Cam Merchant talks about his new role in fatherhood

Cam Merchant talks about his new Fatherhood role, becoming a dad, baby Oliver, and first outing together as a family

From Married at First Sight to Fatherhood we join Cam Merchant, baby Oliver and Jules for a chat about tag teaming, first outing and the pram debacle!

This podcast was recorded on Friday 11 December 2020.


Cam Merchant shares his joy over the birth of baby Oliver. Both Cam and Jules reveal they are over the moon with the birth of their first baby son. During the course of the pregnancy Cam shared his ride to fatherhood on the channel, pregnancy yoga, birthing classes, tour of the birthing room, healthy eating to fitting the baby car seat and more. 

For all first-time dads, sharing his personal experiences allowed a special insight into the role fathers to be can play before the birth, how to be an engaged father during the birth and what to expect in the early days following getting settled at home. Thank’s Cam for sharing your fathering journey with us!
