"But you know you're out in the open it's open air. You just don't want everybody in their mother just like picking up a baby and shake in it and be like kissing like the old. The old italian grandmothers used to do to us. It was gross. Then and now it could have a permanent impacts In this day and age with all the the kovic shenanigans although there's arguments as to how much kids can be affected but Yeah i'm curious to see what the fall brings. I feel like fall. I'm in connecticut. And i feel like you're gonna wanna go to your apple. Picking him and go sit at your. You know your neat little restaurant where you get your pumpkins use ravioli and all that other junk and you have your your your fall brew your craft beer so we're gonna see if we're going to do that and it'll be a little bit older and I think fall will be the the tale of the tape. If my wife and i can can wake up in the month of september october november. Yeah you get that snowsuit ready to. That's one of the beautiful things about being. I'm in jersey here as well so I think that's awesome with the changing seasons so much fun into kids to be able to do stuff especially in the fall. Pumpkin picking and all that stuff so a lot of fun stuff coming your way soon here what i know. Obviously you got the gig right now at fox and friends. What kind of goals plans do you have for yourself in a future todd twenty. You mentioned that on. Dad podcast. Because i always wanted to be a network news anchor ever since i was doing those internships in colleges wherever the dream i used to go in the city from jersey. I take the take the take transit so Talking to a transit guy. I used to dream and i say someday i'm gonna be walking these these streets and now you know it's a little too scary to walk the streets but the sentiment is the same. I get to come in here and and anchor a network newscast in the heart of manhattan And that's my dream but you know going forward. The dream is provide for your kid. I have a a few plans as to how i want to do that. With regard to this career some sort of strategic decisions that i making but at the end of the day if this went away tomorrow. Okay i got the kid. And i the number one goal at that point whether i have to go back to law or dig ditches or do whatever i got provide for that kid and i'll do whatever it takes to do so because she is my life and my wife and i both say that there's There's nothing else everything everything. Everything else is secondary. Yeah very well said let lasting. I wanna hit you with here. I love to ask all the dads again on the podcast. your eight months now. Curious to hear your. What kind of advice do you have for that. New dad often that about to be father. Who's out there listening. Read all the books beforehand because you will not pick up one of those books when it happens. People told me that So i think it's some people said don't be the books it's a waste of time. I disagree with that. I would say. Read the books. Because i really feel like it's never going to recreate what you're ultimately going to experience but i think it set you up for some of the things you're gonna see literally see you know coming out of your baby But also figuratively and i. I really felt like i was happy that i read a lot of that stuff than i forced myself to. To stay up nights and enforce that before the birth You know really really to make sure that i got a good baseline. Do i remember all of it. I'm not consciously thinking when something happens. Oh that reminds me a page. Four hundred thirty seven. Obviously and that's that's not reality. But i'd like to think he gave me somewhat of a little head start so that when you see things you're more confident in your parental instinct kicking in. But you know so. I if i said i opened up the those books. They're firmly on the bookshelf. Ready to be referenced in time of an emergency. But i mean. Let's be honest if something's happening it's just a lot easier to call the pediatrician. Yeah hey listen very well said i love. I love the message. There's been a lot of fun for me. I gotta say todd pyro you are. I last father all the way. Thank you so much to give me a few minutes time here. First-class father thank you for having me.

