Cheesy jokes, words of wisdom, bear hugs… there’s so many reasons why we love Dads so much, and this week we’re celebrating Father’s Day by catching up with a few of our favourite Dads! Meet Campbell Brown; you might recognise him from the footy field, or Channel 7’s, The Real Full Monty. This Sunday is Campbell’s first Father’s Day with his beautiful son Boston William Brown.

First, let’s talk Dad fashion! What’s your go-to outfit for when you’re out and about with your family? Do you have a hot tip – a Browndog style hack – that you can gift us with?
I am renowned for being a bit of a fashion victim hahaha. Quite often I’ll come out wearing something and my wife will say, “You can’t wear that!”, and I will have to go back and change. I like comfort over style so you can usually find me in just a pair of pants, loafers, and a T-shirt.
What’s your most-loved item in your wardrobe and why?
I absolutely love a knit jean, they are so much more comfortable than normal jeans and u can wear them causally or when going out.
We know you like a laugh… what’s one of the more humorous moments of fatherhood you’ve experienced so far?
I had never really changed any nappies before my son! I don’t have a strong stomach, so early days I used to gag while attempting to change his nappy… Much to the delight of everyone around!
Father’s Day is just around the corner, do you have any secret pressie hopes? What will be happening in the Brown household this Sunday.
It will be my first Father’s Day with Boston. We will be out near the Yarra Valley, so we will probably go for lunch at a winery somewhere.
There are surely many, but what’s an important life lesson you’ve learnt that really resonates with you that you hope to pass on?
The harder you work the luckier you get – I think this is so true. Whether it be sporting pursuits, study, or business; it’s applicable to all aspects of life.
Lastly, being an Aussie Father, you have a reputation to live up to… can you leave us with your best Dad joke?
If you see a robbery at Apple, does it make you an Iwitness?
