An Australian man’s offer to provide ‘daddy’ rental services to mothers whose partners don’t help manage children sparked a laugh riot online. A photo of the advertisement advertising his services created a buzz on social media and many said “they’re up for it”.

Jake James from New South Wales said he is ready to offer the services in a bid to try out a “new career move to get away from trucks”. In the advertisement, the man wrote: “Has your baby daddy been acting up? Tired of him playing games? Does he put drugs and his mates before his kids? Get yourself a rent a daddy!”

In the tongue-in-cheek social media post, the man offered an array of services at a “standard rate” of $30 per hour and “20% surcharge” for Sunday after 4pm. And extra if someone needs him to be a Sunday dinner date.

In the ad he promised to be at school pick-ups and drop-offs, “all sporting events” and “up to three activities of the kids’ choice”. James also promised that he could provide “three hours of instructional learning of valuable life skills including car maintenance and mowing the lawn.”

The ad doesn’t end there. He also mentioned that “Private time” is “negotiable upon application”, but comes with the condition of the kids being asleep or out of the home.