"But you know as well as i as i can change literally tonight and she can be a lunatic in a monster but again without the house we could. We literally could not do this. Yeah it's great to have that support system. I'm sure they seek considerate. Shouldering a blessing. You know so. It really works out now. What would you consider todd here to be the top values that you hope to instill in your daughter growing up I i want her to be mentally. Tough 'cause i feel like in this day and age. Your mental toughness is is at a premium in a way. That when you and i were growing up i never felt. I had to be mentally tough. I developed a certain level of mental toughness through sports at the silly level that i played. I mean i wasn't playing in college And through academics and just through life. But i feel that the the pressures that are on these kids from every different angle and in last year that the covert pressures really forces you to have a level of mental toughness that If you want to succeed in this world and it's sad that we've gotten there but as a dad it's my obligation to prepare for the real world and so that's my number one goal. My number two goal is to really make sure that she grows up as much like her mother as possible because I i was out with a buddy of mine. Who knows both my wife and i yesterday. And he has some really. He described my wife in a way that that really jumped out at me and he says you know your wife is one of those people that You know she can hang with the guys but no nobody's going to take advantage of her and i thought about that and like my wife. I think my wife is gorgeous. Obviously the most gorgeous woman. I've ever met you know. And i like all the feminine attributes of her but in a come to think of it even when i was in the dating mode and you know how guys can be i. I never heard guys talking about her. In a crass way and i feel is that's because she exuded a certain level of self respect. And i want i want to somehow make sure that that. That's that the little baby. When she grows up to be a woman. Has that and i feel confident that my wife sort of charter the path for that. Because you know if you're strong woman in today's society it really does help you and My wife's a strong woman. And i'm looking forward to that That might be just an observation on my part. I don't know if i'm going to be able to be the coach on that. My wife might need to take the lead on that. But i'll certainly be encouraging along the way and if there was a third i think we all wanna have our kids not make the mistakes that we made I don't want her. My parents didn't put pressure on the. I put a lot of pressure on myself to to. I don't wanna say impress my parents but to be a good doobie and they tried to sort of say you know. Just be happy. Just live your life. And i didn't listen so i'm gonna try my best to convince them that kicked him in the little one to really focus on being happy You know if she's anything like her father she'll try to impress us anyway and i certainly hope that that doesn't come at the expense of her own happiness because i felt like subjugated a lot of my own happiness along the way Just to sort of please others even though they were not asking to be please So those are my three. Yeah very well said todd and then what about now. I know your daughter is only eight months now. So it's really for this but What was the what was your relationship like with your parents growing up. What was the discipline style. Like with your parents and is that kind of discipline style. You plan on implementing a timeout guy. Spanker what was the discipline style like when you grew up. I'm forty three years old so You know the whole time now thing was was was not happening back. Then i'm from jersey You know there's a lot of hitting jersey but you know my dad didn't like to hitting I think my dad used to cry. Then he used to have to hit us like tone sex. Ain't my dad's a worst but You know my my dad can can lose his temper just like any any good italian male but my dad did not like it in the belt. My mom was a wooden spoon person because her mom before it was a wooden spoon. And i feel like the wooden spoon is a important part of italian culture but i was pretty good k. My brother's a pretty good kid. The only time that we get in trouble because when we were like bothering each other Really that's the only time. The wooden spoon came out of the threats of of spanking came out. We're pretty good kids the one other time. I did a girl when i was three. And so my mom bitney back. You know that was a physical nece here. You know so what we're gonna do. I'd like to say we had this huge discussion about this So far so good. You know the kids not kids. Not needing reprimanding I think we're gonna you know we need to talk about that. Flush that a little bit more. i just i. if there's any hitting involved. I think it's going to have to be the wise i i i can't. I can't look at the little one that i'm going to smack her on her bottom You know anytime she. She's sitting up and she likes falls over if i go into like a defcon five. Unlike so i. I don't know if i could even in reprimanding raise a hand to her but but we'll figure that out but you know i. It certainly is a question But again i. I was a pretty good kid. I didn't i didn't necessitate a lot of reprimanding and again that goes back to my earlier. Point of of trying to be a good kid trying to to to not require punishment. Always try to keep my parents happy. And i think that's a testament to my parents that You know encouraged us to be to be good and they you know they rewarded us with You know i. It wasn't like now the trophy generation. Where everybody you you smile and you get a trophy but I just think they rewarded us with with positive reinforcement and I i had a pretty darn good childhood. You know i. my parents still alive. Don't see him this weekend. We fight more now than we did. Back then because as they get older sunny and And acting goofy yourself Almost my job to like keep track of them and make sure they're on the straight narrow not doing stupid things but Yeah i i had an awesome childhood. I i was pretty lucky. You hear horror stories out there. Yeah very cool tied now. Obviously they i remember having my first and like sometimes you in the beginning. You're you're very cautious about going out places in public with the baby because it's your first time you're very new to all of it now. During a pandemic. I would imagine that's kind of like twofold or even maximize have you guys been able to Breakthrough have you been able to take. Take her out and go places with her. Enjoy some experiences. Have you guys kind of limited. Her and kinda helped your home for most of the time i wanna say it's less about her less about the pandemic and more about like we don't have time. Art day are night together. Is saturday night. When we're all under one roof. And i gotta be honest. My wife and i look at each other like you want to go out to dinner. Let's bring it in so it's not. it's not really pandemic related. It's not her related You know with the shores really are going down the shore on weekends. Which is what we tried to do in the summer of the jersey. Shore have done it so much. Because you sound like. You're a northeaster Weather here is Is been horrific for the month of july pope in august. Improves hopefully going out a few more times and they were going to expose to a little bit more that way..

