As he looked back on his journey, Daniel shared his thoughts, saying, “It’s great. It’s crazy and intense, but he’s wonderful, and Erin is amazing — it’s a real privilege also to have this time with him.” He also noted that he had planned to take a break, acknowledging that such an opportunity isn’t accessible to everyone.

Some things about being a parent can only be understood through firsthand experience.

Daniel shared his thoughts and the hurdles he’s faced while looking after his baby boy, giving us a glimpse into his experiences as a new parent, “It’s frankly terrifying to have a human being in the world that I care this much about, and that everything he does is going to affect how I feel about my life for the rest of my life. So, you know, that’s intimidating.”
