“It’s brilliant. Victoria is very well. She is sitting up drinking champagne and has spoken to the other girls. It’s something I’ve always wanted, it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. It was very exciting but also a little bit scary. There were no complications. It was lovely.” – proud papa David on the birth of his first born child.
“Hmm …. well, you know when you get a TV you get a manual? Well, there isn’t one for motherhood. I’m constantly trying to figure it out and questioning whether I’m doing it right. But I’m so proud my kids. They are very well-mannered. We’ve always been very strict with the kids. That’s the way David and myself were brought up. But they’re free spirits as well. They laugh. They joke. They have fantastic personalities. I love hanging out with them.” – Victoria on motherhood.
“It would be easy for our kids to sit back and not work for anything, but they’re not like that. They’re as competitive as Victoria and me. We’re very lucky with our boys: They want to win. They want to work at something. They know their values. That’s the way we’ve brought them up so far, and that’s the way we’ll continue to bring them up.” – David on fatherhood.
