a past interview, Daddy Owen narrated how he almost lost his son after an anomaly with the umbilical cord.
He now uses the experience to spread awareness and encourage men to support their women during childbirth and afterward.
