Class 95 jock Vernon A, 48, is now a proud father of three boys after his 31-year-old wife, influencer Jayne Tham, gave birth to their second child, Niall, yesterday afternoon (Nov 23). The couple are also parents to Liam, who turns two in January, and Vernon has a 17-year-old son named Ethan from a previous marriage.
“Now I know how my dad feels,” Vernon quipped during his phone interview with 8days.sg this morning (Nov 24). “I also come from a family with three boys, so it looks like the genes are really strong. We were hoping for a girl but it’s okay, I don’t mind three boys. Hopefully they will all grow up to have common interests and keep each other company so they can leave me alone to have some peace and watch my football. (Laughs)”
Jokes aside, Vernon is actually totally cool with being a hands-on dad. He’s currently on a two-week paternity leave to take care of Liam while Jayne does her confinement after being discharged from the hospital on Thursday. In fact, they don’t even plan on hiring a helper — at least, for the time being — as they’ve been doing fine on their own so far.
