TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) — A father of two just became a father of three earlier this month. Kelvin Galloway, Jr. now has some insight on what to expect when you're expecting during a pandemic.

Kelvin Galloway the 3rd was born on June 1st to proud parents Meisha Daniels and Galloway Jr. The experience for the new dad this time around is a lot different due to family not being able to be around when his son was born.

"The family wasn't able to come up to the hospital," explained Galloway Jr. I had to take two weeks off of work, but I didn't mind at all. I would sit with her for a lifetime to make sure she's okay, when it comes to my little fellow entering this world."

Galloway Junior says with all of the technology we have now, it made it a little easier to adjust to the situation.

He does have some advice for soon-to-be dads. "Just make sure that your heart is completely open to your children. There's nobody else like your kids. We have to do all that we can to do for them, because we have to teach them what's going on in this day and time and we have to get them prepared for the future."
