“New found respect to all new parents out there” Brian Dowling on the hardships of becoming a parent


Brian Dowling has opened up about adjusting to life as a new parent.

Sharing that he has a ‘new found respect’ for new parents out there, Brian says that life with a tiny tot is certainly taking its toll on him.

Brian and Arthur welcomed their little girl Blake into the world earlier this month. Since then, they have been documenting their journey with parenthood on their social media accounts.

This week Brian spoke with his followers on his Instagram story, sharing that he and Arthur are ‘tag teaming’ getting ready for the day.

“Big up — new found respect to all new parents out there with newborn babies,” he began saying.

Talking about his appearance, Brian continued:

“This is the reality now, Arthur is downstairs he was working this morning — obviously, I had Blake.”

“Now we’re tag teaming, shower is on; I’ve literally just brushed my teeth.’”

Continuing on, Brian shared his plans for the day, which are extra difficult with a newborn in tow.

“’I’ve managed to have a sandwich for lunch. I’ve to wash my hair, the hack of me from yesterday’s shoot.”


‘I’ve got to do that, so that I can take Blake so Arthur can work for the rest of the day.”

However, it’s not all bad news. As Brian describes the current state of his life as ‘organised chaos’ he says that he wouldn’t want it any other way.

“We wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s like, “Go! Go! Go!”
