It was back in January of this year when my future got flipped upside down and I knew my life was going to change forever. (n.b. :  I did not get shipped out to Bel Air by my Aunt). There we were, sat around the coffee table in front of the TV, eating our dinner – just a regular evening like any other. As I devoured the mouthwatering morsels in front of me, some space began to clear on my plate. At this point it is worth mentioning that my fiancée had been acting a little strangely that evening, disappearing upstairs for a few minutes here and there, and wearing a cheeky look on her face. This in itself is not unusual, but deep inside I just knew that something was up…

Ok, so back to the meal. As I popped a particularly generous forkful of food into my grateful mouth, I spotted something strange on the plate. There were some black lines hiding underneath the broccoli and as I swept the veggies aside I felt that surge of adrenalin that perhaps only those who have experienced this may fully understand…

Yes, this was how I found out I WAS GOING TO BE A DAD! Amazingly, I managed to not choke on a carrot and just stared wide-eyed across the sofa to my better half, who was shaking, giggling and giddy with excitement, as was I. She had always said that when this moment happened she would find a novel way of telling me and that she did.

It had been a long road for us to get to this point. Not as long or as arduous as some we know, I might add, but a journey that had tested us nonetheless. Tested us and also brought us closer together and made us stronger.

We sat back on the sofa, held each other and began to wonder about what the next 9 months, and many more years to come, might have in store.
