Nicky said he feels like he has a “second chance” at fatherhood.

He explained: “I’ve got a second chance at this.

“I have fantastic memories of being a new dad first time around. So in some respects it’s not much different.”

He added: “But I like to think I have more patience now. The truth of it is I’m probably around a lot more.”

“We’re a good balance.”
