Kathie Lee & Hoda: Being a Dad + Josh Turner
Kathie Lee and Hoda shared that 75% of Fathers say that being a dad is their most important job. 54% of dads with infants say they change diapers, and only 37% say their fathers changed diapers.
Speaking on fathers, Kathie Lee and Hoda welcomed country music singer and new author Josh Turner to talk about being a dad and his new book, Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family, and Fatherhood. He’s father to three sons with a fourth one on the way and has had four number one hits including “Why Don’t We Just Dance“.
Josh shared that his wife is due in September, and admitted that he was not surprised when he found she was having another boy. He shared that people kept telling them to keep practicing so that’s what they did. He said she’s outnumbered in the house so he bought her an old English bulldog this past Christmas.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Josh Turner Man Stuff
He shared that his wife, Jennifer, is in his band and plays piano and sing background vocals. They actually tour as a family, even with their three kids who are 7, 4, and 3-years-old. He said they just started homeschooling which is great because it saves on gas and he “gets to kiss their teacher”.
Kathie Lee and Hoda also pointed out that he’s in the category of Hot at Every Age at the age of 36 but he said it wasn’t much of an accomplishment because “they included everyone”. He was just being humble!
As for the book, he said he felt like it allowed him to say the things he hasn’t been able to say yet. He said it was intimidated at first, then became therapeutic. He said it was great to be able to share stories and honor the people he’s learned from throughout his life.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: “Time is Love” Performance
Josh Turner pulled out his guitar and sang “Time is Love” for Kathie Lee and Hoda. If you ask me, I’d say he has the best voice in all of country music.
After he finished the song, Kathie Lee and Hoda gave him a present for his new baby boy.
