Dads around the country will be showered with socks and jocks on Sunday to celebrate Father’s Day.

Lancefield dad Aaron Randall said he was looking forward to spending time with his two-year-old twin daughters Kenzie and Maddison.

“I’ll be working on Father’s Day but once I get home, I’m sure I’ll have a surprise waiting for me, whether it’s some sort of gift or card from the girls,” he said.

Kenzie and Maddison were born two minutes apart and three months prematurely.

“One was 660 grams and one was 780 grams,” Mr Randall said.

“But you wouldn’t know it now – they’re little battlers and flying along.”

Mr Randall said raising his two beautiful girls had been very rewarding.

“It’s changed my life,” he said.

“It’s unbelievable just to watch them grow. I’ve been lucky enough to be a stay-at-home-dad for a year and a half now and I just love it.

“It’s just joyful and rewarding. There are times when you get pushed to the point where you need a breather, but it’s [parenting] just fantastic. You just can’t beat it.”
