A post for my fella @gorka_marquez Because I’ve had a lot of lovely praise in pregnancy but you dads play a huge part in keeping us feeling safe and looked after. From back rubs when baby is lay funny, to getting up in the night with me when I can’t sleep, helping me carry my things, reading with me all the baby blogs, coming to my appointments and encouraging me daily that everything will be ok when push comes to shove. (literally) All of the above you do in between the most hectic work schedule. I feel so lucky to have you in my corner and I’m grateful to have you in my life Gorks. Mini Marquez is so lucky having you as papa
