Shortland Street actor Jayden Daniels is about to become a dad for the first time.
The 23-year-old, who plays Curtis, met his partner Gigi Barclay three years ago when he first sat in her makeup chair.
Barclay, 31, is due to give birth to a baby boy on November 20, just two days before Jayden’s 24th birthday.
Daniels said: “We’d actually both wanted kids for ages, we used to talk about it all the time, even when we hadn’t got together. And whenever I hung out with kids or babies, I’d be like, ‘Oh, I want one too.'”
“I love the thought of watching him grow and learn. I just want to be there for all of it and kind of be his hero…It’s going to be so incredible to see what he looks like. It almost feels like a dream.”
This is so cute!
