There’s never a bad time to honor the guys who are successfully raising beautiful children or who have done so in the past, especially when their special moments are shared.
Many Home and Away actors from the past and present are raising their own children outside of Summer Bay, perhaps with less drama than the venerable soap opera frequently sees.
We take a look at some of our favorite devoted fathers from the Home and Away universe in real life, from Cameron Daddo’s large family to Shane Withington’s adult daughter who followed in his footsteps to Jake Ryan and James Stewart’s children.
James Stewart, who plays Justin Morgan in the television series Home and Away, and his ex-fiancée Jessica Marais have a ridiculously adorable nine-year-old daughter named Scout.
She is my universe, and being a father has brought me so much joy,” the actor gushed to TV WEEK in 2018. I have never seen anything more adorable than her.
With three decades of marriage to wife Alison Brahe, Cameron Daddo is an experienced parent to the three children of the couple: son River, 21, daughters Lotus, 25, and Bodhi, 15. In 2018, he told Medium, “We’re incredibly proud of our kids.”
In October 2019, new parents Jake Ryan (the actor who portrayed Robbo) and fiancée Alice Quiddington gave birth to a boy they named Wolf William Ryan.
Since the baby’s birth, Jake has posted a ton of adorable pictures of Wolf to Instagram, winning over the hearts of everyone.
When it comes to Shane Withington’s adult daughter Maddie, whom he co-stars in A Country Practice with his spouse Anne Tenney, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Maddie had a cameo appearance on the 2015 episode of Home and Away when dad Shane played John Palmer. Acting talent must run in the family!
Fans of Home and Away will recognize Charlie Clausen most prominently as Zac MacGuire, one of Leah’s previous husbands. He currently has a firm foot in the parenting field.
He and his wife Gemma have a one-year-old daughter named Iona, and he also co-hosts the DadPod parenting podcast with Osher Gunsberg, another well-known father.
Charlie admitted to Now To Love just a few weeks after the birth of his child: “We’re definitely in the baby bubble. You’d be surprised at what you’d put up with if you looked down at that adorable little face. The volume of, say, screaming, wailing, poopy diapers, and other such things. We are utterly in love.
Todd, who portrayed Aden Jefferies from 2005 to 2005, acknowledges that becoming a father, together with wife Jordan, changed him for the better. Charlie was born in July 2016.
“The power of love and what love represents are astounding. When you have a child after believing you understand what love is, you realize that this is it. In 2018, Todd spoke to Daily Mail Australia.
“I can’t believe the level of emotion I’m starting to feel as well. As an actor, it’s like winning the lottery because you feel everything so much more deeply. Especially for your profession. It has been lovely in every way.
Jackson Gallagher, who played Josh Barrett from 2013 to 2016, concurs that becoming a father has a positive impact on a person’s life.
The 30-year-old says having a child “greatly” affected him in a recent interview with TV WEEK.
It’s a part of my life that I have a lot of love for, a tremendously adventurous and enriching portion, he said.
In October 2020, Jackson’s on-screen brother Tai Hara, who played Andy Barrett, became a father for the first time when his wife Fely Irvine gave birth to their daughter Chi.
“It’s incredible and all you could want. It’s one of those things that people tell you about, but you don’t realize how beautiful it is until you really experience it “Tai spoke to Now To Love about being a father.
It’s been a lovely ride thus far, and Fely is such a wonderful mother.
Ethan Browne, who was born in New Zealand and plays Tane Parata, is a proud father to his daughter Aaylah, who is 13 years old.
The actor recently expressed his thankfulness for being able to spend Christmas with his daughter after Aaylah appeared to live in New Zealand while Ethan worked on the Home And Away production in Australia.
In the clip, devoted dad Ethan caught the young kid off guard before giving him a warm embrace.
“Surprising my daughter after being apart for almost a year. A moment that I have long dreamt and dreamed about, Ethan captioned the picture.
