eHarmony Member Spotlight: ‘Insta-Dad’ Thomas


Is fatherhood anything like you imagined?

Yes, kids were always in mind for me even before I met Ellie. I really enjoy it – it has its challenges, but it’s very, very rewarding.

How was it meeting the children for the first time?

I was nervous, but the kids were very good. They’re easy to get along with and they seemed to love spending time with me. It was a perfect fit.

What is Ellie like as a mother?

Ellie is an amazingly strong person who has been through so much in her life. I definitely think being a mum has helped shape who she is and made her so strong. She is a wonderful mother.

What’s your favourite way to spend time with the kids?

I like when we all go somewhere; like the park, where I can see them all playing together and enjoying themselves. I love kicking around the football with the kids.

How do you and Ellie keep the spark alive in your relationship?

Our spark doesn’t die because I feel we communicate, and we still make time for date nights.

What relationship advice would you pass onto your kids?

Always treat your partner with respect.

What advice would you give to other ‘insta-Dads’ out there?

Be open-minded.

What’s a memorable moment you’ve shared with Ellie and the kids as a family?

There have been many, like when we went on a boat trip to Taronga Zoo, a holiday in Lake Entrance, and also when we went to Queensland together.

What would be your ideal way to spend Father’s Day?

Just relaxing at home, with a good breakfast.

A few words from Ellie

Thomas is such a great Dad, he is very well grounded with parenting and is always fair. We have many great times together as a family, most recently was when we went to an AFL game to see the Swans vs. Richmond. The kids had a ball watching the game in their ponchos and getting into it with Thomas! We also just expanded our family with a German shepherd puppy, Maxie – I love watching Thomas teach the kids how to treat and train her.
