The 52-year-old horticulturalist opened up about fatherhood on 4BC’s Afternoons with Sofie Formica on Friday.

Jamie, who has an adult daughter, Taylor, from a previous relationship, said: ‘I’m ready to have another one now. We’re certainly talking about it.’
The former House Rules star revealed he always wanted to have more children after becoming a father for the first time in his early twenties.
‘[I’ve] never been happier,’ he declared, adding that baby Beau has just started to take her first steps.
‘So much happens! I just love being around her.’

Jamie’s confession comes after he spoke to Woman’s Day earlier this week about become a father again in his fifties.
‘A lot is going on, but life is amazing,’ he told the magazine.
‘I’m a dad again! I always knew I’d have more kids. I guess it just needed to happen with the right person.’

The former Backyard Blitz host said he was in a much better position to be a parent than he was when he became a father for the first time almost 30 years ago.
He was just 23 when he welcomed Taylor with ex-girlfriend Michelle Glennock, a Las Vegas showgirl he met when they were both 18.
‘It was just absolute craziness. So at this point in my life, I think I’m probably a better dad now than the first time around,’ he said.
Love story: Jamie and Ameka got engaged in 2021 and welcomed baby Beau in July
‘Taylor is still my number one girl, but being able to be home now and spend quality time with Beau created a bond that’s like nothing I’ve felt before.’
Jamie and Ameka, who met in Los Angeles in 2019, welcomed Beau in July 2021.
They had announced their engagement just months earlier, in February 2021.
