I’m Chris Warrior and I am a Kokotha man from South Australia. My partner is Holly Charles who grew up in Geelong. Our son is Wilum Charles Ireland Warrior and he’s 11 months old. I didn’t grow up with my dad, so it was important for me to be a strong father figure for Wilum. I know what it’s like not to have a father and I never wanted Wilum to feel the way I did. I try and be as active as possible in looking after Wilum. I enjoy the little things like taking him for a walk, feeding him, giving him a bath and changing him. It’s important to me to teach him language, and we call him “Wadu”, which means wombat. I love being a father and being there for my son.
My tip for other dads is to be patient and love every moment with them, as they grow too quick.
