Home and Away’s James Stewart may be known for stirring up trouble as Justin Morgan on the hit soap, but he’s also one seriously doting dad.

The proud father loves nothing more than posting about his daughter, Scout, who he shares with ex-partner Jessica Marais.

The actor has never been shy about celebrating his daughter Scout’s life milestones with his fans, sharing sweet posts to mark her major life events including her birthdays and first day of school.

Quite frankly, we can’t get enough of their adorable bond.

In 2019, Scout stole the show when she starred as the flower girl at her dad’s wedding to his Home and Away co-star Sarah Roberts in Ireland.

Scout has also tried her hand at acting, with the upcoming star set to join Summer Bay for the upcoming reboot.

“My daughter came to play Annabel Wolf. She was an exceptional cast member. I always like it when a young person comes in and they work really hard and do a really good job. It makes you go ‘This is worth it. What we’re doing is worth it,” James told TV WEEK.

Before their stunning Irish nuptials, James admitted Scout had been wanting her dad to propose to Sarah for a while before he bought the ring, thanks to her love of prince and princess movies.

In an interview with our sister site, WHO Magazine, James confessed being a father had made him a “better man.”

“I’m kinder, more attentive, more involved and passionate about life, way more protective and caring,” he said. “But most of all, it’s made me more loving.

“Every night at Scout’s bedtime, I make sure I’m there to tell her I love her. I make sure she hears the words ‘Daddy loves you’.”

But his fatherhood journey was very much moulded by his partner Sarah, who has also helped Scout develop “from a young lady into a young lady.”

“Scout goes to Sarah with questions she sometimes doesn’t want to talk to me about straight away.

“I wouldn’t be the father I am without Sarah.”
