Woody Whiteclaw’s on I’m a Celebrity
In 2023, Woody Whitelaw starred in the reality series I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! During the second episode of his season, he opened up about the struggles of being a new dad and why therapy is important.
“I hadn’t done any therapy or anything before my partner fell pregnant,” said Whitelaw. “And I’m glad this did drive me to therapy.”
“I went through this really shocking period where, as soon as Mim fell pregnant, I had this belief I wasn’t going to be a good dad and I wasn’t ready.”
However, Whitelaw didn’t keep these feelings bottled in. He instead sorted through them with his therapist.
Whitelaw also said, “The main thing we were working through was, like, ‘Why don’t you think you’re going to be a good dad?’ At the end of the day it was just the unknown. Because I didn’t know what it was going to be like.”
“Thankfully, I love being a dad.”
