Dial up 96.5 FM in the Acadiana area, and you might hear something like this: “Your complete forecast is coming up for KPEL news, I’m Brandon Comeaux, our top story… “

Radio broadcaster is the job. But in terms of life, the top story for Brandon Comeaux is right around the corner.

Not so long ago, Brandon and his wife Hannah received a special announcement: The Comeauxes are going to be parents.

“So, my wife and I are having our very first baby, a baby girl,” says Brandon. “Due in October, October 28th, and we’re very excited.”

Introducing Adeline Grace Comeaux, and already, ALREADY, she is the apple of her daddy’s eye.

Married for four years, Brandon and Hannah thought they’d wait a few years before they started a family, but divine intervention has decided now is the right time. “There are times we still catch ourselves and say, ‘Wow. We are about to have a baby girl’.”

He’s been reading up on fatherhood, and knows in his heart that, “…it’s more of an honor, an honor more than anything else to be called a ‘father’.”

There so many emotions running through Brandon Comeaux’s mind. And he thinks about his own father, and can’t wait to pass along his dad’s ongoing message of parental faith and support.

“And that’s one thing I want to take away from him: that I want my daughter to know that I believe in her and think the utmost of her. No matter what’s going on in the world, I want her to always
know that her daddy loves her and her daddy thinks the world of her.”

He can’t wait for the tea parties, for the games and the playing. Can anyone doubt that come late October Brandon Comeaux will be an amazing father?

“Am I nervous? Just slightly,” laughs Brandon. “Honestly, I’m more excited than anything else. I just can’t wait. I really can’t wait to meet her.”
