Broadcaster Jon Snow says he “didn’t find age relevant” to late fatherhood.
Former Channel 4 news anchor Jon Snow says he has found age “not relevant” to his relationship with his children after fathering his third child in his 70s.
The veteran journalist and broadcaster, 75, says having his youngest child Tafara “wasn’t easy” but that life “felt whole” after the birth.
Snow welcomed Tafara in 2021 with his wife Dr. Precious Lunga.
Speaking to Saga Magazine, he opened up about his relationship with his parents, children and grandchildren.
“There are three very small people in my life — two grandchildren, ages one and three, and a son, Tafara, who is two against five,” he said.
“He has his mother’s brains and my outgoing nature. I think it’s great how you can already have great conversations with him.
“It wasn’t easy getting him, but we kept going because my wife is much younger than me at 48 and she really wanted and deserved a baby. When he was born life felt complete.”
I have found that age is not relevant to my relationship with my son or grandchildren. Is grandpa different from being a father? Not really. It’s all love in the end, isn’t it?
Snow added that he’s “completely comfortable” with late fatherhood and isn’t worried about dropping his son or being exhausted.
“I have found that age is not relevant to my relationship with my son or grandchildren,” he said.
“Is being a grandpa different from being a father? Not really. It’s all love in the end, isn’t it?”
