On this Father's Day, he is the newest father of them all.

"Pretty good start to the whole parenting thing," Jason Bichsel said.

At the time of the interview at OhioHealth's Riverside Hospital, Sunday, Bichsel had been on the job for 10 hours.

His baby boy, Bodhi, arrived at 12:41 a.m. He weighed nine pounds and 2.7 ounces and was 21 inches long. Every inch of him makes Bichsel wonder "How do I do this?"

"I don't think you do," he said. "The first time I looked at him, it's just...this is going to change everything and we're just going to have to figure that out as we go along."

Proud Dad! Bichsel holding his newborn son, Bodhi.

A "Father" is quite the title.

A "Father" on Father's Day is quite the bragging rights.

"I don't think my wife was really all that excited about it," he joked. "But, I was."

Bichsel's wife, Josie, was doing great and resting at the time of the 10TV interview.

Bichsel's new title is much like baby Bodhi: in its infancy.

"Honestly, I've been looking at him just trying to take in everything about him and learn about all of his little features," he said. "I'm just hoping I can do a good job."

Congratulations, Jason! We know you will do great! And, happy Father's Day!