"Joining me now. I glass father todd. Pyro welcome to first-class fatherhood. Thanks for having me. I love the dad. And i'm sure i'm gonna love being a first-class father. Allegedly is what. I'm being called. Although i i don't know if i'm first question i'm kind of i'm trying. Yeah i'm new at well and this show your first. Last father's let's start started right here. How many kids do you have. How old one. Eight months. And i love every second of it yeah. That's that's awesome sight now. Did you guys did you guys have. Did you do any kind of gender reveal to find out what you have you all the way to the end to find out now. We did it. He didn't do one of the ones that you see on social media. We just got a cake in front of close group of family My family was on the phone. Her family was in the room. We opened it up so that it was a girl. And i've been madly in love ever since very cool. Yeah that took me four tries. We had three boys before we ended up getting a girl. So you got the girl right right off the hillbilly there you guys all run it right back to you want and done here. No i you know. I'm hoping we run right back but isn't a girl awesome. Like i am a boy. I have experienced with boys. I understand how boys operate. But there's something special about girls. Yeah i'm loving it. Yeah she's just about to turn seven here so She's my baby in the house. Here dot if you could please take a minute here to hit my listeners with a little bit about your background what you do Grew up in jersey. You know that differentiates me from literally. Nobody who works here at fox. Half the people are from jersey. Half the people are from long island. But so i'm i'm in good company Because i grew up across the river which college new hampshire Always had done internships and tv and radio. But so i had to go to law school. So i went to law school Ucla california los angeles out there for about twelve years total. I practice before after the three years. A law school then my first tv job. I got when i was thirty years old. In palm springs california. I loved bounce breaks Punishments was freaking awesome Loved it but at the end of the day. I miss my family back on the east coast so moved back and i got a job at nbc connecticut Met my wife there. Although i didn't know what the time she didn't know it at the time that would have been weird better on day one. I called her my wife. I don't think she would be my wife We met we've been together ever since and then in two thousand seventeen got this gig and then Then at fox you said. Since i june may june of twenty seventeen and Yeah the. The baby came in november of last year. And it's crazy. That was a wild time in my life because obviously the election twenty twenty election was just insane in. I basically just been named a morning anchor. A fox and friends first that show that that's on for four to six. Am eastern every day that every weekday would just. What i anchor with a lovely gillian. Mealy so we have that. We decided to buy a house because we knew we were having a baby. You want also be closer to my in-laws So buying houses is a horrible experience in and of itself buying in the course of a pandemic another horrible experience. While you're trying to you're basically about to pop and by you. I mean your wife and then just to top that off. I literally got cova I didn't have any symptoms. I was so good but you can't do anything when you have. Koga your wife's about to give birth so just an absolutely wild time. I don't know if anything thinking crazier than that's on in my life but you know i'm sure as a father you'll tell me it will get crazier a loughry's i'll tell you it'll get better a lot better. That's that's what i would say but Yeah what a what a crazy introduction into fatherhood now obviously you know during a pandemic it had to be different your experience with this. Were you able to be in the room where you able to go all the appointments. Obviously when you had covert not but we able to be a part of it for the most part They really try to limit it I didn't have a lot of interaction with doctors. Only certain doctors appointments. And then unfortunately when you get coded a week before the kids born. They don't allow you in the hospital. So i did miss the birth and that's something that You know trying to make up for lost time on but Yeah that was the toughest part of. Kobe was the mental. Because i missed the birth. And that'll be with the rest of my life so When i decided to do as i have a tradition now that i started With the baby that we have the first day that i was able to hold her Which was significantly after the birth. And so that's going to be our day. I have a little thing that i do with her. And i'm going to continue doing this until she tells me. Dad stop it. I'm too old for this now. Which i'm hoping is never and i'm hoping we can do this up until via the first dance at a wedding many many years from now. Yeah well really great stuff taught. And i know you got six weeks. Maternity leave their from fox. What was that like for you. What was that. Experience like to get the six weeks and had to becoming a dad kind of change your perspective on life. I'll it