Lance said: “She loves when I read to her and doesn’t care one bit that I stutter.

“I uploaded the videos in the hope that others with stammers find some comfort in knowing they aren’t alone in their struggles.

“And to show future fathers with stutters that we can still do a great job, it’s just a little more difficult for us.

“There have been some really harsh and horrible comments on the videos but I just delete and ignore them.

“I don’t care about that; this is about helping and encouraging other people who, like me, suffer with this every day.”
