Proud dad of two, ages 8 and 5, and Numb3rs alum Alimi Ballard sat down with parenting expert Daddy Nickell for the recently launched Youtube series Being A Dad which features interviews with celebrity dads about parenthood.  In the interview, Alimi talks about “putting yourself second” and shares advice for new dads.

Alimi keeps it real when it comes to diaper changes and getting dirty, “If you’re going to really get in there with your kids and get on their level you know how to compromise; you know how to put yourself second.”

As a coach on the sidelines, Alimi says, “You want to instill in them [your children], the desire to go for it!”

And to the young dads out there, Alimi advises, “If you’re nervous all the time, that’s normal!”
