Last day of the summer holidays and we’re out picking blackberries for our pudding (berries and ice cream😂).

A post shared by TomFletcher (@tomfletcher) on

The name of their first baby boy is Buzz Michelangelo Fletcher who is five years old, their second baby boy is Buddy Bob Fletcher who is four years old, and lastly, their third baby boy is Max Mario Fletcher who is just one year old.

Their first-born, Buzz recently celebrated his fifth birthday and Tom said

“He changed my life completely and though it’s so hard to watch them get bigger and grow up, he is turning into such a brilliant, clever little person who surprises me every single day.”

Meanwhile, Giovanna said:

“You have taught me so much about myself and have completely changed our lives. You’re funny, loving, devoted, bonkers, clever and completely over the top.”

What REALLY IS The Big Deal About Tom’s And Giovanna’s Parenting Skills?

Well, they keep it simple, straightforward, real and brutally honest. 

Contrary to the norm, their Instagram posts cover the good, the bad, the neat, the dirty and everything that comes with parenthood! As a result, they are being celebrated and appreciated by their fans and followers.

Giovanna is pretty open about the difficulties she faces as a mother. Some of the issues are the difficulty of breastfeeding, insecure moments, fearful doubts, overwhelming encounters with her babies, her ‘wobbling’ postpartum body, milk dripping from her swelling boobs and being emotionally drained. 

One of their parenting methods are parents have to maintain the balance of being silly and responsible. 

According to Tom:

“You can be the one who is silly and fun but you also have to be responsible sometimes and tell them, ‘no, you can’t climb out of the window’. 

“There will be phases when you’ll be the one the kids come to when they want to play; other times you’ll be the one they come to when they fall over and hurt themselves.”

Tom also advises young fathers to listen to their kids. 

“Every child is different, and ‘professional’ advice seems to change all the time. Your kid lets you know everything you need to do – you just need to listen to them.”

And most importantly, he stressed that fatherhood is far from what you have in mind. Despite being prepared, it is hard for him and the best way to go about it is ‘just wing it’!

How Has Fatherhood Changed Tom Fletcher?

Evidently, he has changed after the birth of his three boys. His Instagram feed has changed and essentially, the crux of his life has changed too. 

He has admitted that besides the need to give up on sleep, parenthood has made his dreams more prominent and he is focused on making the most of the things he enjoys now. 

However, what came as a revelation is the fact that parenthood has greatly helped him to come off his bipolar medication. 

“It made me realise I had to get on top of everything. If you are not able to look after yourself, you are not able to look after your kids.”

Considering that both of them are working on creative pursuits, it is imperative for them to work in a certain way and in specific times. 

How do they manage to parent, write and be active on social media? 

By taking turns, relying on their parents and giving way to each other’s dreams.

In an appreciation post in Facebook, Giovanna shared about that specific moment when she was writing. Buzz was at school, Buddy was with his Nana and Ewad, Max was swimming with Tom, while Nono and Nonna were watching Chernobyl while waiting to pick Tom and Max. 

Obviously, it is a juggle and it takes a village to raise kids.

We have a kid-free weekend for the first time in…well, for the first time! 😱

In Giovanna’s own words

“I think that we are best friends is the key to it. We are a team and we’ve known each other since we were 13 when we dated for two days and he dumped me for his ex-girlfriend.”

Claiming that she was not bitter, she said: 

“Then we dated again when we were 15 for a year.  I think our on-off nature has actually been good for us. It means that when we’re older we won’t be like, ‘Oh God you’re the only person that I’ve ever gone out with!’ 

“We’ve kissed other people and been on other dates and we’ve found that actually that no-one else compares.”

How’s that for some serious #couplegoals ?
