The heartwarming video was accompanied by an equally wholesome caption, Brent writing the following: “Excited to share the next project we’ve been working on with you.”
“Baby Draper 2.0 coming soon!”
Fast forward to November 19, 2023, baby Bowie was delivered in an "incredible" homebirth with two endorsed midwives on hand to make sure everyone was happy and healthy.
"He's amazing. We're so happy," Brent shared with our sister publication Woman's Day shortly after Bowie was born.
"He's the calmest, happiest baby. He's very content and very calm," wife Shonleigh added.
Whilst the entire family were over the moon about finally meeting Bowie, none were quite as ecstatic as older brother Alfie.
"He's just in a love bubble," Shonleigh also shared with the publication of their five year old.
"We originally thought he's going to think here's this kid coming into our life and taking all the attention away from me, but he's been the opposite. He's obsessed with him - he kisses him on the head, he's getting bottles."
"He just keeps telling us, 'Mum, I can't believe I'm a big brother."
Brent previously competed in season 13 of the hit reality cooking competition, before returning to win the 2023 season, but withdrew to focus on his mental health.
“Going home, I just needed to find ground level, I’m so much stronger mentally, physically. I’m back for myself, I’m back for all the people who reached out to me on social media and told me their stories,” Brent told the judges and Australia as he reentered the MasterChef kitchen for round two.
“My outlook on life now is totally different, I’m a different person. I’m just so passionate about men’s mental health. Why are we as males not breaking the stigma around it? You are allowed to be vulnerable, it’s not about the stumble or where you were, it’s about the comeback and the person you are after that.”
Whilst Brent says there is plenty to celebrate across the last 12 months, he dearly misses his friend and mentor Jock Zonfrillo, who passed away in April last year.
"It's tough, I always catch myself thinking of him. He's a big part of my life and a major part of why I changed careers - he's a big part of my journey," Brent reflected.
"But he'd be proud. I do a lot of things for my mental health, and the first person there for donations and support was always Jock. So he'd be very proud of the way I just keep pushing that and becoming a dad again."
