I HAVE A SON

Yup, on 19 Feb 2008, Daniel John Nel was born at 7:40am. Apart from his initial cry of freedom, he has proven a chilled little man, fabulously good looking, and really just perfect.

It was a great night out and I'm very pleased. Go check on myspace.com/danienelmusic to learn more, and music.danienel.co.za to listen to some of my music.
