As we approach the well-deserved day dedicated to fathers worldwide, we wanted to hear a bit from the Daytime Queen's King, Greg Ofori

We know what kind of husband Greg Ofori is, but what sort of father is he? We took some time to ask him a few questions about fatherhood. 

What does being a good father mean to you?

"Being a good father for me means being available for your children. I don't mean that in the sense that you are always at their beck and call; I mean it in the sense that they have access to you. They know that you will be there for them if they need you for anything."

Do you have unique ways of bonding with the kids?

"I have daily check-ins with my kids, I make it a point to ask them about their day. I want them to know that I am interested in whatever is going on in their world. I bond with my kids during new experiences, but I think I bond best with my kids during teachable moments."

How are you breaking the stereotype about fathers who aren't involved in their kids' lives?

"I think the idea of what it means to be a father is constantly changing. As fathers, we are starting to understand the impacts we have on our children's lives in so many ways. We are learning how to show a range of emotions in the household. We know that we can discipline and we can also nurture depending on what the situation calls for." 

It was so lovely getting to know the type of father Greg is with his kids. He is a true testament to the modern-day father who has a strong foundation in what it means to be present and engaged. 

To all our fathers out there, we wish you a Happy Father's Day! May you always remember how special you are to us...
