Bill Bellamy and the family stopped by the 12th Annual Stuart House Benefit in Los Angeles on Sunday. All members of the family offered much support to John Varvatos and his efforts.
The designer launched the charity in 2002, after seeing the lack of male support given to women and children at the Stuart House rape treatment center. The designer now encourages men to protect children from such trauma, and support those who have fallen prey to rape.
Bill certainly knows about protecting kids as he is the father of a son, Baron, and daughter named Bailey. He advises new fathers to be mindful of their actions as children have a way of mimicking parents. “Whatever you do, good and bad, they are sponges and they will impersonate you,” says the actor. “They will say what you say, how you said it, in another embarrassing time.”
Bellamy also tells media that fatherhood is the best thing that has ever happened to him. “It gave me a sense of responsibility, love and accomplishment. It’s been an amazing journey learning these two little new human children.”
