Rio Ferdinand has admitted that he is a 'strict' parent and loves to be hands-on when it comes to looking after his four children.

The 42-year-old former footballer, who welcomed baby Cree with Kate Ferdinand in December, says that he certainly does his bit when it comes to changing nappies and supporting his family.

Speaking to The Sun, Rio revealed that he was happy to support Kate with all the household tasks as well as bath time and cooking for the kids.

He also suggested that he sees himself as quite a strict parent but tries to strike a balance and make sure the children are enjoying themselves.

Rio says that he is hands-on when it comes to parenting

“I’m quite hands on, I think Kate would say the same. I don’t mind changing the nappies at all, bath times and stuff are great, also a bit of cooking when I can, I don’t mind doing that as well,” Rio told the publication.

When quizzed about his parenting tactics, Rio added: “Yeah I am quite strict. I think it’s finding the balance really. You’ve got to be strict, but you’ve got to allow the kids to have a good time and enjoy themselves, within reason.

“When it comes to things like snacks, it’s doing it at the right time and controlling the amounts when they’re young kids. My kids are good like that, we’ve got them into a good routine. When we watch football or watch a movie, that’s our snack time and we love it.”
