“She’s beautiful. When she came out, she was really alert and her eyes were open. The doctor gave her to her mom and I was so… you know, I was obviously very emotional.” - Eric on the birth of his beautiful baby girl.
“It’s been amazing. It’s challenging, but it’s the greatest thing ever.” – Rebecca on experiencing motherhood for the first time.
“Rebecca was convinced [that she was a boy] and I said ‘Great, we will name him after my father, Billy’ and when we found out it was a girl I said ‘Great, we will name her after my father, Billy.’…Beatrice is after her grandmother.” – proud papa Eric on the reason behind his first born’s name.
“Oh my gosh, she is walking now, she is talking now! She is only 15 months so she has about four words. She says, ‘Mama!’ ‘Dada’ is one, she says, ‘Ball,’ she says ‘Hi,’ and she says, ‘Duck!’” – a gushing mama Rebecca on her daughter’s milestones.
“It changes how you look at things and how you feel about things. I like to think of myself as an artist – but now I’m working for my kid. Now I’m a father. I go to work and I come home and I make sure my kid is taken care of, and I make sure my wife is taken care of.” – Eric on fatherhood.
