He added: "A lot of dads feel put out in that sense. I didn't really feel put out, but I was like, 'Where's my place?' I was desperate to find out what I was meant to do – changing nappies and whatever else. For me as a dad, you're just taking care of everything as much as you can, making sure he's got a smile on his face. And if you cook for her, she feeds him, so you're cooking for everyone – that's what my thing was." He later clarified his comments on Twitter, adding: "Never once did I use the word jealous... a relationship between a mother and a newborn is the most beautiful thing. I just said I struggled with my place in this and what I could do to become a part of that with not having the same natural maternal instincts as a mum does."
