    “I’ve had my fair share of hormonal episodes this pregnancy and I must say, it’s not easy to handle me on my shittiest days. But my husband however, somehow has the patience that is unwavering, a quality that hasn’t diminished by a single bit during our 7 years together,” Jayne added.

    “And when I look at him during my meltdowns, I feel undeserving of this person who usually takes no shit from anyone else. His tenderness draws the rawest of emotions out of me when we talk — uncontrollable outpour of tears of sadness, extreme frustration, but also and most importantly, a heavy sense of gratitude.”

    “I truly am grateful to have married this man who will soon be the father of my son,” Jayne wrote during her pregnancy. “Thank you for being the most patient. I can’t wait to begin on our next chapter together.”

    Vernon’s parenting mantra has nothing to do with grades. He has said in a separate interview that “it’s OK as long as I guide him well and he’s street-smart.” (No, that’s not his kid here.)

    Vernon is one half of the Muttons in the Morning with Justin Ang. They also co-own Fatboy’s The Burger Bar and Chinese roast meat restaurant, Fook Kin.

    In the same interview, Justin very cheekily put it into perspective: “Vernon and his tattoos will beat the sh** out of anyone who bullies his son.”
