‘Part of the joy of fatherhood is sharing the movies I loved as a child with my daughter and even the ones I loved as an adult, to be honest,’ he said.  

Rove, who recently returned to Network Ten, said that he has so far exposed her to classic films including The Wizard Of Oz, as well as Disney’s Finding Nemo and Aladdin.

He also added: ‘I can’t wait until she’s old enough to get stuck into the Harry Potter Series. I reckon she’ll love them.’

‘But I’m not sure it registers with her what it all actually means yet. I’m fine with that,’ Rove added.
