Recently, iKON‘s Bobby announced that he would be marrying his girlfriend, who is expecting their baby. He will officially become a dad next month, as he also revealed that they are due in September! While Bobby may be a first-time dad, he already has many great parenting skills.
Here are 10+ reasons why Bobby will be the best dad ever…
1. He’s already mastered the art of holding a baby
When he first met his nephew Raon, he was taught how to hold a baby properly.
While nervous at first, he quickly mastered the art!
2. He knows how to (safely) have fun
While he loves playing games with his nephew, he always does it thoughtfully.
He’s funloving yet gentle with babies!
He can also play video games with kids! He stopped to play with Harang when he visited ODG Studios to shoot a video for the channel.
3. He can sing lullabies
While he’s best known for rapping, Bobby can actually sing too! His go-to karaoke song is even a ballad.
He also sang on The King of Masked Singer and killed it! He will be amazing at singing lullabies too.
4. He is generous
He loves spoiling his nephew! Just imagine how he will be with his own kid.
Even when he first met ODG’s Harang, he immediately gifted him a plush Winnie the Pooh, Bobby’s favorite character!
5. He is kind and affectionate
He shows so much love to his nephew!
He’s extremely loving as he cares for and appreciates his nephew as much as if he was his own.
6. He knows the value of hard work and persistence
Bobby has worked extremely hard to get where he is today. He moved to the United States from South Korea when he was just a kid, then a few years later, he moved back to South Korea. There, he became a trainee and participated in survival programs before ultimately debuting with iKON.
Becoming a successful idol requires patience, resilience, an unyielding work ethic, and many more skills that Bobby can pass on to his child!
7. The man knows how to push a stroller
This is an underrated skill, honestly.
8. He has been looking forward to being a father for a while now
In an interview during his solo promotion, he revealed how much he admires his brother and his brother’s relationship with his son.