was great. I really took advantage of it to kind of learned how to do this part of being a father. I'd be naive. I said oh. I took six weeks and i learned how to be debt. You know as well as i you learn stuff every day and i. I think my dad is still learning Even though i'm forty three years old how to be a dad this is the users. Learn along the way but it was awesome. I mean that time is invaluable. And all my bosses. Here were so supportive. They they basically they made me take it. But when i was on the fence like should i take the whole i guess take. You'll never get this opportunity again to bond with this child. And it was an unbelievable bonding experience. It was it was beautiful And you know. I mean mistakes You know man. I i have trouble trouble listening. I don't listen very well. So i'm sure my wife told me a bunch of things to do and i ignored half of them. But you know the kid made it out. We bonded and You know. I think that bonding really has carried through to now because Yeah i know. Fathers and daughters have a special bond. But but we definitely have a special bond. And i'm pretty sure last night. In fact i was able to force her to say data which means i win which means i got that. Is there before mom. But don't tell my wife. I don't wanna get in trouble with her very cool. Yeah now how about a store. Is your schedule works now. You knew to four to six in the morning. How has that kind of blended in with having the The newborn in the house. And all that. Have you been able to work out a good schedule or do you stay up earlier. How does that kind of work out with shift that you got two words or one word with a hyphen in-laws They've been amazing They have just shouldered the load because my wife also works nights. She's a news anchor there in connecticut but her shift is is the night shift. She has the the the evening shift during the night. Casts the newscasts. They are night. So i do the morning she does. He can't leave the kid by herself. Typhus department of children and families. Frowns upon that so my in laws have just been amazing. I hang out with her. And then when i go to bed i dropped her off at the end of my in-laws work workday. They take her at any. They're hoping out. But let's face it grandparents love to see the little ones and She's a pretty good one so dropping her off there. She smiles until basically she goes to bed. Kids give a little push back at bedtime but once you get past that it's fun for them and we're we're in a good stretch now where she's really sleeping through the night. I would say five to six days a week. She sleeping through the night entirely so It's it's it's a lot of smiles and giggles right now and so you not asking my laws to shoulder too much of a burden right now..

"Most of what dads do is take. It's what we do that line from the movie. Daddy's home. You know, the one that's always on basic cable at three PM on a Saturday won't go down in history alongside I'm going to make him an offer. He can't refuse, but no quote, sums up fatherhood so brilliantly. And his dad's wouldn't have it any other way. Oh, sure. We still love to complain about the job, one in which both sleeping and eating or events that need to be calendar where your bank account. It's drained instead of direct deposited where your tiny boss throws major temper tantrums out of the blue, and this doesn't include any of the gross stuff. But the benefits at this job now that's where the good stuff is laughs that validate your reason for being finger grabs that touch your soul smiles that melts your heart. Of course, this father's Day is extra special to me, because it's my first and man, Am I ever playing the part of dead and the typical dad ways? If you are a light, I'm turning you off. If you are Eircom dish inning, I am turning you up. They have to agree. When no one's looking. I celebrate a forecast of rain like I won the Super Bowl because it means I don't have to water. Dad jokes. I mean, come on. Have you seen Fox and friends first? And let's just say the £20 I've packed on since birth have put me squarely in Dad Bod territory for the upcoming beach season. But while you always hear just wait to see how your life will change once you have a kid, I love the changes, even though it means an already difficult schedule has grown near impossible. For instance, I never envisioned my life could get any more taxing than a daily middle of the night. Wake up call Ha! Now mix that in with a 6:30 p.m. bedtime, thanks to baby tasks, and there's a good chance that I lose consciousness by Friday each week, But when I just don't think I could push it out anymore. I get fueled by baby giggles and realize there's nothing else I'd rather be doing. Let's face. It already had my dream job before Baby. I get to deliver the news interview guests on the most important topics of the day and make people laugh every now and again. But now on my first father's day, I know what it's like to have the greatest job in the world. It's awesome to finally be part of the club and, no, I don't need the ubiquitous tie as a gift. Being a dad is the best gift ever. I am Todd Piro, anchor of Fox and Friends. First you've been listening.
