But that’s not all fans were curious about, many also wondered about his parenting techniques. Mainly how the dad of two handles screen time.

Donal was quick to point out how parents should go with what works for them. Saying; “Firstly as any parent knows- you do you girl! Whatever it takes to get through the day!”
