Comedian and cool dad of three, Jerry Seinfeld is stepping up for fatherhood. Recently, he hosted Baby Buggy’s the inaugural Los Angeles Fatherhood Initiative Lunch in California. The Baby Buggy Fatherhood Leadership Council includes Jason Alexander, Jason Bateman, Kevin Hart, Jay Leno, Michael Richards and Bob Saget.
Baby Buggy is a non-profit started by Jerry’s wife, Jessica. Jerry believes that fathers lack a support system, so this initiative fills part of the void and allows these celebrity dads to support one another in their daddy journey.
“Women do that naturally. Men — it just doesn’t even cross their mind. They just quietly suffer, and that’s why a lot these marriages go south. People suffer and suffer and suffer and they go, ‘I can’t take it anymore, I’m outta here.’” – Jerry Seinfeld
“I wasn’t surprised that I loved fatherhood as much as I did,” Seinfeld recalls. “But I was surprised what I needed to learn that I didn’t know, which is one of the reasons I wanted to do this. Being a husband and a father — you don’t get any training, and people need training.” – Jerry Seinfeld
