    “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.”

    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.”
