    The precedent has been set with regards to children on the show. I saw all of 2 minutes footage of him with his daughter on the last show, in the park along with his parents. I don't see him dragging the poor child along with him on dates! Seriously, if they are going to bill the lead as a single father or mother, of course the kid is going to be a part of the show.

    To me, that is very different than the train wreck that is the octomom. At least, a different level of exploitation, if you will.

    I still don't like it. Single father to me, means the child lives with him and there is no mother in the picture.

    First time in the series, where I have not watched even one minute pf any show. I was totally disinterested in him as a lead. He is certainly good looking - I will give him that,

    Single Father to me means that he is single, doesn't "live with" a woman, and is the primary or 50/50 shared custody holder & decision maker for the child.
    I put the same qualifications on Single Mother.
    The other parent can well be in the picture, but if the other parent is the primary custody holder, then it's stretching things too far to call the non-custodial one Single Parent.

    I guess when he says stepmom for Camille, I think of that differently as well. I grew up with a stepmom meaning the wife had died, and she was now the stepmom..oh well

    Stepmom is whomever marries your Dad, regardless of whether or not your Mom has passed or not.

    Does JP have 50/50 custody? Has the custody schedule been mentioned?

    Also, why did he quit soccer? Clearly many other soccer players have kids
    and don't quit work.

    I don't think he quit soccer...soccer quit him. Camilla is just an excuse for the show. From all accounts, his contract expired and he was not picked up by another team.

    Yup, nobody picked him up lol. Camilla to me is a prop( I don't doubt he loves her)

    My husbands daughters were so glad when I said please use my first name, they didn't want to call me stepmom..same with me when my dad remarried, I said I have a mom, seeing him happy was fantastic, but his wife was not my mum.. that's why when Jpab goes on and on about finding a stepmom, I could hurl...

    But that's what you usually call the woman who marries your father. I had a lovely stepmom for many, many years. She was not my mom, never tried to be. But she was a mothering figure in my life and was very important in her own right, at least to me. Since his child is still very young, if he does remarry and the child spends time with him, at his house, you can bet your boots the new stepmom will be doing mothering things for Camilla. I never called my stepmom anything but her first name, because that felt more comfortable. Same with my stepdad, who was the most loving caring father figure I have ever had, and who I miss every day. I think it is too easy to get hung up on titles.
