Podcast: Tom Cox on Being A Gay, Adoptive Dad

This podcast episode is sponsored by F&F at Tesco

Welcome back to a new season of Not Another Mummy Podcast and I’ve got a brilliant episode to kick things off. Along with his husband Daniel, my guest, Tom Cox, adopted his son Kai. Tom chats to me about everything from that moment he knew he wanted to be a dad, what made them choose adoption over surrogacy and how he felt when he first saw their son Kai’s adoption profile and knew he was the one. He talks about the long process and how emotionally tough it was, being approved by different panels and hoping and praying that everything would go smoothly.

It’s clear, listening to Tom speak, how much him and Daniel love Kai and what brilliant dads they are. It was such a pleasure – and honour – to have Tom on as a guest, sharing his journey to fatherhood.

This episode is also rather special because it was recorded live, in front of an audience, at an event held by F&F at Tesco, to launch Fred & Flo, their brand new baby clothing range. As the mum of ten month old baby twins, I know how important it is to be able to pick up good value clothing for them without spending lots, so I regularly pick up outfits for them while I’m doing my grocery shop. Big thank you to F&F at Tesco for asking me to host this episode at their event – and there are some great questions at the end of the episode, from audience members!

Fred & Flo clothing is available in Tesco stores now! Find your nearest store here.
