Baby Goode on the way!
5FM DJ ROGER GOODE and his wife, KYLA, are looking forward to becoming parents in a few months’ time. “As soon as the baby is born, we’re going to have a photograph of five generations of women – the baby, Kyla, her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother,” Roger says.
The couple has been trying to conceive for years and after a dreadful 2020 – Kyla suffered a miscarriage and contracted Covid-19 – discovering they were pregnant was just the good news they needed.
At first Roger was fearful about having a daughter because of gender-based violence, but now he’s thrilled to be joining the girl-dad club. “She’ll be watching to see how I treat mom, how a gentleman behaves, and hopefully we can set an example so that one day when she grows up she looks for those really good qualities,” he says.
Roger is going to be a great father, Kyla says. “He’s got his own game room with Lego and toys, so he’s going to be the best dad ever.” ‘Roger is a big child – it’s going to be like having two little kids in the house’
