Then, JB added: "Yeah I did, not at the prospect of having children, it was just very sudden and I don’t think I was expecting it to be as quick as that, do you know what I mean? And for me I take things like that very very seriously."
JB is determined to be a true father figure for his children.
The JLS star is particularly determined to be a good role model for his son.
He told Giovanna Fletcher’s 'Happy Mum Happy Baby' podcast: "For me, as a father, especially in the black community, you know the role of the father, not always, I think it is changing.
"But historically, it is under-represented and I already see it in Ace anyway but just to encourage him to be the father figure that he ... that I believe he was born and created to be and just to take that responsibility with both hands."
JB previously admitted that Ace immediately built a rapport with his little sister.
He said: "He's been amazing, he's so proud to tell everyone, 'This is my sister,' and he wants to involve Chiara in everything, like story time and bath time.
"He's a typical boisterous boy, but he instinctively knew he had to be gentle with her and he talks to her really softly."
