Speaking about how he was preparing for fatherhood Brand said: “I read a different book every week and I read one on preparation for fatherhood to mentally prepare me for it.

“I don’t know that it has prepared me for it. I’ve painted the room, I’ve done the things that you’re supposed to do, I’ve accepted the idea that that person will be more important than me.”

Brand added his lifestyle change has made him much calmer and he’s now enjoying monogamy.

"I like it as a matter of fact. I live a quiet rural life now out in the country… this animal husbandry and his new venture I think will soon put me back on top."
