Stav Davidson & Matty Acton
HIT 105 BREKKY PRESENTERS
Stav Davidson and Matty Acton are those voices in your car on your school drop off. One-half of Hit105’s breakfast team, Stav and Matty are also the voices of authority in their respective homes. Stav has a daughter Rori (4) and Matty’s clan includes Ethan (15), Zander (3) and baby Eden (5 months).
Stav, take us back to the moment you first became a dad. What do you remember? Fear! And an overwhelming feeling to protect her for the rest of her life. And the fact that I now have to work for the rest of my life to support her! And you Matty? I stepped into fatherhood a little different to most. I met my now-wife when I was 18 and she had a little 3-year-old. We were both young trying to navigate our relationship and a child but it actually made us stronger and is why I think we made it. I’ll never forget to be in the birthing suite for my other two kids, being the first person in the world to see their faces is a pretty amazing thing.
Stav, if you could pick one superpower to help you with your daily ‘dad’-ly duties, what would it be and why? The ability to clone myself! To be two or three places at once as a parent would be amazing!
When you’re at home, what is your favourite time of the day, Matty? I love on the weekend when I get to be home for the wake-up cuddles when the kids climb into bed first thing (hopefully not too early though). And Stav? Bath time. It’s always daddy- daughter time in our house and she loves playing in the bath, making crazy hair styles with the shampoo…
Do you have any family traditions, Matty? We’re pretty old-school. We always have a Sunday roast and I make the kids watch footy with me… I think they enjoy it!
What is one thing your child does that drives you absolutely crazy, Stav?: Why? why?why?why?why?why?why?why?why??? And Matty? Mine are world champions on cup spilling! I don’t know how, but every drink they have manages to end up on the floor.
Describe a day in your home using a song title? Stav: “Nothing else matters” by Metallica. Matty: “Wrecking ball” by Miley Cyrus.
