Simon Hooper aka Father of Daughters, the social media phenomenon of *only* 828k followers (!) is coming to Norwich.
<Update 9th May! Hats off 🎩 to Norfolk based brand Minivino* who are coming on board and giving EVERY guest a resealable single serve of their Italian vino at An Audience with Simon Hooper @father_of_daughters on 22nd May👏🏽, read more here>
Simon is father to four girls: Anya (10), Marnie (7) and two-year-old identical twins Ottilie and Delilah. He is married to Clemmie Hooper (aka @mother_of_daughters), who is, as you know, a midwife, a social media star and author of How to Grow a Baby and Push it Out.
Most of us love a bit of honest parenting to make us feel better and Simon is the insta-king of that, bringing the dad's voice to the squares. He has now written his first book "Forever Outnumbered". I started following Clemmie last year when Will was tiny, and saw her husband had an account. How novel, I thought, a husband having his own account! Now I feel a bit invested in their family life (do you think he will still come if he reads this😝?!)
Lots of people like his posts, and think his account is funny, other people google "father of daughters job" as they aren't sure how on earth one man can have a big family, a job and post about it. A recent study found nearly half of millennial dads (up to age 35) would be willing to take a pay cut to spend more time with their children. Simon's funny and honest take on life shows how he does this parenting malarky in his family.
Come and meet Simon at Open Norwich Tues 22nd May, and hear him chat modern fatherhood, equality, paternity leave, the juggle, why he starting documenting family life, how he’s creating a “side hustle” on instagram whilst having a full time job and what his new book is all about. You can buy his book from Waterstones (launches 3rd May) and he will sign it for you and pose for pics :)
