When it comes to parenthood, it’s important to find the right balance between having fun and being a role-model who your child can look up to and admire.
One celebrity who seems to be nailing fatherhood on all accounts is comedian and television host, Hamish Blake.
Here’s a round-up of some of his funniest parenthood moments.
Night terror: The hilarious way that little Rudy woke up dad Hamish Blake in the middle of the night
Zoë Foster Blake zoomed in for a chat on Tuesday night’s episode of The Project to chat about her latest project, picture book Back to Sleep, ‘that celebrates the ups and downs of family life’.
And with a husband like Hamish Blake, and two hilarious little ones, the Go-To founder sure would have a tale or two to share, like the time Rudy woke up Hamish, who is arachnophobic, in the middle of the night to tell him there was a spider in the bathroom.
“Rudy recently woke up my husband saying there was a spider in the bathroom, and he should come and see it for a shock,” the beauty guru told guest panellist Annika Smethurst.
“He is arachnophobic, so that was a wake-up call for him!” she continued.
Big brother Sonny also knows how to give them a laugh or two. Zoë shared how he once interrupted grown-up time to inform them of a hair clip he had found in his bed.
“Sonny came downstairs one night when we were watching a very violent show, which is always terrible,” she said.
“He just said he couldn’t sleep because he found a hair clip in his bed.”

Alongside this hilarious but oh-so-adorable photo montage of Hamish sharing kisses with his daughter, Rudy, the comedian and television host, shared this sweet tribute to his birthday girl.
“My Rudy Bear. We may only achieve lip to lip coordination on one ninth of our kisses, but you are a shining beam of pure delight 100% of the time,” Hamish shared on Instagram.
“You’re 3, welcome to the club kid (I kept my membership from 35 years ago).”
While the Lego Masters host has baked epic cakes for his son’s birthday for years, this is the first time he’s made one for Rudy.
To celebrate his daughter’s third birthday, Hamish took to Instagram stories to explain that he initially thought he would be creating a “unicorn cake that pooped out glittery little (chocolate) turds”, but daughter Rudy, who Hamish shares with wife, Zoe Foster Blake, had a last-minute change of heart and requested a cake resembling her favourite toy, “Sheepy”.
After six hours of baking, the radio and tv star revealed the incredible finished cake at 2am.
Someone who is pleased with the COVID-19 restrictions easing is Hamish and his two-year-old daughter, Rudy who decided to skip the polish and went straight for a quick Sharpie marker manicure.
“Daaaaaaamn it’s good to have my nail bar open again!” Hamish captioned the sweet pic.
As football codes were given the greenlight to resume play at the end of May, one fan (edit: four!) was mighty keen to get back to it.
“Great to be back out training with the fellas again but gee some of my teammates have gone haywire in the bloody iso face bush department,” Hamish captioned this image of six-year-old Sonny with various moustache filters.
“Pictured: Churnsy, R Jar, The BOOF, and Whispers. You boys are bloody mad but I love you.”
Hamish, this is absolute gold. Lol!
Hamish even manages to add humour into a sweet, gushy Mother’s Day tribute to his wife, Zoe Foster Blake.
“Our total babe hero mum. Whether quietly thinking of a million things that keep our family running (pictured), or being the most brilliant woman I know (pictured), or just being a total 15/10 smoke show (pictured) or just holding our daughter while you both think about cake (pictured), I never don’t feel like the luckiest man on earth to have a front row seat to your mumming.”
And I’m not swooning, you are.
As Sonny heads off to his first day of school, Hamish nails every parents thought about just how fast their kid is growing up.
“Power hug and suddenly he’s off to school! I know everyone says it goes fast but I am genuinely expecting his year 12 results by about next Thursday,” Hamish captions this sweet shot.
Here’s Sonny and Rudy playing with their Star Wars lightsabers.
Cute picture? Definitely.
But, of course, Hamish has the most witty caption to accompany it:
Star Wars Spoiler alert: turns out they were brother and sister.
