Nick Knowles on Becoming A Father

Nick Knowles on Lorraine

Nick Knowles was on ITV’s 'Lorraine' this morning talking about the fall out following his wife saying she
doesn’t want Nick in the room when she gives birth their baby. Speaking to Lorraine, Nick said:

“First of all, she’s the one actually having the baby so her rules go as far as I’m concerned and secondly I think it’s our decision not anybody elses, how we go about it.”

Speaking about the public’s reaction, Nick said the couple have heard from other parents with
similar thoughts:

“The weird thing that that did throw up was that when this came out and there was a big hoo-ha and she got a lot of nasty mail and things which was really sad, we also got a lot of mail from men saying
‘I didn’t really want to be there but I didn’t want to let my wife down’... We got a lot of emails from women saying ‘I didn’t really want him in the room but I didn’t want to disappoint him so I think there’s a lot of people out there, not having this conversation because it’s what everybody expects to happen now. And bearing in mind, I will just be outside the door, it’s not like I’m not in the hospital or out playing golf somewhere… And if she changes her mind halfway through, then she changes her mind this is the
whole process is exactly how she wants to do it and what she wants to do and I back her 100% in whichever way she wants to go with it."

And on getting back to fatherly duties, Nick said:

“I’m really excited about it… you get to the point when you actually just can’t wait to meet them!”

Lorraine gave Nick a Lorraine babygrow for their new arrival and Nick joked:

“We shall treasure that and I think his nickname may be ‘Lorraine’ over the next few months given he’ll be wearing that!”
