Girls the apple of Darren's eye

DARREN Scott has had to get used to being surrounded by women.

After the birth of his second daughter one year ago today he says he has come to appreciate the more feminine things in life.

“My world is pink,” Mr Scott said.

“We've got many princess and mermaid outfits and the girls do lots of dancing.

“They definitely get their good looks from their mother... but I like to think they got their intelligence from dad.”

Mr Scott had to deliver his second daughter, Mia, at his Terranora home last year when she arrived two weeks early.

Speaking to the Tweed Daily News just days after his wife Michelle gave birth, Mr Scott joked about becoming a midwife.

But today he remains in his chosen career path, working as the principal at Centaur Primary School.

“We got the tape of the Triple 0 call,” Mr Scott said yesterday, remembering Mia's dramatic birth. “I listened to it once and was so traumatised.”

The arrival of baby Mia provided a sister for the couple's other daughter Yasmin, who is now three.

Mr Scott and his wife say the adjustment to having two kids had been a challenge, but they love being parents.

“They are the biggest challenge in the world, but I can't think of anything I'm more proud of than my two beautiful little girls,” Mrs Scott said.

She said it has been “amazing” to watch her children grow up before her very eyes.

“It just goes so quickly,” she said. “Mia is crawling now and she smiles, she's got a personality.

“And Yasmin has been great; she dotes on her sister and helps us out.”
